What if we got near real time feedback from people we interacted with? And perhaps this feedback fed into our compensation package? Maybe the problem isn't that it's hard to promote yourself up the ladder in a collaborative environment. Rather the ladder IS the problem. 3/3

Imagine an environment where we engage more of the person. There are responsibilities; work to be done. Maybe the work is commonly known or maybe you see opportunity where others haven't yet. Folks opt into the work. They volunteer for responsibilities. 2/?

For environments still entrenched in job ladders and narrow career paths, this is a struggle. What if growth weren't just vertical (promotion)? What if growth were also horizontal (new responsibilities)? 1/?

Don't send them to teamwork and collaboration training if you reward them for individual performance.

Been noticing how often we frame questions assuming there is one definitive answer. Example: How do you recruit the best ppl? Instead: What have you tried when recruiting that's worked / not worked? Our desperation for "the answer" robs us of a whole range of learning.

My (unsolicited) thought - Work with them to establish clear agreed criteria; You can move when these things are completed. If this is not possible, perhaps out is better than up? I hope it works out for you.

"We were told we need CI so we installed a Jenkins server, but nobody pays attention to it." "So you need CI." "But we installed it..." CI is what the team does every day, not what program runs on a server.

There will be no more refactoring and testing until you can deliver defect free code. There will be no more soccer practice until you can start winning some games. You are not allowed to study until you can get your grades up. Truth?

A good manager does their best to empower their people within the system. A great manager does their best to dismantle any system that takes people's power away in the first place.

So what I think I hear you saying is,, "Denying employees opportunities for growth is instinctual and necessary for a manager's survival." Is that what you meant to say?

Sure. Discussion isn't "if", but when and how.

Dear "make believe" Leaders, It really is daft to design an organisational structure that values poor performance of one skill (i.e. management) over mastery of another (i.e. testing) forcing people to pursue career changes just so your own position is "valued" ->

Dear Managers, It is unethical to deny an employee an internal growth opportunity because they are too valuable to move out of your area. Your leadership shortfalls should never be the responsibility of the employee.

Spend time with loved ones. Practice self care. Learn new things. Share what I've learned (so far) with others.
