Ed Muzio, CEO of Group Harmonics

You’ve got the title, the corner office and the perks. But most of all, you’ve got a realistic picture of the job: to be an executive or senior leader is to be the person with whom the buck stops. Small, isolated problems arise and are solved all over the place, but when things go systemically wrong with customers, suppliers, employees or shareholders, you’re on the hook. You take that responsibility seriously and do your best to run an organization that acts intelligently and proactively in the best interest of those stakeholders -- to steer your ship to the deepest, clearest waters.

There is one activity in every company that:

  • Impacts every employee,
  • Consumes 30% of employees’ time on average, and up to 80% of an executives’ day,
  • Drives the success or failure of all collaborative work.

This is an enormous investment. And yet, most companies provide zero training and have no systems in place to ensure a return on all this time.

Yes, it’s meetings.

At some point in your career, you’re going to find yourself leading a team, department, division, or organization where you’re working with an employee who irritates you. Sometimes you know why. Often you don’t.

Amy Radin, Author, The Change Maker’s Playbook: How to Seek, Seed and Scale Innovation In Any Company

Hard work, persistence, passion, and resourcefulness propel change makers forward. But so does the ability to spot and support other changemakers to join forces with you – to attract them to your organization, and then to help them succeed.

You may be a doer of many things, but you are also a leader, coach, and orchestra conductor as you assemble the team to advance the innovations delivering value to users and growth to your enterprise.
