Is our workplace a stepping stone? It seems like it. People come in for a few months, tend to break everything, then move on to their next great thing, landing senior roles elsewhere. I don’t get it really.
I’ve worked with some real incompetents over recent years, witnessing their unprofessional communications, sloppy grammar and technical illiteracy up close, only to see them disappearing off after a few months to become “Head of” somewhere else.
I suppose behind every great manager there is a nerd who does the work, and never makes a fuss when others take the credit. I guess they have that bold tenacity, whereas I just recollect the journey before this. It took me so long to jump onto this stone and steady myself that I’m afraid to step off onto the next one, lest I fall.
