Many times, a sense of entitlement is seen as a negative thing. What if you developed a sense of entitlement that allowed you to find fulfillment in your work? What would it look like? Your sense of entitlement would come from a commitment to give your best to your work by developing your skills, using your talents and maintaining high productivity for the betterment of your organization. In return you would be valued, treated with respect, challenged to grow and acknowledged. This way, the work gets done and everyone plays their part.
Any downside to this? I don’t think so. It corrects an imbalance in many organizations that undervalue people and corrects a negative sense of entitlement on the part of workers who are not giving their best. Everyone wins.
