Organization means different things to different people. If I want to know exactly where people are and what they are doing, I need organization. If I am a creative, and I want to keep track of where I am on various projects to keep myself or my superior happy, I need organization. If I am a home hobbyist who likes to work on many projects and needs many items to do so, I am more comfortable when I do not have to search the whole house for those items. I need some organization.
Sometimes in the quest for organization, especially in business, those seeking such tend to run rough shot over everybody else. The hierarchy wants what they want when they want it. And when they have a fear they may not be able to get it, micromanagement ensues.
Unfortunately, micromanagement is the one real death toll of imagination and creativity. Those who are creative need two things. They need to know the schedule, and they need the elbow room, which allows creativity to flourish. By hiding one or the other from a creative, their best work will never see the light of day.
Working, in general, is a cross between magic and a balancing act. To get your best work out, you need to look at each situation and find the magic point at which everything balances. When you take the time to do that, your chances of success are improved, and your leadership is undeniable. Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again soon.
