Business dementors – Day 108/139

Having a good mentor is a great way to support any business.  A mentor can either actively give their advice or passively follow a company and provide their knowledge when they consider it necessary.

Could the opposite of a mentor be called dementor? Let’s see what Harry Potter Wiki says about them:

Dementors feed off human happiness, and thus cause depression and despair to any who are in close proximity to them. They are also capable of consuming a person’s soul, leaving their victims in a permanent vegetative state, and thus are often referred to as soul-sucking fiends.

Not surprisingly, business life is full of dementors that fully match the above description.

Here’s an example of a pack of dementors in action (in Finnish but you’ll get a clue without understanding the language):

Somehow, we have managed to avoid the business dementors in our project so far. But I believe a dementor is a valuable thing to have. Not because they suck your soul but because you have to be hard as a rock to resist them.

So, if you think you have the balls to become our dementor, let us know.
