An initial boost of confidence; someone thought you were worth taking a chance on! Some consistency in your life, some firm patterns to keep you moving forward, a sense of the possibility of the things you’d do together, the financial security they offered. But it didn’t take long for all that to change. Almost before it started, the honeymoon was over. You remember the first time you suggested something new, something you hoped to do. ’ Then eventually they just ignored you... so you let it go.
At the individual level, professionalism is the industrialisation of your behaviours and attitudes; it is what keeps you within the spectrum of ‘manageability,’ gradually sucking your sense of self and personal autonomy in the process. ’ While standardisation had previously been applied to the rote mechanical tasks of the shop floor, management needed to find ways to control people in a more diverse range of working environments. ’ early organisational theorists asked themselves, as the West took its first steps into the world of supposed post-industrialism.
I also realised that these organisations had become so calcified, so stuck in their ways, that any change – if only to get things moving again – was better than no change, even if it didn’t answer all of the questions we wanted it to. Once we got things moving, we could continue to adapt, but as long as we remained stuck, we gave up the possibility of something better. The experience left me asking a question that has come to frame my work over the three or so years since I finally left: how can we make our organisations more like people?
