Proactive vs. Reactive
“Take a look at this assignment and create a solution.”
“Our client requested this, let’s open a project and do it.”
“The website is down, can you fix it?”
This is what a reactive environment looks like.
A proactive environment has two main questions: What should we do now? Why should we do it?
Figuring out what to do is an important step, it only comes up in a proactive environment, and it requires a completely different set of skills, perspectives and priorities.
