One thing I know from experience: when people are given a chance to participate in creating something good, solving a problem, and play a role in adding value through the use of their mind, hands, and heart, good things happen. Indeed, morale increases and a type of magic takes place – a feeling joy can be seen in people’s faces.
When I lead Kaizen and encourage others to participate and, over time, as I take a smaller role and “allow them to increase while I decrease”, I have seen people blossom. Indeed, experiencing humans develop is a very cool thing and I’m so fortunate to have helped others grow.
I found this poster on someone’s wall.
For the record, I don’t agree with the its message. But, the poster is an indictment of most businesses and organizations that preach one thing, but behave completely contrary to the development of the individual and team.
The poster is a satirical commentary on most businesses; a dilbert-ian commentary on what you and I experience in world of work.
What do you think? Do you agree or disagree? What is your experience?
