Lessons on Power #7

“I believe, within my context, that to see real reform, you need to get into the belly of the beast. I struggle to convince capable, qualified young people to work in the public sector as they feel there is no upward mobility, there is too much backstabbing, remuneration is low, and they aren’t taken seriously. The bad news is that there is indeed a price to pay to occupy the public space. The good news is that you can be the change you want to see. The only caution is that you must constantly assess yourself to determine whether you are changing the system or if the system is changing you. It’s important not to become so blinded by proximity and power that you can’t see when something is going very wrong. If you find yourself always angry, frustrated and in disagreement, then you need to self-introspect.” H.E Madame Monica Geingos
