Fly on the wall

Sometimes it’s nice to be a fly on the wall.

To observe, rather than talk.

To watch a team grow and develop their own style and processes.

This morning I randomly decided to walk into the conference room while one of our hyper-growth teams held a meeting on hiring. I thought it was great that nobody said a word, allowing me to sit quietly off to the side.

Then I was even more excited to hear about the myriad of exceptionally qualified candidates to help us expand into several new regions.

But what really impressed me was the team dynamic and how the various constituents evaluated the candidates.  They listened to each other, weighed the inputs and swiftly determined how to proceed.

In the end, I shared a few points for them to consider and we all went about our day.

This makes me proud.
