Change is good

April 26, 2010
The environment in which we work makes or breaks our career development.

Young professionals achieve best in nurturing work environments that play to their current skills
while still challenging them to develop new ones.

It’s fine to have high expectations and to hold people accountable,
but it never works to beat people into submission.

Several young professionals I know worked in a place that purported to be team-oriented.
Actually, though, senior management’s motto should have been
The beatings will continue until morale improves.

Management pigeonholed young professionals early, which significantly limited their ability to develop in their positions.
Some never did achieve their potential until they left.

And then? They thrived.

It’s fun to see several young friends achieving wonderful things in supportive new environments and making their dreams come true by doing something new.

Change is good.
