We have some challenges going on at the office right now.
It brings to mind the differences between management and the front line employees.
Those of us on the front lines have basically two camps, the just do our jobs and get through the day, or people like me who are intrepreneurs. For those who are not aware of the term, an intrepreneur is an employee who has a mind set of an entrepreneur, watching for ways to make the company more effective or profitable as if it were their own.
For an intrepreneur, it is hard to watch what they perceive as managerial mis-steps. After all we are the ones on the front lines doing battle with the customers or the equipment (network in my case).
The employees who just keep their head down and just do the job may have less stress, just following the flock even if it leads to the pack of wolves. For me, I see shit and from my perspective I think I smell the wolves around the bend.
I know that the executives have their grand plans with spreadsheets and graphs, and they may be wonderful, but not to the people doing the labor.
Seems kind of like the 1% and 99% situation doesn’t it?
