Inspire Rather than Conspire

I have worked through enough work places by now to recognize that some of the most damaged companies are those that conspire rather than inspire.  They alienate  oppress, prejudice, and even psychologically test and abuse their employees. It's all in the name of power.

The mind boggling thing about all this is that it's not even the superiors doing this.  All my superiors have been respectable people.  It's the shift leaders, store managers, or other work leads who enforce the rules in these really aggressive manners.

What ultimately happens in these scenarios is the spirit of the work culture is dissolved to just a mere power play.  Who knows more? Who has the power to do something over someone else? Who's the enforcer?  Who's the actual problem finder?

The problem with this situation is the following:

1. It kills the motivation of the employees.  It forces people to thrive, to the best of their necessary ability, in a very suffocating environment.  The circumstances puts a strain on these employees - psychologically  and physically.  Therefore, it intervenes with the optimization of success.

2. It's just ethically wrong in the work place.  People usually distance themselves and consider other modes of employment when their well-being is psychologically threatened.

3. Lastly, you lose the cultural stability and successful integrity of any worthy long-term success.

Sometimes I wonder how people decided to be so ruthless.  I ponder at the amazing forgetfulness that we are humans and as such we should be treated and treate others as human beings.  Even in the workplace, treatment of others shouldn't sum up to solely rules, responsibilities and statistics.  Most importantly is the comfort and ease of the employees to approach anything they are responsible for with enthusiasm and a knowledge that there is room for error on the way to improvement.

We are all prone to error, all of our lives, let alone the time we spend in a company.  So the best road to success, especially in positions of leadership, is to allow people to fault in grace.  It's important that people acknowledge where they error, and be comfortable to approach an individual on the ladder up with questions and inquiries.  If that employee is psychological strained and caged to a place of fearful speculation, alienation  and most incredibly conspired against by their superiors, those individuals will never fully realize their true potential in that company.

I have seen a lot of workplace ethical injustice.  I am thankful and grateful that I have come across superiors who have supported and have nurtured my potential.  I am also thankful that I stand by my work ethic and perserverence to always be the best that I can be so that no one superior enough to me can psychologically and professionally abuse.

"You have a heart.  And I shall exploit it."

Beware of individuals who seek to exploit and abuse your good-hearted nature, your well -ntentioned nature, and your ambitious will to be more, to do more with the opportunity you're given, to work above and beyond what's expected of you, to excel even beyond your errors and faults, always!

Inspire rather than Conspire!
