It’s been said a thousand times, so my saying it one more time won’t hurt. In fact, it may help.
People don’t quit jobs. People quit people.
Why do I mention this, today?
Maybe because I’ve been noticing a recurrent theme in some recent articles and blog postings. The theme that us older folk to really don’t understand how to manage these next few generations coming into the workforce.
I don’t think those articles are wrong. At all. They just gave me pause.
And they reminded me that, “People don’t quit jobs. People quit people.”
And then they go on and do exactly the same job, for different people. And if those people screw up, then the cycle starts all over again. And again. And again.
So, maybe, the next time you’re looking to move on, you can focus on the people with whom you want to work. Rather than the job.
And maybe if you’re running a company, you should spend some time focusing on the people, rather than the task.
Just a thought.
