Episode 126 – Not my monkey, not my circus

by | Communication, Company culture, Empowerment, Management, Podcast, Success

Dawn Shuler recounts an experience as Chief Operating Officer of an organization where various people would try to offload their ideas or problems onto her – or to others.  Her response: “Not my monkey, not my circus.  And when you leave my office, take your monkey with you.”

It’s a bit more complex than that.  We want to encourage people to bring us their ideas and solutions.  Better yet, is to empower them to take those ideas and solutions to the next level to actually see the light of day.
