Adenji,

The Latest from the tale at Man United is that they are dumping Native Homegrown Talent (like the upcoming Striker Star Danny Welbeck) out because they don't fit in as "Winners" in the Current manager's squad.

There is no one amongst any of the new players coming in who is going to have anything like the Love,Loyalty and respect for Man United that this Homegrown talent has.

More foolishness is going to end up killing the Soul of Man United-Just like what is happening with most of Corporate America today.

Adenji,

Expendable is the word!

This is precisely why so many Enterprises are getting totally messed up today-Chasing Short-term Goals at the expense of Long-term Fundamentals.

How are you going to change that?

Unless consumers don't pressurize companies I don't see too much changing soon.

Good post!

I agree with you on that. Many companies do believe that the people are more than the available jobs so treat employees like an expendible assets.

pocharle,

Wow!

You seem to have nailed it perfectly!

Have to agree with your sentiments almost perfectly.

And here I feel the fault lies partially with our Culture of Instant Gratification and also with a Culture which has stopped Valuing Employees for the work they do.

We need to stop treating Employees as Easily Replaceable Assets.

Adenji,

Have to agree wholeheartedly with your sentiments here.

Its all to do with the way our Culture/Society has fallen backwards by wanting Everything in Real-Time rather than working hard for the process.

I would like to share with you an anecdote of My Favorite Team-Manchester United.

[I am sure you must have heard of them;they are a world famous English Football Club].

During this weekend before their Latest Game;the Commentators were outlining some interesting Statistics;which I would like to share with you here.

Stat 1)Louis Van Gaal(The Current Manager of United) has spent more on players in 2 months as Manager of United than his Opposition (Burnley)has Spent in their ENTIRE Club Career of 125 years.

Stat 2)The Total Value of Entire Burnley Squad today is just 5 million Pounds;United spent 12 Times that on just One Player recently -Di Maria.

What did that Achieve?

The End Result was 0-0[A Draw].

 

Stat 3)Louis Van Gaal has spent more on Buying New Players in 2 months than Sir Alex spent in his Last 10 years at United. (The Previous Super-Successful Manager who won Dozens of Titles by building and dismantling 3 Totally Different teams during his 20 years at United).

 

My Point is primarily this-You are working in a Team and it takes time to build Team Spirit ,Culture and Pride for your Team.You simply can't BUY Success.Atleast on a constant Basis.

The Best Example of the Failure of this strategy is the Richest Football Club in the World-Real Madrid.

If it was just a question of Money Madrid,would have won everything every year.

Last Year they won Nothing.

Anyways,Back to the Real World ;and yes the Same Philosophy also applies here to Team Building and Building great products.You just can't poach your way to success consistently.

@pocharle, I agree, many companies think training could be an additional cost and time consuming which may seems as an unprofitable venture.

@tech4people,

I'd say 4 main reasons:

1. People feel they're under-paid
2. People feel micro-managed
3. People don't feel like their job makes any difference
4. People don't feel like they are good enough for their role

pocharle,

Nice to hear there are many other such folks who live by this line of thinking.

Just wonder why is that more such folks don't think accordingly?

Is it because too much Responsibility(Day to Day work ,etc) or is it because after some time the Creative Spark just goes out of You?

Or is it because most folks are content with being Ordinary or rather don't want to put in the extra effort required to be a Star?

@pocharle: Cannot agree with you on it more. I think that will change the whole concept towards a positive manner.
