What I have learned
The perception of people in business not knowing what question they are asking, but seemingly knowing the answer makes much sense.
I find that in large companies a lot of people know very little. (Finding the hidden agenda)
The ones who know least are usually the ones at the top of the company. They usually know least about how the business runs and even less about the people who work in it.
They often have an idea, but no idea of how to reach a goal on a practical level. So they have meetings about it with other people who don’t know either.They know that the few who DO know about things are the ones who are NOT running the company and are not members of the golf club. SO they ignore them.The talented ones are often the ‘under-heard’ and ‘underpaid’.
Please don’t publish my name, thank you, or I may never get under-paid again for what I know!
