When I was very young my father taught me different principles of business. The most important one he taught me was a parable about a ship. In the days of pirates and exploration, ships were powered by the people and sails. The captain was in charge. Someone was chosen to manage the workers and yell row. The captain would decide if you were going this way or that. You were paid to row. This is the basic model of a business. No matter what industry you work in, change is inevitable. You may start in a company with one culture and then some big-wig comes in from another town and everything changes. The part to remember is that the course really doesn’t matter. If one day the ship is headed for India and accidentally docs in central America it doesn’t really matter because you were paid the same. As long as you can stand the wage and the work the rest doesn’t really matter. People get into trouble when they start refusing to row because they don’t like the direction they are headed. Sometimes it’s good to question where the ship is headed. Like if a cruise ship is headed towards the rocky cost off Greece and going down. Other times it really doesn’t matter if one day you are paid to go from Engl to the Spain and the next it’s Turkey. The whole key to success in corporate change is to simply go with it and remember what they pay you to do.
