I'm with Phil; this post is a home-run. The changing dynamic and demands in the workplace (partially as a result of the economy) almost requires employees to demonstrate the entrepreneurial drive, spirit and initiative. The companies that frown on this, and the people who walk by desks with raised eyebrows, are frightening at best.
@sueyoungmedia Thanks, Susan.
For many years, outside of the tech sector, independent thinkers were seen as trouble makers.
Companies are always late to adopt cultural changes. We're no longer a society that follows orders without question and respects authority because we're told to. This will force companies to be more creative with their leadership.
Thanks for dropping by.
