Just because it is clear to the founding leaders, it's not necessarily clear to everyone else.

The visionary and operator are not interchangeable

Unfortunately, many visionaries replace themselves with operators. An operator can do a visionary job, however, they have to understand it's a different job with a different skill set.

The difference between a visionary and an operator is that one skill set is up and out and the other down and in.

The partnership between visionary and operator

Many CFOs or COs are considered the number two in the company and in line for the big position.Β 

However, what makes an organisation highly functional is

  2. the tension between the two ways of operating up-and-out and down-and-in.

How an organisation should function

You want a visionary person to do a visionary job, and the operator to do an operator job.

  • You should extract the purpose from the founder in terms that are compelling and resonant with everyone.
  • Build into your incentive structure performance and values so that the organisation is equipped to survive the founder leader if necessary.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
