Good morning Gatherers! I have a question for you guys and gals, it is an issue that I have been struggling with for some time. Have you ever lost your ambition and drive on your workplace? Better yet, have you allowed your ambition and drive to be taken from you? If so, have you gotten it back? If you got it back, how?
Approximately a year ago, I allowed a really horrible manager to take my ambition and drive. I could go on forever about this man but we would have a book if I did so. Basically, in a nut shell, he was a micro manager that cared nothing about people other than using them to further his career. This man was relieved of his duties and we obtained a new manager. Once the new manager was in place, I found my drive and ambition for a few weeks and then BAM, I received word that I was being laid off due to my department being moved to another business office. Needless to say, I lost my drive and ambition once again.
I have never been without drive and ambition in the workplace and it scares me! Will it come back when I find another job?
