Unintentionally Passive

are often hired
to solve
a problem.

But employees often think
they’re hired
to do
a job.

If the job done
doesn’t solve the problem
that inspired the hire
employees can be perceived
as passive
even if they’re proactive
in doing their job.

If the problem to be solved
isn’t clear
employers can be perceived
as unappreciative
and disrespectful
even if they care
about their employees.

Contextual Difference

When it rains,
you can passively get wet
or actively feel
and every rain drop
on every corner
of your body.

Same rain.

Different intention.

Different feeling.

Different meaning.

Let us reflect
on what gives rise
to the differences.
