Are you an owner?
On great teams, everyone has a stake: if things go great, you’re structured to benefit. If things don’t, there’s nothing to benefit from.
On teams like these, we have a choice:
- Be an owner: Where you Own your role, you Own the vision, and you fight for it come rain or shine.
- Or be like an ‘employee’: Where you check-in enough to keep the peace and leave the heavy-lifting for someone else.
We get to decide whether or not to be as indispensable as the man/woman who founded the tribe.
If we decide wrong, someone who decided right will most certainly take our place, if the team is indeed to be great.
So: are you an owner?
