MSL Teamwork: Thinking Outside the Box

You know how we’re constantly talking up the need to “Think Outside the Box”?

The only way anyone gets to “think outside the box” is when:

  • we have people who define the box,
  • we have people who support the box and are willing to work “inside the box”.

Don’t diss, or dismiss those who work primarily inside the box.

MSL managers: these are often your most reliable work horses who quietly keeps producing.

Medical science liaisons: these are often your most supportive coworkers who let you outshine them.

Let’s recognize the MSL team members who are low key, ready with a supportive word and a knowing smile, and who embody quiet confidence even as the rising stars exude big hairy ambition.
