Organizations often encounter challenges in an understanding of organizational objectives and individual contributor divergences. Some organizations have found increased morale as opinionated input is sought in discovering solutions to a new business problem. Other organizations are clear in the defined objectives, yet do not present much space for individual perspectives – either due to stated roles or the existing business model. Such organizations may not have the highest levels of engagement. Other organizations with high engagement levels often provide welcoming environments and a pleasant organizational culture. In such organizations, opinionated input and hierarchy may or may not be some of the highest factors in evaluating organizational dynamics. In dealing with people, those that constantly attempt to make difficulties that undermine overall success (including goodwill) for a given organization or department have been common throughout management theory and business development.
Personal motivation and personal viewpoints may impact overall organizational performance. Someone in resonance with a sound organization will find an empowerment to grow, enabled with opportunities to provide value within the organization and to stakeholders not within the organization. Value is derived not just from a directly numerical calculation, rather it is inclusive of the potential of client impact and long-term value derived from investment and process efficiencies.
