How many times have you heard the question, “What’s the next step?”
When working on a new project your answer, more importantly your action, is all about leadership.
A leader steps up when a project kicks off. This is what leaders do: they love to get in the arena.
During project execution, a leader steps aside, recognizing each team members' subject matter expertise and supports that team member’s role in creating project success.
And finally, after a project is successfully delivered, a leader steps back. Project success is never the result of a single team member; although often the project leader is the one recognized. Leaders step back and know teamwork makes the dream work.
Leaders, which way are you stepping?
