Do you have a ‘go to’ person on your team?

Every team/group has a ‘go to’ person. You know…that person that you (and others) know you can count on to ‘get stuff done’.

You find yourself always relying on the one or two people on your team that can move a mountain but have you ever thought about what affect you might be having on that person (or people)?

Perhaps your ‘go to’ person loves playing the role but after a while they can get burnt out by carrying the load of the team.

Perhaps your ‘go to’ person is starting to wonder why the other team members aren’t asked to carry a similar workload.

Perhaps you should rethink how you use your ‘go to’ person to ensure that you still have a ‘go to’ person in the future.
