Being Competent At The Workplace

Being Competent At The Workplace

A new paper by a team of researchers from Duke University, University of Georgia, and University of Colorado looks at not only how extremely competent people are treated by their co-workers and peers, but how those people feel when, at crucial moments, everyone turns to them.

They find that responsible employees are not terribly pleased about this dynamic either.

A separate experiment found that not only go-getters get more tasks assigned,—but how much work it would take to get the job done always gets underestimated.

In our personal relationships, we should recognize that just because our high-ability partners can do something for us, doesn’t mean that we should let them.

The results from a survey of more than 400 employees show that high performers were not only aware that they were giving more at work—they rightly assumed that their managers and co-workers didn’t understand how hard it was for them, and thus felt unhappy about being given more tasks.

People ask high self-control people to do more for perfectly logical reasons—because they think that those who successfully demonstrate high (vs. low) self-control will perform better and accomplish more.
