Ode to unsung heroes at IISC and beyond!May 21, 2012 Leave a comment
You’ve heard that “it takes a village to raise a child.” It also takes a village to make an IISC engagement happen. I want to raise up a shout out and express my grateful for the excellence with which our colleagues do the detailed behind-the-scenes work that makes IISC’s practice possible.
Here is a short, illustrative list of processes that move projects from idea or inquiry to a finished process and product: answering phones, scheduling meetings, matching consultants with projects, registering workshop participants, ordering materials, working with caterers, setting up and cleaning up after meals, tracking down expense reports, sending invoices, managing our website, logging information in our database, handling assorted technology problems. The list goes on and on.
Who are the unsung heroes in your work? When’s the last time you gave them a shout out?!
