Complaining is easy. Learning how your organization works as described here by Cindy Sridharan is hard. Which of the two do you prefer to do?

  • The mirage of aspiration
  • Know how your org works
  • Soft skills are hard skills
  • Understand implicit hierarchies
  • Cultures: top-down, bottom-up and both
  • Get comfortable with the ‘mess’
  • Look for small (and any) wins
  • Understand org constraints and manage your expectations

“Get comfortable with the ‘mess'” and I can let you in on a small secret: everything is a mess.
