Inexperienced! If it is a qualifier Ô how devaluing, it is well this one! It is surprising to hear or see that we can thus 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 "" Trust "or" assign responsibility "!
The latest events in France: the renewal of the political staff, via a president who never emerged from elective office, the creation of a list of candidates from civil society, never confronted with elective responsibilities, is likely to question the concept- Even inexperienced.
Let us stop for a moment on this subject which concerns millions and millions of people, often young people, newly arrived in the professional, political life. It would appear that the fact of being new on a territory, a trade, an activity makes us inexperienced!
Perhaps ! Surely even! Unquestionably! Easily demonstrable! Let us accept this prerequisite. Let us take this classification as appropriate. Yes, some may 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 were to take inexperienced people for what they are, that is to say, untouched by experience, could we not open ourselves to new paths, new solutions to the major challenges that confront us and, above all, Have not found any solutions? By resorting almost systematic to the experience!
It would be relevant to ask the question, what is an experienced? How does it behave in a specific way? Does not an inexperienced man tend to act or think like an explorer, a clearing of new ways? Will not his lack of experience lead him to go to unexplored paths, to clear up? Will he not try to mix together what he has seen and what has never been attempted?
And if we open the door to new "inexperience", people prerequisite virgins, behaving like explorers of solutions, that we would mix with people of experience by specifying to them that they are recognized "of public utility Or "general interest" because of their inexperience, which they must keep as long as possible.
In order to help them progress, to fulfill the missions entrusted, it would be essential to recommend the following instructions to them:
- 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 is gaining strength. Looking forward to a different future, we would probably be able to read:
- "Innovative company, looking for new development resources Research Inexperienced cadre to clear up unexplored tracks. "
- "Candidate to the Deputation in your constituency, I am without any political experience. On the other hand, my program explores new avenues in which we will find original development projects in our region. "
- "Young engineer, recently graduated, with no experience, will be willing to discuss with you ways of research and development never used. "
But what would most confirm the interest of this current of "inexperience" would probably be the imaginary testimony of this entrepreneur: "Our company has been stagnant for several years, we no longer progress, despite the involvement of all in order to innovate and conquer new markets, effects not significant. We had in the past evolved by applying the almost perfect parity at all levels, we hired people from various backgrounds. The effects were real and then faded over time. So, the idea has come to clear new horizons, to work with new rules. We hired inexperienced people. Its mission is to supply us with ideas and action plans that have not yet been implemented. Everyone is attentive to their contributions. And then, the effects did not take long to come, the company crossed a course, we went to horizons that we did not imagine. And the growth curve came back. "
Certainly, this "testimony" could be called idyllic, but in the end, why not dream a little.
What if we tried inexperience? Just To see!
