“On your team but not on your payroll”
Sounds good, but what does it mean?
It is very useful for leaders to be able to share their responsibilities' and pressures with an uninvolved , understanding, neutral colleague who is not part of the day-to-day running of the business. One who nevertheless quickly understands the situation and associated problems, particularly when it is very likely that your temporary colleague has been faced with similar challenges.
"I would like an honest and unbiased opinion"
"Can I bounce this idea off you?"
"Tell me what you think before I present this to the board"
"I could do with some support at this meeting"
"Does this make sense to you?"
"How do you think that went?"
"How can I resolve the problem between them when they see me as being involved?"
"It would be helpful to get an outsiders opinion"
"Do you think this will fly?""
"They may respond to you, you don't have any baggage"
Decision makers, planners, trainers, negotiators, managers, directors, presidents all have a common full time partner - it's called 'responsibility' that comes with varying degrees of stress.
I'm your part time partner, with peer to peer understanding and support for a few hours, a few days or weeks according to your needs. You only pay me when I'm there for you.
