One of my friend working in a big multi national company (Culturally diverse), was talking to me and said that : "Dude, My Boss told me to control my enthusiasm of how I do stuff!!, And it was really discouraging. Truly saying, I work in my company the most faithful way I could, I invest all my strengths, skills, education and hard work for the success of what is being done. I am totally dispaired to listen this!"
I was totally moved by the discouragement he was carrying along with him. I dont see any of his mistakes. But that is not my real concern. Real concern is How management perceives this? Is he doing anything bad by being over enthusiastic? If he is open to learn and welcome people to correct himself, Should he not expect the same behaviour from others? In my vote, suppresing his enthusiasm will always cause a loss to Company. Expert views????
