As our organizations grow, we must shift. If we hold too long to the methods that got us here, we will strangle our organizations. So we move away from being a task-master focused on getting it all done and toward being an executive.
To be executives (with or without title), we
- Steward the creation and maintenance of a clear, compelling goal for the organization.
- Build a win-win-centered team capable of achieving that goal.
- Constantly inspire (authentically, not rah-rah) people; we show them where they fit and they contribute to that goal.
- Insert just enough structure and process to make things easier and to support that goal.
In your corner,
PS: We must evolve before the company can.
