I spent nearly 24 hours straight in front my computer, with other executives, coaches, facilitators, trainers, consultants, at The Big One PLAY24H, an insightful unconference.
A comment surprised me, then led to clarity. Around 3am, an informal conversation I initiated on ways to help change enablers and senior executives understand each other, and work together better, inspired this comment:
“Oh, executives! I just throw them a bone, to get them busy while we do the work”.
A boast, maybe? A jest, hopefully.
Many, sadly, say it seriously, and act accordingly.
Some care a lot. They tried hard, faced frictions, frustration. Now, they choose isolation, and grow beautiful, tiny oases in the desert.
A few need sides, good and evil, buddies and enemies.
And we’re all short-sighted.
Beyond a small ring of clarity, we quickly get foggy.
My role is to help everyone get past these challenges:
Help people meet, in the middle, or on either side.
Help the bold cross over and the hesitant share.
Help people hear what they can’t see, and gain in clarity.
Help people work together, and support one another.
Don’t throw bones. 𝗧𝗵𝗿𝗼𝘄 𝗯𝗿𝗶𝗱𝗴𝗲𝘀.
