    Lattice Work: Building Structures That Support Strong Cultures

    Posted by Steve Black on Jun 18, 2019 9:51:35 AM

    In my front yard, a beautiful flowering vine grows. Each spring, it peaks out of the ground and within weeks, it covers a section of a flowerbed. Unfortunately, without proper direction and intentional scaffolding, it overshadows other plants, which experience stunted growth and premature death.

I used to believe my role was just entry level, that I should look for a way to move out of my role and into a new one quickly, and enjoying what I do must somehow be…wrong. Then I started to wonder, what if I stopped defining my career path as an administrative professional by their logic? What if I decided to own the fact that I'm good at what I do, I enjoy what I do, and I see the value and impact I have on my team?
