Flexibility

We put it on our CVs. We talk about being flexible all the time. And, we insist that we’ll manage change as it happens. But what does it actually mean?

At what point do we accept that change is normal? That there is no stability? Do we expect too much?

When, as an employee, is it right to question the constant change, and what are the risks in doing so?

I don’t have the answers. I just see what happens when people say no, or when they offer up a different opinion.

In an environment where flexible and adaptable to change are standard contract terms, it’s not surprising to learn that there’s another restructure on the cards.

I, like those working for me, wait in the wings asking ‘What does this mean for me’.
