It is better to be a dog in peaceful times than a man[ager] in chaotic periods

To paraphrase an old Chinese proverb, "It is better to be a dog in a peaceful time than be a man[ager] in a chaotic period." And if the recent spate of research about the looming demographic crisis in the World's leading economies is anything to go by, there will be plenty of managers who will be yearning after a dog's life rather than face dealing with the problems that lie just around the corner. According to consultants at Deloitte, impending baby boomer retirements, a widening skills gap and outdated approaches to talent management are combining forces to produce a "perfect storm" that threatens long-term business performance. "This trend will leave behind companies that do not begin to rethink their approach to talent management" What do u think?
