Process people


Very few of us are process people.

The kind who set to, who work through, who won’t let go until the job gets done, have labelled boxes in the garage and never stop at “good enough.”

They’re tenacious (obsessive), detailed (pedantic), thorough (slower than you’d like). They get into things (some you’d rather they didn’t), never stop (they’re probably still working on it, right now), and can be head-shakingly difficult (wonderful) to work with.

Process people can find it difficult to see the big picture.

Big picture people can find it difficult to focus on the task at hand.

Whichever kind of leader you are, find the other and blend the flavours.

Skippy Strategy: The whole team shouldn’t be people like you. Add some people like them.
