People Think That Their Relation with the Organization is Forever

The most important relation in your life is also in need of care.
I have been working in organizational change for years. The truth is simple: people in organizations think that their relation with the organization is forever and ever a tidy and nice one. We do not consider it necessary at all to put care and attention into the organization we are spending half of our days in. We care about our car, about our house and garden, about family and friends and if we are really a good person into our private relation. In this we put the other half of our time.
The discussion is if a special department should take care of the wellbeing of our organization, certainly we do not have it on our day and week planning. Unfortunately a special department (the O from P, never ever blossoming in Europe) will never be able to maintain 'the organization' for us. Lately we tried with the controllers function in a work process controlling role. But that will also fail if care and attention is not coming from us all.
So put your organization, your work approach, your efficiency to deliver added value to your customers on your weekly task planning. And convince your manager this is the subject you would like to get supervision for.
