Why not valued team member or synergistic contributor? The word peon originally described a certain class of people; some would say that it still does. However, I would argue that peonage is a state of mind. It is a situation in which we feel like we have no control over what is being done.

Some may feel that way at work. Others may feel powerful at work, and then become a peon when they get home. Because so many relationships exist in society, it is safe to say that each one of us, in some capacity or another, is a peon. Embrace your inner peon. It is part of life. It is the way our societies are set up.
However, because each of us is a peon in some form or another, we can also conclude that each of us is a manager in some form or another. We are a manager in the sense that someone else likely feels they are our peon. Possibly you are a peon at work all day but then, when you get home, you are the president of your homeowners association.

Industrial management ISBNs Management books are traditionally written by industry "experts": scholars, consultants, senior managers. They're writing about how to manage workers, but none of these experts really understands the viewpoint of the average worker, the regular grunt in the trenches-the peon. Peons are the ones affected when a manager decides to manage-in-one-minute, to move somebody's cheese, to try that fifth discipline.
Rather than consult some expert, why not go to the source, and ask the peons?
