An example


When it comes to our team, we’re used to doing what we like and getting what we want. If we think it’s a good idea to have the meeting today, or tomorrow, or next Tuesday, that what we get. If we want to break off at short notice, reprioritise at the last minute, jump from subject to subject or project to project, we probably have a a good reason and we just get on with it.

And all the time, we set an example. At least some of the team will follow our model.

And all that time, we leave people in our wake. At least some of the team will get frustrated.

And both of those things might be ok, but probably not. The answer, make active choices. Think before you bounce, and think about explaining why too.

Skippy strategy: Set the example you want, bring your people with you.
