During one of our meetings recently, a director asked us whether we had organized meals for everyone. We hadn’t. We tried to explain that last time when we began organizing meals we were informed that we would not have a meal during that meeting. The director explained to us that just because we didn’t have a meal during that meeting, it didn’t mean we would no longer have meals.
As an independent third party, give your opinion on who is to blame.
In the business environment, we often spend tremendous amounts of time trying to find who to blame instead of just trying to find a solution. Most times it doesn’t matter who is to blame. It doesn’t matter who dropped the ball. What matters is who is willing to pick up the ball and keep the ball rolling? Who is willing to say, we hadn’t planned for food before, but we will organize it now.
Next time you find people trying to waste time looking for who to blame, promise me you will decide to be the one who gets the ball rolling.
