Somewhat of an ode, just a deserved recognition – of the fact that in whatever area of the industry you work and however often you think you are going it alone – none of the success is possible without a team…..a really great team, behind you.
Don’t let yourself be fooled in to thinking that you are “all that”, there will be times when you have to call on the support of others, when they may not totally understand why you need them – and times they need you – to help them through the learning experiences you dealt with many years before.
And don’t think it will ever be an easy road. There may well be occasions when, having given your all in support of a cause, an individual, a product – a client….that the spotlight is still put on you in a way that leaves you asking why you bothered in the first place. Don’t misunderstand the nature of people can sometimes be to cover their own back when the shit hits the fan. Ultimately, and maybe not always for the better – as a leader you hope that it is during these tough times, when people reveal their true colours, that those colours match your own rather than clashing like a bad case of “getting dressed in the dark”.
This then is a shout out to those I call support – you, that girl opposite (you know who you are) and to those that I am surrounded by on a daily basis. Thank you
