What Is an Integrator?

Over the past couple of years, I have been building my skills around being an Integrator.  I came across the term through a company by the name of EOS®, and until then it was a foreign name and concept to me.  Lately, though, I’ve seen a lot of articles on it, and this one from the Harvard Business Review is a great example. Here is a basic job description that can answer the question "what is an integrator?"A Great Integrator Is Someone Who:

  • Is a natural leader.
  • Puts the greater good of the company above all else.
  • Is comfortable being uncomfortable.
  • Deals in facts and data, not emotions.
  • Sees the big picture and understands how every move impacts the other.
  • Elevates and delegates to the executive team like the maestro of a symphony.
  • Is confident but humble.
  • Is pragmatic.

You might be thinking, “My company is just fine, there is nothing that needs to be improved, “ or perhaps you like the idea of hiring an Integrator but you don’t want to be questioned or believe it will be too expensive.  Remember, hiring a true Integrator can and will have a significant beneficial impact on your business.
