The Quiet Quitting Issue: Understanding People Vol. 007


"Quiet quitting" has been all over the internet lately. For those who haven't seen it yet, here's how an article by NPR described it:


 "Quiet quitting doesn't actually involve quitting. Instead, it has been deemed a response to hustle culture and burnout; employees are "quitting" going above and beyond and declining to do tasks they are not being paid for."


[Speaking of hustle culture...if you didn't catch iet, the Anti-Hustle Issue can be read here.


There's a lot of interesting discussion going around, but you you won't find any of those articles here. What you find is a fun twist on the idea with the Quietly Quitting: Enneagram Edition.
