I had a couple of comments on my previous blog that made me think I might need to clarify…
No matter if you are on a team, or work alone, you always have customers, clients, or some one that you work with when you work. I can’t think of anyone that doesn’t encounter another person at some point in their work process… (at least that would read my blog).
So, there is always a need to be a well rounded, personable, and not a jack-leg when interacting. Sure you need to delegate things you CAN’T do well, but there is a rising culture of forgetfulness, and lack of follow through, that can’t be pushed off on your “weaknesses”
I also love the “freelance guy” that can come in and help organize, restructure, etc… esp since I do that for people. I am just saying that there are always people that you work with, and if you are a drag on them, then your relationship won’t last.
Follow through, commit – only if you can deliver, don’t be a drag!
If you have push back, PUSH. I want to hear it.
