Be The Fixer (Not The Finder)

A little career advice from Patty McCord:

Be the fixer, not the finder.

Don’t just say, “This is screwed up.” Or, “Why does this suck?” Or, “Do we have to?”

Fix it. Don’t just come with a problem, come with a problem and a solution.

“That IS screwed up, but let’s try this.”

“We can make it suck less if we just ______.”

“We don’t actually have to do it that way, what about…”

Finders invite value creation. Fixers actually create it.
