Want to Be an Invaluable Employee? Do This
Most people think this is what it means to be a good employee:
1. Working long hours
2. Following the rules
3. Not rocking the boat
They are wrong.
If every employee worked long hours, followed the rules, and stayed the course, we'd still be in the industrial era.
Good employees make an impact, cross the lines and drive change.
They do it by:
1. Focusing on delivering outcomes, not output, regardless of how many hours they work
2. Constantly looking for ways to improve and innovate, even if it means changing the rules or completely ignoring them
3. Rocking the boat, crossing the lines, and speaking up in order to solve problems, make better decisions and achieve the company's goals
