Read something a few days ago that I can no longer find to reference. It got me thinking that we should celebrate those who get things done, not the ones who cast a vision or who are the appointed leaders. The ones who get things done are the ones we go to when we need help, when we have problems, when there are hard problems to solve. We don’t need a vision in those situations, we just need to get something done.
We need to be better at identifying these people in our organizations and honoring them in whatever fashion is appropriate. And we need to develop a sense of think about them, looking out for them and helping them get things done faster.
Maybe leaders should focus on getting obstacles out of the way of those who are getting things done?
Been gone for a while. Been busy, but aren’t we all? Wrote a bit about it over here.
