In every organization, no matter how great or small, there is a person who is in charge of doing the things that no one else wants to do.
Sometimes, the organization imposes the title of “secretary” or “administrative assistant” on the person occupying this position and being accountable and responsible in it.
But in reality, the person who does the things that no one else wants to do, has the most power in an organization.
There are two positions in any organization that have power: The janitor and the CEO.
Both are invaluable and require that the person occupying those roles be a faithful steward of the position.
But no one else in the organization wants to change places with either one of those people.
This is probably why there is so much conflict over so little mediocrity stacked so deep in the middle.
