Management 3: Which kind of person are you?

There are several types of people:

  1. People who don’t see a problem
  2. People who see a problem but don’t do anything
  3. People who see a problem and propose a solution
  4. People who see a problem and propose the right solution
  5. People who see a problem, propose the right solution, convince others, and follow the idea through to completion
  6. People who see the most important problem, propose the best solution, convince others, and follow the idea through to completion

Getting to #6 takes time, effort and persistence.  It’s easy to say “I saw that problem” after the fact, or “I brought it up but nobody listened”  It’s not easy to do something about it.

It’s ok to say “I see a problem but don’t know the right solution yet”  You don’t get to #6 in a vacuum.  But an inspiring leader is able to focus their energy, identify where best to focus, and move others to their vision.  Which type of person are you?
