With that experience, my view is that before deciding something a CEO or exec should be clear how he/she contributes to a project or work, using one of the following:
- Initiator: kicking off new projects
- Connector: connecting people to others so the work gets better
- Amplifier: amplifying the things that are working well or not so there is awareness of success and learning
- Editor: fixing or changing things while they are being done
Let’s look at each of these in a little more detail.
Very interesting and insightful article. The way you choose spend your time between all types of activity says a lot about you.
