Inexperienced! If there is a qualifier O how devaluing, it is this one! It is surprising to hear or see that we can position individuals in such a negative way, on the pretext that they would not be endowed with the "indispensable experience", of this experience on which we will rely for "Trust" or "assign responsibilities"!
The latest events in France: renewal of political staff, via a president never from elected positions, the creation of a list of candidates, from civil society, never faced with elective responsibilities is likely to question the concept- even inexperienced.
Indeed, let's stop, Let's stop for a moment on this subject which concerns millions and millions of individuals, often young, newly arrived in professional life, politics. It would appear that being new to a territory, a job, an activity makes us inexperienced!
Perhaps ! Surely even! Unquestionably! Easily demonstrable! So let's accept this prerequisite. Let's take this classification as appropriate. Yes, some can be described as inexperienced.
But is this a defect? A weakness ?
If, on the contrary, the presence of inexperienced people, the recourse to lack of experience, constituted an opportunity to which we would be wrong not to pay all the attention it deserves.
Whereas if we took inexperienced people for what they are, to know nothing of any experience, could we not open ourselves to new ways, new solutions to the major challenges we face and, above all, to face did not find any solutions? By resorting almost systematically to experience!
It would be relevant to ask the question, what is an experienced? How does he behave in a specific way? Does not an inexperienced person tend to act or think like an explorer, a pioneer of new ways? Will his lack of experience not push him to go to unexplored ways, to clear? Will he not try to mix together what he saw and what was never attempted?
And if we pave the way for new "inexperiences", virgins of prerequisites, behaving like explorers of solutions, that we mix with experienced people by making it clear that they are recognized as "of public utility Or "of general interest" because of their inexperience, which they must keep as long as possible.
In order to help them progress, to fulfill the assigned tasks, it would be essential to recommend the following instructions:
- Clearly confirm the purpose of the objectives they pursue
- Sequencing their approach, step by step, and evaluating at each stage the evolution of the subjects we faced them.
- In doing so, we will be able to appreciate the new paths and paths they initiate, so that they will train others on new opportunities for thought and action.
Thus, the inexperienced will become de facto bearers of experience.
Imagine that this current takes strength. Anticipating a different future, we would probably be able to read:
- "Innovative enterprise, seeking new resources for research development Inexperienced cadre to clear unexplored tracks. "
- "Candidate for the deputation in your constituency, I am without any political experience. On the other hand, my program explores new ways in which we will find original development projects in our region. "
- "Young engineer, recently graduated, with no experience, would be willing to discuss with you research and development paths never used. "
But what would confirm the most interest of this current of "inexperience" would probably be the imaginary testimony of this entrepreneur: "Our company has stagnated for several years, we are no longer growing, despite the involvement of all to innovate and conquer new markets, not significant effects. We had in the past evolved by applying almost perfect parity at all levels, we hired people from various backgrounds. The effects were real, then faded over time. So, the idea came to us to clear new horizons, to work with new rules. We hired people without experience. With the mission to provide us with ideas and action plan not yet applied. Everyone is attentive to their contributions. And there, the effects were not slow to come, the company crossed a course, we went towards horizons that we did not imagine. And the growth curve has come back. "
Admittedly, we will call this "testimony" idyllic, but finally, why not dream a little.
What if we tried inexperience? To see!
