Everybody 08:42 on Tuesday

Everybody wants to be involved in strategic decision making.

Everybody wants to build better company culture.

Everybody — from design to marketing, from sales to HR, from usability to research — thinks their field should be embraced more widely. Everybody thinks their work should involve everyone in the company.

Everybody thinks their work is undervalued by management.

Everybody longs for direction.

I see a trend here but I don’t know what it means.

    Everybody is a good, passionate worker.

    Everybody experiences the word from a different perspective? (with oneself always and forever in the middle of one’s personal universe)

    Janne; Indeed the “everybody” I refer to are the people who are passionate about what they do. On the other hand, they are also possibly frustrated about others not “getting it”, about not being able to give their all.

    Tommi, I think the difference (?) I believe I’m seeing is that people are noticing they need others to understand about or participate in what they’re doing, to further the common good.

  4. Janne Says:

    If passionate workers didn’t have problems to fix, they would be complacent workers… There needs to be just the right amount of frustration. Too much, and people leave (or work at 25% capacity); too little, and people will start slacking.

    But I don’t really know :-)

    I still can’t quite figure out why I have this feeling that people in all kinds of fields are struggling for a more “wholistic approach” towards work, or doing business…

    Perhaps the global economy crisis has made it more approachable and personal to people?
