As we sat I asked him the reason for taking such a big step. I was amazed to listen to his reason. He said, “ I don’t think the culture of business here suits my skills.”
I was amazed to know the reason, as I thought his complete potential was being utilized by this job, and that his skills were not getting wasted.
I asked him, “What work culture do you think will suit you?”
He said, “ I feel I can do better.”
I asked him to suggest some methods to improve our culture of the business, but he had nothing to say.
To this, I said, “Is the culture of business a problem or your thoughts?”
I explained to him how no work culture is perfect and how it is our thoughts that make things perfect or imperfect for us. If he would only look for negative points, negative points are what he’ll find.
The man now understood that he was only looking for negative aspects of the scenario. He dropped the idea of resigning and is now working in a great position in our firm.
