I've been in the corporate world since 1984 (and now waiting for my letter that will hopefully say I'm in nursing school
in January). Having been subjected to Quality Circles, Total Quality Management, the 7 Habits, and the recent Customer Retention craze, let me share a few things....
1) It truly is "management initiative du jour" -- some moron who had probably never had any contact with the public (or worked in your field) writes a book, does a bunch of seminars, makes a bunch of money, and we have to implement it...no kidding, it doesn't work...?
2) 99 percent of the time, these "management initiatives" die a quiet death within 5-7 years, and are replaced by an equally useless and insane management initiative. Never, ever, under any circumstances point out that this was tried before and failed miserably. You've just given a pencil head a challenge, and they will be determined to make the unworkable work...at your expense.
3) The only thing more deadly (in a corporate sense) than vocally being for this BS is being vocally against it. Remember, the function of management no matter where you work is to confuse motion with achievement. As in, we're going in circles, but we're making great time...
4) Right now, the thing is the personality tests (and you'll continue to get Myers Briggs kinds of things once hired, probably, where I work we all have our grid hanging outside our cubes saying what works for us). I'd talk to the people you'd actually be working with to find out if the implementation is actually interfering with working with patients. If it is, go somewhere else. If not, and you want to work there, give the BS answers they want, not the way you'd really be.
5) And finally...if push comes to shove, and management's really gone bonkers (and you've already got a place ready to go, FIRST)...point out to your management that you are their (management's) customer, and you do not feel like you are getting adequate service. You are resigning due to their absolute failure to maintain an adequate customer focus, flawed quality controls, whatever management phrases they are most fond of using. Turn greater strength (or in this case, stronger BS) back on itself.
