- “Who wants to start?”
- “Any volunteers?”
- “We need to think outside the box. Do you have any ideas we can pursue?”
- “Who’s gonna drive innovation for our company?”
- “Did you see what they just did? Who’s heading up our response?”
- “I’m sure glad he’s running with that project. I wouldn’t get anywhere near that thing!”
- “Who’s next?”
- “You’re kidding me! She’s leading our brainstorming session?”
- “I sure hope they figure this thing out. We need answers and we need them fast!”
- “I can’t believe we’re doing this. Who came up with this idea?”
- “They’re idiots to think this will matter.”
It’s easy to hide. Easy to complain. Easy to snipe from a distance.
It’s easiest to let someone else.
The hard thing is stepping up.
Choosing to lead.
Turning “anyone but me” into “why not me” is the first step…and the hardest one of all.
