Duty is a sacred thing. Once you enter an organization, you are henceforth bound towards doing your duty until the contract expires. However, some people fail to see this fact and that leads towards a crunching ache in the dynamics of the organization.
A person is failing in duty not only when he or she fails to produce, but also when he or she fails to balance her time to provide equity among the workload allocated towards all others within the hierarchy of the organization - from CEO to worker. There is an important role for each and every person in an organization to play. Once he or she fails to fit into that role, a change of dynamics is required, but whether that dynamic is leading towards a better or worse change, it depends more and more on that "black sheep" as time carries on.
Why? There is a stress factor. Unlike many other factors that affect the dynamic, stress has a unique "time-bomb" like manner. The manner of stress is that it builds up with time. It does not wash away the residue from yesterday, but instead builds on the left overs from yesterday. Of course, there are ways to reduce the further output of stress and also wash away the residue already present. Of course, there is the ultimate way of pulling the plug on the source of stress, which will equally present stress towards the workload. But that is easily dealt with, because there is no longer any sustenance towards the output of stress and the extra workload can be distributed equally among the other individuals of the organization.
A functioning individual seeks to do several things for the organization. One will compromise timing and schedule for the organization. The leader can be said to be dictating the time and premise for deadlines, but this is not for the needs of himself as an individual, but for the needs of the group for efficiency of results. Time allocation of individuals in an organization is crucial for interdependency. If one individual fails to meet schedules and deadlines, he or she is not functioning properly and thus must re-evaluate means of communication, organization and interdependency with the organization and all of it's units.
Secondly, there is a need for the individual to grow with the organization. One must be able to rectify faults and deficiencies of oneself. A failure to do so might dampen efforts of the organization to move on more efficiently. Growing meaning being knowledgeable about the conducts of the organization. Also, one must be able to follow the developments and changes required for issues that suddenly occur.
Thirdly, there is a need for the individual to be vigilant in commitment of duty. Vigilance means having sources to be able to rectify the faults of oneself. Just knowing is not enough, but one must take initiative to prevent oneself from becoming a nuisance and burden to the organization. One must find ways to rectify oneself. These rectifications must be done in an attitude of utmost urgency. A sense of urgency dictates one rectifies himself while carrying out one's duty for the organization. Last minute begging and extreme dependency of another unit to carry out one's duty is a liability. The liability exists in that one is not needed at the organization due to the fact that one mostly relies on results of other units.
Lacking in any criteria serves to reduce functionability of an individual. Lacking in all criteria makes you an asshole.
