Simon says, “Take time to be sure people understand how their jobs fit in with other jobs and activities.”
Simon does not go overboard here; but he does obsessively attend to one element of fitting in. With Simon as your leader, you will always completely understand how what you do fits into the plan for the team to achieve its mission. You will know why you do what you do.
Simon will also be sure you see how your job fits with other jobs that affect or are affected by yours. Although you may not see every necessary connection, knowing why your job is important is essential to your success and to the success of the team. People want their efforts to make a positive difference; and Simon will make sure you do not doubt the value of your contribution.
