Value is an attribute and an action
I met up with a friend this morning to talk about career progress and direction. The conversation moved easily to the difference between our respective companies. One that valued initiative and dedication and one that took those traits for granted.
That conversation made this article from Seth Godin resonate so much more:
"It's unreasonable to expect extraordinary work from someone who isn't trusted to create it."
This is so real!
"It's unreasonable to expect that you'll develop amazing people when you don't give them room to change, grow and fail."
I won't lie. I truly value the position that I have and the company that I currently work for because they value me and make huge efforts to show me the same.
