Remember that the hat sets the context when interacting with others
-If you change hats, keep in mind that the context changes. The goal often determines the role and the approach to take.
Don’t use one hat to accomplish a task required for another hat
-Take the time to cultivate each working relationship on its own terms, and acts accordingly, it’s often the a balancing act
When you change hats, don’t change your personality
-your attitude and behaviour should be consistent and predictable with everyone. Otherwise, you won’t be trustworthy in the eyes of anyone you work with.
Don’t neglect any hat you are responsible to wear
-The key to taking on the multi-hat challenge is knowing what hat to put on at anytime and enjoying the challenge it offers. They need to be able to turn on a dime or change hats at a moment’s notice.
