Interesting post from Trista Harris at New Voices of Philanthropy on Respecting Your Elders and Doing Their Peformance Review. Whether in corporate, military, governmental, or nonprofit life, this whole deal of who is whose "superior" strikes me as one of the most important facets of our life world. We have learned in our souls that we all have an immediate superior. The political implications of this model are significant. Trista, if you were my boss, I would serve you faithfully, as your boss expects your service on up to the Decider himself. Let us not make waves or we might lose our position in the hierarchy and find ourselves in the Dumpster with the disenfranchised. Nice to see that the up and coming voices of philanthropy are so well socialized. The meek have already inherited the world. Clearly, they will pass it on in good order, subject to the approval of the Higher Ups.
