Like it or not, there is a war happening in the workplace.We all compete for recognition, rewards, promotions, raises, the most interesting projects and the best jobs.
If you DON’T compete, or are unaware of the completion, guess what? You lose. And sometimes you lose without ever knowing there was a battle.
The modern work environment can be comfortable, energizing and productive. It can also be frustrating, oppressive and debilitating. In a tough economic environment we are often asked to do more with less. We are expected to take on additional work (and feel grateful for it) when others are laid off.
Income has stagnated and we see fewer opportunities for promotion. Yet we are still ambitious, so the workplace becomes a competitive environment with some taking credit for the work of others and everyone trying to avoid the taint of a failed project or assignment.
Give these harsh realities, this site is dedicated to helping employees deal productively with common frustrations including:
- bad bosses
- backstabbing co-workers
- failed projects
- missed promotions
- sudden job losses
But even MORE IMPORTANTLY this site is focused on helping your increase your career trajectory in the face of these difficult situations. Like it or not the old rules of career advancement no longer apply. Well, they still apply, if you are comfortable with a slow, steady, flacid career progression that ultimately leads to a modest comfortable life.
There was a time when just working hard, doing a good job and staying loyal to your employer could ensure a healthy career progression, but these rules no longer apply. This site will help you understand the new rules AND figure out what you need to do to drive your career progress as rapidly as possible.
