Why you shouldn’t be committed to your work

Changing Learning and Working

Do you need to be committed to your job and your profession? What if you work in a (multidisciplinary) teams, whose standards or work do you need to commit to? If your colleagues slack, because they are less committed to their job, can you do the same or should you put in your weight or do their job so that your team wouldn’t fail?

Commitment is made possible by identifying with our career but also with the group of people we have to work with. This can be our team, department, or organization. Our identity, who we think we are, is not only personal, but part of it is also taken from social groups we identify with. Part of who I am is influenced by my German heritage and my career as a researcher. These social identities become meshed with our personal identity and make us who we are.
