This week a breather from mentoring. Mostly because I need to reflect on its ups and downs.
We recently welcomed Hannah to our team. Hannah’s role is an invaluable one. She our shiny new administrator. Just two days a week and I can feel the difference already. In a tiny organisation you can’t afford a full-time CEO let alone a range of vital back-office functions.
I have fought shy of taking these steps for financial as well as control reasons. Over the years I’ve endeavoured to systematise and batch tasks as far as possible. But ultimately, just as having the right team is vital, so is having the right people doing the right jobs.
The right people on the bus and in the right seats makes us all more productive. I knew this in the abstract and am now starting to feel it too!
And she’s another talented artist!
