Can you love your organization too much?

Sue Shellenbarger, WSJ, Apr 30, 2014, says some workers are so loyal, they crash and burn if something goes wrong in their company.

It may not even in their dept or under their control. They are devastated.

Others are free agents and see the company as the place that pays them.

One woman was so in love with BP because of its stated environmental concerns--she gave her all for nine years. Then came an explosion, a pipeline spill, and a new CEO--she left.

The hurt ran deep, she said, because she was so in love with that company.

One in three employees are attached to their jobs and this is rising.

Where do you stand?
