If you follow my blog regularly, you probably know that I also blog with my colleague, Joe Gerstandt, over at the Talent Anarchy blog. Lately, we’ve been discussing work and why, in our opinions, it doesn’t seem to be working.
- We need to take back control of work.
- Personal accountability
- Exceptional skill and abilities
- Fierce authenticity
Adi, Thanks for the comment. I agree that there's a lot of work being done and Management Innovation Exchange is doing some great stuff. My concern is that all of the focus seems to be on the organization. My experience tells me that the organization isn't going to change until the people demand it. I'd like to see more work pointed at helping employees gain the perspective and tools they need to start that transition. My posts were just a small pebble in the ocean in that regard.
I, too, share your hope for change in the next decade, but I'm skeptical that real change will come until it's forced.
Jason, great post. Taking personal responsibility and accountability at work seems more important than ever today so one is part of the solution instead of part of the problem. Want to improve the workplace? You have to be willing to be part of the changes you want to see — speak up, get involved, ask questions. There's so much one can do.
