Scope and Influence

November 20th, 2017 · No Comments

Regardless of the size and scope of an organization, we all have to opportunity to learn from and pass along learnings to the few persons we meet each day. Naive? Perhaps, but worth a try.

I currently work for an organization that has over 100,000 persons in it. Of course that size and scope is too large for anyone to manage effectively. Of course there is duplication and ignorance and all sorts of inefficiencies everywhere. And I am happy that I am not “at the top” trying to fix this.

So now what?

Back to basics. I meet a few persons face-to-face on any given day. I have the opportunity to influence those in a positive manner. And, what is more important, I have the opportunity to learn from each of those persons.

One of the best things I can pass along is the previous paragraph. I think this is one way to create a learning and influencing organization—even one that has over 100,000 persons. Who needs to be “at the top.”
