We come across two tribes of people in the business world. The Do-ers who do what they say or agreed to do. And the Talk-ers, who do not.

We know where we are with the Do-ers. They like responsibility and are fulfilled by getting things done and pleasing us. Once we’ve delegated, it’s out of our head and into theirs. Organisations and relationships thrive with Do-ers.

Talkers say, with sincerity, `leave it with me` but quickly forget what it was we left. They pretend to make notes. They make excuses for letting us down and ask for deadlines to be extended, often more than once. In short, they over-promise and under-deliver. Organisations and relationships can be destroyed by the Talk-ers.
