And this is why! Look familiar?
I wrote awhile back of the Importance of Meetings and how you don’t know what you’re missing if you don’t attend them. However, I have been a part of many meetings that have had absolutely no purpose. Some of the reasons these meetings have had no purpose to me:
What are some reasons you feel meetings have no value?
Have you ever felt like doing this?
Has this happened to you? You put your time and effort into getting people and leaders what they need to be more effective and they don’t give the common courtesy to recognize it.
Management is preperation, time and effort. Leadership is putting good people in good situations for them to be more effective. Often, those who are in roles as managers and often looked to as leaders, are just giving in to pure laziness.
Don’t be lazy!
Every field and industry has their sore spots. Every company and person within a company could stand growth and improvement. While there is nothing new under the sun, there is always something growing.
Frustration, like change, is constant. However, complaining often takes us nowhere. It more often keeps us stagnant in the box we have built for ourselves. It reminds me of the market ups and downs we have seen over the last few weeks and months. It has been up and down. This has lead to complaints. The complaints have lead to speculation. Speculation rather than spending the time to truly fix an issue. People are complaining about how this group needs to do this, and the other group complains about what that group should do about that… all while not doing a thing but making it worse!
So many people are complaining about their fields. I have my gripes as well but just complaining for complaints sake gets us nowhere.
Start taking action versus complaining. Who knows, if you do something about the frustration you face you may just start to have less to complain about.
So regardless, if you are working or not working, in HR or in any other field of business (HR is a field in Business like any other)… stop putting yourselves down so much.
