Leaders And Individual Contributors

Success looks different for each person—as does fulfillment.

  • Organizations usually put so much weight and focus on the need to grow into a leader that they're failing to see that individual contributors often lack a unique plan to help them forge their path to success.
  • Making sure your individual contributors are heard and seen is vital. Leaders are great for seeing the big picture and creating a strategy, while your individual contributors are great at understanding the mechanics and nuances within the strategy.

Career

The Secret Sauce: Motivation

Successful and rising entrepreneurs have a key behavior trait that propels them towards their goals: Motivation towards that goal, the constant fixation in their minds to what they want to achieve.

Focusing on your skills

You will stand out in some specific skills and tasks. Those are the skills others pay for and where you add the most value.

But you probably don't spend that much time using your skills because you try to do everything else by yourself. You may know that you should delegate more, but it's just too difficult to do.

The nature of the human judgment

People are not accustomed to thinking hard. They are often satisfied with a plausible answer that comes quickly to mind.

The prospect theory - the empirical exploration of risk assessment, loss aversion, and reference dependence, explains why people consistently behave in ways that traditional economic theory could not predict.

Elon Musk's management rules
  • No large meetings unless they're of value to everyone.
  • Don't have frequent meetings unless the matter is truly urgent. 
  • If you are not adding value to a meeting, walk out.
  • Don't use acronyms and nonsense words for objects, software, or processes.
  • Avoid any terms that require an explanation - they inhibit communication.
  • Communicate directly with individuals rather than through a chain of command.
  • Don't follow any "company rule" that doesn't make common sense.
  • Ideas that increase productivity or happiness are always welcome.
  • Never do anything that would make a great Dilbert cartoon.
  1. Build positive relationships: Pat people on the back more than kicking them in the pants;
  2. Tell people they matter by being prepared when they show up
  3. Choose an effective location - a neutral space or take a walk.
  4. Stay open: Prepare, but don’t script everything you plan to say.
  5. Get to the point quickly.
  6. Turn to the future quickly: State the issue, give an example, declare your positive intention for them and ask, “How might you improve in this area?”
Visibility As A Valuable Remote Work Skill

Visibility at work is when you are included, recognized, and valued by networks within your organization. Its how you get credit for your work, get considered for advancement and build influence.

Visibility is also necessary for teams. Research points out that remote team members who don't feel "seen" are less collaborative, innovative, and supportive of each other. Remote teams can face isolation from company culture, lack of face time with management, fewer informal networking opportunities, time zones, and technological problems.

Total commitment to your cause

Martin Luther King was a visionary leader who had a dream much larger than the times in which he lived.

King led a social movement of equality during a period where he wasn't supported by most. Although his life was threatened and despised by many, he stayed committed to his vision.

SpaceX

On May 30, 2020 the private company SpaceX launched astronauts to the International Space Station. This is said to be not only a huge step for the humanity, but also a sign that USA has become able to transport its astronauts to space without Russians' help.

For decades, only white property holders would have the right to vote in the United States. Moreover, some states even made sure that only Christian men had this vote.
