Saw this and thought of COO

Reading a quote from Steve Jobs I had one of those 'bolt of lightning' moments.  I recognised an articulation of the problem (and solution) I'd been struggling with for a while...
I'll paraphrase and apply to my situation now:

"There’s a lot of really talented people in this company who listened to others tell them they were losers for years, and some of them were on the verge of starting to believe it themselves. But they’re not losers. What they didn’t have was a good set of coaches, a good plan. A good senior management team. But they have that now"

These words describe perfectly my observations of the company I work within.  I see talent unmanaged, unloved and without a plan
Thank you Steve.  Now every time I look at my iPhone, MBP etc I'll also remember these words and hopefully they'll nudge me a little closer to being that coach, setting that plan and contributing to that team
