Brain is Body, Leader is Team - How are you connected to the group that you lead?
The brain is part of the body, the leader is part of the team.
The brain is not more important than the stomach. Without a stomach the body will also die, it just takes longer. Same for lungs, heart, neck, mouth, intestines, liver, and other important organs.
A leader isn’t more important than the other parts of the team, but she can and should have a big impact – on morale, on direction, on career path for other team members.
Are you the brain? What impact are you making today?
I work for Techtonic as the leader of the software delivery group. I am a Certified Scrum Product Owner.
