Take the lead

Posted in Uncategorized by Ahmed Siddiqui on February 14, 2010

At the end of two years in revolutionary efforts like team building, strategy aligning, building a technical architecture and an efficient and simple programming platform we could come out of the state of deficiency and chaos, which is a norm of industry like ours (immature and subject to change) and people like us (developed by 3rd world’s education system). Fortunately, I had couple of people who were honest with their profession and people. They were just seeking for couple of cheap but rare organizational attributes like direction and appreciation.

Unfortunately, the senior and seasoned people in organizations usually do not realize that a fresh employee is just like a newly born baby. You can shape her according to your needs but you have to treat. These freshies do spare enthusiasm and passion but they lack direction and orientation. The assumption that they’ll start performing like their peers from the very first day, is nothing but a fool’s fantasy. Your team or organizations is like a moving bus whatever the speed is but these new passengers have to set their speed and you have to set their direction before they can jump into the moving bus.
