Situational Leadership II

It was noted in class that of the four types of tasks, there is one that works two different ways. The individual with much knowledge, but little motivation. You may be R3 developmental as regards a task - meaning that you're just worried about your capabilities, even though they're there. You may be R3 regressive as regards a task, meaning you've done it so many times, or don't see the benefit to yourself, so you're not interested in doing it, or doing it "one more time."

One archetype suggested for an R3 was Lance Armstrong, which led me to realize that I may be the Lance Armstrong of my project. No, I don't have only one testicle...I meant there's an appropriate metaphor.
