Bell cow

Taught by John Fenske | Permalink | Tagged as , bell cow, leader, leadership, | Comments »

Originally, the cow in a herd with a bell on its neck. The noise of the bell makes the herd easier to find.
Some people interpret the bell as signifying a leadership role, and its use reflects that misunderstanding.

As in...
"Dave, I need you to be the bell cow on this one."

In action... overheard

Actually, this definition sucks. Let me add my own. You can also share "bell cow" with a friend or share it on Twitter.

Make sense? Let's discuss.
