... I know when I accept a new employment position I am required to have a short learning curve to learn the organization. Regardless, I am required to do my job right now! I am chosen for a job based on my qualifications — I do not have a year of paid “learning curve” built in.
I know that mission statements without the authority, training, planning and tools needed are no more than window dressing.
I know that operating a company (city) without a president will result in stagnation and wasted time and money. An organization must have a leader.
