80/365 – “What makes you feel supported?”
For the last few weeks, I’ve been assembling a small but powerful dream team to work on a brand-new campaign with Greenpeace.
Although the project is complex, with tight deadlines, and even tighter budgets – everyone on the team is self-motivated. If someone has the ability to solve a problem, they do it- unprompted.
Not needing to push, pressure, or motivate others is always a tremendous relief. The feeling of someone else taking responsibility until a task or problem is solved frees up so much mental space and bandwidth for more creative thinking.
For me, being supported is knowing that a project or task is progressing without committing active brain cells. What about you?
