As a soldier, you obey. As a civilian, when you finally understand what is required for survival and you embrace the challenge you make many choices. In my years of experience working in the accounting profession success was measured very differently, while existing each owner’s cultures/environments and management styles, you must develop continual strategies, along the system, on what to watch for silently and react to cautiously. This has nothing to do with the workload! From what I have observed over the years in the dynamics of business operations, it’s always better at the top, sometimes! The games people play can either be helpful or devastating. By-the-way, I worked my way from the floor to the ceiling over the 30 plus years. This journey of mine, continues to be filled with anxiety and it continues to draw me in, strangely. People are people. It’s their objectives that keeps me poised. But what unnerves me the most is crony-ism and nepotism. But remember bottom line is SURVIVAL!
About the Book
An Unsilent Partner recognizes that a business doesn’t grow without its people, but some decisions are made, which may or may not benefit everyone. In these moments, the author contends that an enlightenment occurs, a phrase in Latin called Temet Nosce, that means “Know thy self.” As he describes it, “This revelation begins a journey of enigmatic consequences or great achievements together as a team with strong sagacity of synergy or clearly a diverse trend.”
An Unsilent Partner isn’t your usual grind of a book. It is a screenplay, written in a screenplay form – however it shall entertain one will be an answered curiosity.
Always rely on your gut feelings, when making a tough decision.
I only smoke a cigar when I close a deal!
Every day your integrity is at stake. You are tempted to steal, cheat, lie and deceive. You must remember that ethics are imperative!
