Dirty dancing.

Salam, good day. Hope you doing good and living a cheerful life! Firstly, my appologise if this posting sound harsh but it’s not, my appologise if hits you personally since it is just my humble opinions. Which one do you prefer, the workload given to you or something which is not related to your job but would destroy your career? It would destroy your image if not being handle carefully.
What meant destroy here doesn’t mean totally dismissed from the agency, but you are going to be less favourable. For me, I’m more than willing to accept the workload given to me rather than facing those dirty politics.
Of late or maybe for the past few months, the big guns around me has been acted like kids. Gossips, defame and provocations seems like a daily life for certain people. But one should be careful, ready to face the consequences should the truth revealed.
The keyword here is ‘communication’, when the way of spreading messages or telling story done in incorrect style, something bad would happen upon you. Communication is more than talking. It is an essential part of human life, to be exact office life. It is both talking in a manner in which others can understand you, and hearing in a manner in which you can listen and understand others. So many times people claim that they have no communication problem since they are always talking. However, the majority of the time they are talking "at" and not talking "to" the other person. This is resulting in the recipient or the 'not-listening' listener to tune out.
The truth in spreading messages would also changes it's way if there is accompany with a bit of cronyism, nepotisme as well as favouritism. Although different in words, but they are inter related.
This is where the head or a leader plays their part in order to ensure the workplace is free of defamation and only legitimate messages to be share. It ain’t easy being a leader, it ain’t easy!  

Dr. Iqbal Unus, IIIT and Dr. Rafik Beekun wrote: 
"...Leadership is about delegating authority, and a central principle of delegation is that authority must be delegated with appropriate resources,  i.e. the means to accomplish the task one has been delegated with. In the story of Dhul Qarnayn, we are reminded that Allah subhanahu wata’ala is the Sovereign. He delegates authority to us in different degrees. He delegates tasks to us, and accomplishes what He Wills through us. But He will not demand the accomplishment of a delegated task without giving us the proper resources to accomplish it. Allah the Almighty says that he established Dhul Qarnayn in the earth and gave him the means of everything, the resources and abilities that may be needed.  The other side of this coin is that Allah SWT does not demand from us what we do not have the ability to accomplish..."
Allah subhanahu wata'ala quoted in Surah al Baqarah:
"...On no soul does Allah place a burden greater than he can bear..."
So, in human terms, this is a lesson for us when we find ourselves in any position of leadership, that we expect the best from those we delegate tasks to, with two conditions: We do not expect more than we know they are capable of delivering, and we give them the material resources and the training needed to get the job done. 

One of the well known hadith of the Prophet is:
“...Everyone of you is a caretaker, and every caretaker is responsible for what he is caretaker of...”
Being a leader/caretaker, you should know how to handle organisation. Good governance is lead by a leader, a leader who is caring, listening and reacting but not twitting. For me, as a middle man it is best not to join the dirty dancing with them. However I’m happy to give my opinions when being ask and my prayer goes to people around me. Hope all comes good:)
