The importance of being me…

20 Mar

“Servility ahead of competence is something we emphasise right from kindergarten to the workplace. This must stop…

People (have to) learn to think for themselves. This is very important because we are largely adaptive in our ways of working, and we really find it very difficult when it comes to dialogue, debate, confrontation and building a point of view…

Irreverence to existing ways, entrenched gospel, systems, processes, organisations, ways of doing things and even people in authority, is the starting point of innovation.”

From “The Missing I” by Subroto Bagchi (http://www.mindtree.com/kc/the-missing-i.html)
