A good portion of our lives is spent at the workplace and working at home. Globalization has taken “do more with less resources” to a new level. Using my career experiences, observations, and education, I will bring real-life scenarios of the Trilogy: Career, Management, and the Workplace to you for interactive dialogue and commenting. Work-life balance is not an easy feat. The goal of my blog is to dive into trilogy challenges we see and face as well as provide realistic approaches to move forward.
Throughout my career, I have had too many bosses. Their drive was all about being authoritative. "I am powerful in title therefore, you must obey, and do as I say" regardless, if it is not the correct path or does not align with company philosophy or culture. In today's terms, bosses are classified as bullies when they "inspire" using fear tactics and degradation. They will often refer to the "I" as if the work was accomplished by them when there were victories, yet when there were failures and struggles, it was always "you," "they," or "the team."
Where do you go? What do you do when you find yourself unemployed and entering the workforce after a dedicated tenure to a company you thought you would retire from? While pondering the question, keep the following in mind, "The median number of years that wage and salary workers had been with their current employer was 4.6 years in January 2014, unchanged from January 2012, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today."
