How do you get things done?
As in: How do you advance your agenda? How do you work with others to implement change? How do you deliver the project?
The answers reveal your theory of change, your beliefs about how change happens.
Those beliefs guide your actions.
Actions lead to outcomes.
Outcome + outcome + outcome + outcome ... leads to the change we're all after.
