DILEMMA: 'Why won't the employees in my company tell me what they think? Despite the comparative openness of the firm's culture, getting honest feedback from staff is still a nightmare. What can I do?'

What sort of feedback are you looking for - basic operating stuff or people's dreams and nightmares? Most of us want to ensure we know what's going on and what staff are worrying about.
