This attribute is one that frustrates most traditional managers. Corporate entrepreneurs will see something and try to explain it to others so we can improve a process, increase our value proposition or help another department.
Most times, when we do this, the people that can’t see what we are detailing, think we are off on another tangent, or don’t have enough information, or simply just ignore us because they have heard things like this from us before. Traditional managers like the status quo! They are great at killing these potentially great ideas. Don’t do the same in your company or department.
It is the corporate entrepreneurial leaders responsibility to figure out what you need to do in order to see and understand what others see. It is like the a chariot with two horses that have blinders on. You are the chariot driver and see the big picture and it is your corporate entrepreneurial leadership skills that will allow you to harness the power of your people to create efficiency, process improvement, great technology and more.
It is important to remember that sometime people have blinders on, sometime they are surrounded by a fog, sometime there is a screen that is blurring their vision and sometime they just have their head in the sand. Use the corporate entrepreneurial leadership platform and the philosophy of mutual benefit to bring the hidden into full view for those around you.
By the way…what is not obvious is that this flower is actually made of thin pieces of wood.
