Some People Are On the Back Seat

Sorry, but I don’t buy this “we’re all leaders” stuff. The job of HR, finance, IT, supply, etc, is to support the operational core of the business, because they are the ones getting the strategic results with the customers. That’s the core’s job. Sure, they can provide advice and influence decisions and culture, but they would be better leading themselves and their functions properly than giving advice to operators. Besides, if they want to be in charge of operations or strategic leaders in organizations, then they should transfer to the operational side, get the experience there, and answer for results.
