“Grab him ! He’s got Initiative.”. How many times have you heard people say this when they are looking for talent for their teams? “What I look for most in my staff ” a CEO once told me ” is that they have plenty of initiative”.
As we kept chatting, it struck me that here was a recurring theme. A song I had heard many times before. This was something all leaders would appreciate in their team members – initiative. The ability to do things on their own without having to be told. They are the self- starters. They save you valuable supervisory time and effort.
