Checkers or Chess?

If your role as a Manager was a board game, which one would it be?

Does your team perform routine tasks, and all have the same skills, abilities and motivation?  Then, perhaps, it's checkers.

Does your team have varied abilities, special talents or 'moves' and requirements?  Do you play the long game? Are you more strategic? Then, you might be best honing your chess skills.

Take a new look at your team today and evaluate your players strategically.  

Tip: Instead of being frustrated with the castle, see if you can't utilize their special talents more effectively.
