They’ll be back
Posted by Amy Wilson on November 23, 2010
I’ve had the fortunate experience of managing many talented people in my career. People who surprised me with what they could do that I couldn’t. People who got things done in the toughest of situations. People who brightened my day with new ideas. People whose strengths I learned and benefited from. And then they’d move on. Or I would. And, we’d be a little sad. But not for long.
Because they never really leave – those talented people you know so well. They become collaborators in different departments. They become advocates of a shared vision. They make the company more successful or the industry more viable. And because you know them so well – what they can do, what they care about, what makes them tick – they will listen when you have an opportunity to work together again. And it will be good, because you know it will.
