What If People Donít Want 'A Career?'


You devote the bulk of every day for 30-40 years in the prime of your life to various companies to make them and their shareholders money and then you get ten years near the end of your life to do what you please. Sounds like a bad arrangement.

Employees who donít show enough deference to the company and, most importantly, to the manager are seen as a liability.

... the career is a device that businesses and managers can use as a motivation to get the deference and feigned enthusiasm that they want (and often feel they need) from employees. Itís a great tool, in part because career arcs are real. Perceptions and reputations matter and offices have promotional structures that workers want to move up. But the career concept is also frequently abused and lorded over employees. What is billed as mentorship and training (hereís how we do things/hereís how to get ahead) can quickly turn into intimidation and even a vague threat against a personís future (donít cross me or itíll cost you).
