I rarely discuss the topic work or better yet never wrote about it. It never occurred to me to discuss it as I just wanted to be focus on the otherside of work life which is not much after a 09:00 -17:00 to be honest.
However, I am thinking about training, career, development and leadership more and more. When you have aspirations and looking to build a clear vision of what you would like for your future you will take this things in consideration.
We spend majority of our day in work and surrounded by people with whom we may or may not strike friendships. That is a challenge in itself as no one wants to feel alone and without someone they can talk too and trust at work.
Now imagine how this would feel if there was a bad relationship with your manager, team leader or boss.
In context of leadership, I feel that having a sense that you all working as a team regardless of hierarchies is best for an organisation. You must know each others boundaries and responsibilities but have the organisation purpose in mind and at heart.
I leave you with this thought:
A boss creates fear, a leader confidence. A boss fixes blame, a leader corrects mistakes. A boss knows all, a leader asks questions. A boss makes work drudgery, a leader makes it interesting. -
