You're On The Hook


It’s easy to look at an organization or culture or society made up of many people and moving parts and to point the finger at how it falls short. It’s not so easy to view yourself as an integral, influential piece of that organization or culture or society and to point the finger back at yourself. You are a leader -- an influential part of it -- whether you know it or not. Your family, your workplace, your team, your friend group, your neighborhood, your political party, your city, your country.

Of course, the next questions is: what can we do with this information?

The answer I hope you do not default to is, “look for ways to diminish my own responsibility to the result” or “point to those who have more responsibility so they may take the fall.”

Rather, ask, “what is in my control?” or “how can my influence improve this organization/culture/society?”

You’re on the hook, and that’s not a bad thing.
