Our role managers and leaders

“With the rise of the knowledge worker, one does not ‘manage’ people. The task is to lead people.

And the goal is to make productive the specific strengths and knowledge of every individual.”

Peter Drucker

Our Role: Managers and Leaders

No longer separate and distinct

Equal attention to efficiency, developing talent, and inspiring others

Mapping your personal goals
Mapping Your Personal Goals ‘manage’ people. The task is to lead people.

Current professional “bubble”: Where am I now? What is familiar and comfortable? What parts of my work come easily?

Exploration: What possibilities lie outside my bubble? Where is there potential for change in setting, reputation, abilities, relationships, etc.?

Destinations:Where do I want to end up? What change do I want to achieve by the end of 2014 (or beyond)?

Pathways Forward: How will I get to my destination? What specific action can I take this year?

Making it happen
Making It Happen ‘manage’ people. The task is to lead people.

  • Commit out loud to someone else

  • Keep thinking about the plan

  • Be intentional

  • Take a chance
