If you have ever been a manager and managed team of people, you’ll identify with this…

Novice:  ants to be given a manual, told what to do, with no decisions possible

Advanced beginner: needs a bit of freedom, but is unable to quickly describe a hierarchy of which parts are more important than others

Competent: wants the ability to make plans, create routines and choose among activities

Proficient: The more freedom you offer, the more you expect, the more you’ll get

Expert: writes the manual, doesn’t follow it.
