Does anyone have a suggestion for a gender-neutral alternative to the phrase "Who's the go-to man?" The go-to person feels stylistically awkward.
"Go to man" can mean a few things. If you are looking for a 'better" way to say it that is not ambiguous, here are some examples that define it:
- The most knowledgeable person about something
- The person who gets (these/those) things done
- The single point of contact who has authority to do something
I am surprised that this hasn't been given but I hear captain used in almost every environment.
In sports the referees talk to the captain to discuss rulings. Teammates talk to the captains about concerns or issues.
Captain signifies there is a team but it could be debate team or a team in the workplace. I am begrudgingly a captain of our internal innovation team. Which means when someone has an idea they come to me first.
