You Can Take This Job and . . .

The cutthroat politics at work are killing me. The sad part is, they're killing the organization, too. Because they kill the regular working person's spirit.

So many of the best "workers" I know are afraid. Afraid to tell the truth. Afraid to stick their neck out. Afraid to share what they know! What the hell?! How is this a good thing?

A mind is a terrible thing to waste. And we're wasting a lot of them.

They are afraid of losing. Losing respect. Losing face. Losing their jobs.

The culture in our organization is "shoot the messenger." When people know things aren't working, they don't share because they then become the defacto cause of the failure.
