This past week I came back to work after being gone a week for my brothers funeral.
My human resource person comes drooping in where I am sorting though stuff to deliver for the day and says she needs to talk to me......I said OK.......How about now?
I go in her office and she sits and I sit......she says ......Your job is going to change......and tells me the two things that are going to change.
She says nothing like Good Morning ......how are you today......glad you are back blah blah blah! She is the first person I see and speak with after being out a week for a funeral.
Besides all that .....what was changing was based on misinformation from the person that does my job while I was gone.......who was fired yesterday btw......but that is another story.
I was talking to another person about how this all went down and I said ......WE have to always sharpen our skills to deal with the inadequite way our superiors handle things. She agreed.
I thought how this is in the organization of JW's. We are constantly told to respect elders and that they are taking the lead, but in so many ways our skills are sharper than theirs. So we lose respect and find it very difficult to keep taking direction from them.
What was different about my job, is that over the course of the week, I was able to bring this morons stupid stunts to the forefront of my superiors and he did get fired and I was able to keep some dignity and integrity without the drastic changes they first were ordering.
I think if we as the R/F ever felt like what we said had any bearing on decisions made .......we might not have gotten so discouraged....and investigated the organization as we have. We truely had to sharpen our skills to deal with what was dished out to us.
Just my thoughts for the evening.......what do you think?
