Own your position

23 July 2013, 14:22

Have you ever wondered why drive goes to waste or is somewhat non-existent in the workplace? Why most individuals aren't out there taking ownership of their competences? Well, there answer is simple...

They woke up one day and realised their skills cannot be put to use without going through different hierarchies or channels. This then limits their competencies. How? Through the standard approach organisations are using. What is happening is organisations or agencies are transferring knowledge which acts as a hand-out on how people should work daily and approach situations they come across.

This stops employees from being creative, proactive, and a sense of inadequacy settles in. As a result, their self-esteem and self-worth starts deteriorating. This could be because said individuals are led to think their boss has a clue on what it takes to be good. Then the house of cards falls.

The reality then becomes one of the employees coming to work daily lacking enthusiasm, passion or perhaps even drive. Management begins wondering why their workforce is not giving its very best. Like a small child, if you use certain negative words when communicating with him or her such as: NO, YOU CANT, SHUT UP the child grows into believing those words and approaching situations with that mentality that they can't.

Lets say you are the employee. Can you relate? Would you agree the workplace is going through a transformation that is mind-boggling? Lets continue to assume that you're agreeing with me. Maybe you are dissatisfied? You feel like your organisation is creating boundaries that limit you. Furthermore, your responsibility is at a comfortable zero.

A2B Transformation Movement model shows out blind spots, "flies in the ointment" and positions people as a non-racial occupational intelligent beings. In addition the A2B organisation will also identify issues which hinder progress within the organisation.

Majority poverty

Being a majority has its advantages and disadvantages, based on various aspects of demographics the citizenry. As far as services are concerned it will always be the minority who will benefit most from government as their numbers can be serviced with the least of money, amenities in their areas will last longer be kept in working order better because of the low demand for it, while on the other hand in the areas of majority it is the excessive usage of services which causes numerous breakdowns and eventually no services. Read more...
