If you are prone to leading, what happens when you are put in a group comprised entirely of leaders? I’m going to find out!
Yesterday I met with a project team from the Emerging Leaders Institute (an initiative of Leadership Fairfax). The seven member team has a variety of skill sets they bring to the table. Together, this group will tackle a community service project over the next 8 months. Considering their talent and energy, I bet they can achieve more than anyone expects at the outset.
Oh, and my role – - to sit quietly as a facilitator, making sure they remain on track. I’m not supposed to be a direct participant. Who knew being disengaged could be so much work? It took a lot of energy for me to remain in the background just listening.
So, here’s to the Red Team, and a successful experience. I wish them well.
