So I want self-determination and accountability. No doubt about that.
But, if you don’t hand over the work to me, if you stay involved with the customer, making decisions and plans and then feeding me the decided-upon actions after the fact, well then don’t expect me to be too helpful and engaged.
Extract yourself Mr Salesman. Focus on the sales and give me the project to run.
Otherwise, don’t come crying to me when things go south and I’m not so keen to step in and assist you clean up the mess.
