You may wish to think about why this is the case and if you feel that this approach meets the demands of modern organisations. Many companies increasingly want employees to think for themselves and to be confident about taking on additional responsibility. 11-25 Most of the time you comply with the organisation but you may not feel completely comfortable with this. You may wish to explore the boundaries of what the organization actually expect of you and how your direct supervisor reacts to constructive comments. 26-40 You actively challenge your organisation when you consider it appropriate. You may want to think about when you make this decision and how far you would go if the organisation continued to ignore your comments. 41-50 You may feel the organization and you are continually at loggerheads and you are surrounded by poor, unethical workers. You may wish to think why this is the case and what the best option to help you achieve greater satisfaction in your work.
