Who Gets The Credit?
Who cares? Turns out a lot of people.
So often, we set it up that way (contracts, incentives, scorecards, KPI’s etc).
When competing for credit becomes more important than competing for the outcome you have a problem.
Competition for the credit can be a barrier to collaboration, innovation, trust, teamwork and performance.
Stockpiling credit was a way for managers to hide. Pretty easy to spot. Killer to morale.
In a more transparent time where talent trumps tenure or title that increasingly won’t work.
Of course credit counts. But what if the credit score mattered less?
What if all that really mattered was the result we achieved together?
