10 LIES ABOUT WORK/Lie Nr. 9 – Diversity is the best way to succeed.

Ok, this is a topic highly promoted mostly in the so called “multinational companies”. And at some points I would truly agree that indeed diversity can bring a big added value to any business. While the traditional notion of workplace diversity may refer to representations of various races, genders and religious backgrounds, today’s concept of […]

10 LIES ABOUT WORK/Lie Nr. 8 – People can reliably rate each other at work.

I’ve been in this situation a lot of times until now. I would say that I’ve been more rated than rater. But either way, this is the most impossible thing that a human can do to another human. Those at HR departments who think they will ever have any accurate results to such ratings, they […]

10 LIES ABOUT WORK/Lie Nr. 7 – The best plan always wins.

This is again something that many managers think so. They really thing that THE BEST PLAN ALWAYS WINS. Sometimes I just stay alone and ask myself, why the business world and (not only) is ruled by so many incompetent people which are easily promoted in management position without having done anything remarkable, except the fact […]

10 LIES ABOUT WORK/Lie Nr. 6 – The best staff is well-rounded.

This statement is very common in many organizations. If you want to apply for a job which require a high qualification and offers you nice benefits in return, you will get first a long list of requirements from that company which is asking you to prove your competencies in as many of your future tasks […]

10 LIES ABOUT WORK/Lie Nr. 5 – The most successful companies cascade goals.

Again this is of course an illusion. It is a very big lie which most people are so brainwashed that finally they truly believe that it’s a great truth. No it’s not. It’s another fat mistake that an incredibly big amount of companies continue to use it in their business. Goals are the same like […]

10 LIES ABOUT WORK/Lie Nr. 4 – People need feedback.

No they don’t. It’s exactly the opposite = People DON’T NEED FEEDBACK. This is again something worth to be discussed.I am 100% sure that everyone of you at least 1 time per year give a feedback at work (either to evaluate someone’s performance in the same team or to evaluate someone from another team ).  […]

10 LIES ABOUT WORK/Lie Nr. 3 – The balance between Work and Life matters most.

Whaaat??? A Balance??? No it isn’t. I repeat what I’ve already said couple of times in my previous posts: Work is something people don’t want to do, but they still do it anyway because the system is made so to keep us wired and to be forced to work. There are exceptions of course but  […]

10 LIES ABOUT WORK/Lie Nr. 2 – People do care which company they work for.

First of all let me say it exactly how it is. Of course this is another big fat lie about work. The general truth is exactly the opposite = People DO NOT care for which company they work for. In fact, people in general don’t give a shit on that. AUDI, BMW, TOYOTA, MICROSOFT, GOOGLE, […]

10 LIES ABOUT WORK/Lie Nr. 1 – People Have Potential

I must admit that after working in industry for some years and seeing how companies work I can perfectly understand why many of them fail in business, some are failing dramatically. Or let’s say they literally go bankrupt. Why ? well… that’s very oblivious for me, I have no doubt that it’s due to huge incompetence […]
