Not On The Job Description

The job description is fine, but we all know a job description doesn’t make the grade when it comes to making an impact on learning.

Instead, it’s what’s not on the job description that counts. Things like:

  • Positive energy
  • Active listening to peers
  • Showing professional courtesy
  • Tact and poise
  • Empathy
  • Stepping up to tasks when others say, “That’s not my job!”

So while the average is built around a job description, greatness is built around outlier actions.

Go ahead, be great. You don’t need anyone’s permission.




PS – Yesterday’s post about networks reminds me of a new networking opportunity called #822Chat. It hasn’t started yet, but I’d like for you to see it before it begins. Let me know what you think!
