Q. There are many people who believe that their bosses haven’t backed them up well enough while they were being sacked. That they’ve protected their own jobs and let their juniors suffer. Your comments?

 

A. Smell the coffee, sir. In an ideal world, the role expectations from a leader could have been what you have in mind. Now everyone has to fend for themselves at the core. A boss can support up to a point. Then organisational priorities get the better off altruistic requirements. After all an enterprise has to operate with the sanity of generating a reasonable surplus from its operations. In a crisis, rationalisation of operations is inevitable. And that’s when Darwinism comes into operation, both at the corporation level and at individual level. One can’t really blame anyone in general. Hence self-introspection at an individual level is a must even in the good times. One should always be armoured with 4-5 parallel career possibilities to obviate any eventuality. Waiting for the graciousness of bosses to survive might not be a good strategy for long-term sustenance.
