October 17, 2011 - Do you consider yourself a leader, a manager, or a taskmaster? If you consider yourself a leader, but are not seeing the progress you hoped to see, could it be that you need a manager to organize and taskmaster to help you progress some of the details forward towards your vision? If you are a manager but feeling frustrated by the endless hassles and conflicts, could a leader be a mentor to help you approach things from a different perspective or could a taskmaster put some processes and procedures into place to alleviate some of these challenges? If you are a taskmaster feeling caught in activity that feels repetitive and unrewarding, could you reach out to your manager for more challenging assignments or seek leaders in your workplace to offer more insight to the value of the work you are doing?
Take an MM&I Moment to reflect on the scenario above that sounds most like you. Then reach out to the leader, taskmaster or manager you need to help you with your challenge, frustration or progress. The reality is that we cannot get where we ultimately want to go without realizing the value and contribution that those with different skill-sets and strengths can bring to our spheres. Once we understand this, not only does our work become more gratifying, it also becomes more interesting and engaging to others as well.
