I had an interesting experience recently. I looked at the list of blog posts published and scheduled over the next few weeks, and noticed very few of them are mine. I wondered, when did that happen? When did I stop being the primary voice for Roundpeg? And, how did I feel about the transition?
As I thought about the questions, I realized the blog was actually a reflection of the very positive shift occurring at Roundpeg. I have an extremely talented team and each of them is maturing into their roles. As I spend more time out of the office, they have to do their jobs with limited direction, and they are stepping up to the challenges.
I am comfortable sending them to networking events to represent us, and Jay, Taylor, and soon Allison are becoming part of the well-recognized face of Roundpeg.
It is only natural for the transition to be reflected here. Just as with their assignments, we brainstorm ideas for blog posts, and I may edit or provide input on what they do, but the work is theirs.
How do I feel about that? After getting over the feeling of not being needed, I love it. I am free to sell more and take on more challenging projects, because we can handle it. Roundpeg is positioned for amazing growth this year and I am going to enjoy the ride, even if I am not always driving!
