In our Facilitative Leadership Program (FLP), we spend a great deal of time discussing roles and role descriptions. We believe that the purpose of Role Description is to learn how to perform the role better today than yesterday, on your way to the goal of becoming not only competent, but a virtuoso, in the role you play.
There are many facets to becoming a virtuoso in your role. Arguably, the most important is passion and purpose for your role, team, and company. Passion and purpose, or lack thereof, manifests itself in how engaged a person is in their job.
