2. Point Me in the RIght Direction... you don't like getting bogged down in the detail just show me where we are going and I will figure out how to get there.
3. I am on it, Out of My Way... I get the concept and just let me at it, I may make a few mistakes but it will be A OK in the end.
BOLD ACTION: Name that next project you have waiting for you, think abut the three approaches above, which one feels more comfortable to you? Is that the way you have done projects in the past?
