Every organization has problems between roles, departments, and silos.
Solving problems between adds tremendous value.
But problems between go unaddressed because they don’t belong to anyone. They are between.
Anyone can confront and address a problem between.
Doing so demonstrates personal responsibility beyond one’s accountability. Nurturing such personal leadership allows a culture of shared responsibility to emerge.

How could you approach the other and ask “Does this problem between frustrate you as it does me? Let’s team up and resolve it once and for all.”
How can you encourage and allow your charges to own problems between?
