the peter possibility
Dr. Laurence Peter understand the Promise and peril of bureaucracy better than Most.
50 years ago , he wrote ,"manager rise to the level of their incompetence".
the peter principle (rule) states that if you do a good job , you get promoted , until you reach a job where you are incompetent , and there you stay... meaning that:
sooner or later , the entire organization is filled with incompetent people stuck in their slot.
Bureaucracy promises us safe spot , and it also offers the upside that if you do a good job , you will get chosen , picked , promoted and will move up , keep your head down, do what you are told and you win.
we don't live in that world any more.
and the upside is definitely more positive and a lot more scary.
you (and you alone) get to decide if you want to move "up".
if you want to be promoted, have more influence , more Leverage (force , power) and more responsibility.
fearful that we will expose our incompetence, we hide . remembering the lessons of childhood, we wait to get picked.
but the peter possibility points out that we are far more competent that we imagine .
that once we pick ourselves , we have precisely what we need to do generous work.
