My Ideal Host Organization/Employer

Employees tend to spend a considerable amount of their time in organizations. To get the most out of them, organizations should ensure that workplaces are free of conflicts. But conflicts are part of reality. Ideally, they should be prevented. Should they occur measures to amicably resolve them ought to be in place.

Rewarding and nurturing of talent drives me to perform to the best of my ability. Similarly, I value diversity for it brings to the fore a variety of ideas and approaches to problem solving exercises. Though mistakes are undesirable, I believe a room for mistakes is necessary because it allows individuals to stretch their boundaries of creativity. Thus I concur with Albert Ianstein’s claim that “Imagination is more important than knowledge”. Knowledge is worth celebrating but if it does not inspire imagination it will be of limited benefit.

Bruce, I also value diversity. As I wrote on my blog, it is an area that has not been properly addressed in organisational structure and culture (whatever that means). Diversity in the workplace does enrich the output of the organisation. It generates ideas and inspires innovation, to my mind.

Bruce, I also agree that diversity is healthy for the work-place.
It brings more fun, more room for interaction among people from various backgrounds and cultures and, above all, it shows different perspectives of how to do things (professionally, individually and socially).

In principle I agree that imagination is more important than knowledge. Yet we usually inspire others trough our knowledge. So the two go together. I mean Albert Einstein was also extremely knowledgeable and hence he was able to inspire others. But it is also true that people who only parade their wisdom may fail to inspire.
