How dare you be productive in ways I don't understand? 

I had a few minutes to spare during a break in a workshop. The workshop participant proudly explained to me how he had shut down the use of IM, Twitter, Facebook and other ‘time-wasting’ applications on his company’s network and company-issued cell-phones.

I shared with him how he could harness those applications to improve external and internal communications, rather than view them as ‘time-wasting’. He said:

I don’t want my people being productive in ways I don’t understand.

What change are you balking at because you don’t understand it?
