Sample text

But it struck me as a powerful statement about how people in the workplace delude themselves about their achievements and their careers. We all think we’re performing like bears. But much of the time we’re more like salmon. As a manager who’s overseen hundreds of performance reviews in my time, I’m always amazed at the blind spots people reveal when they evaluate themselves. What amazes me is the predictability of the exercise. When it comes to themselves, people tend to: A overestimate their contribution to a project; take credit (partial or complete) for successes that truly belong to someone else; • have an elevated opinion of their professional skills or their standing within the company; • conveniently ignore their costly failures or time-consuming deadends; • exaggerate a project’s impact on our company’s net profits because they don’t appreciate the hidden (yet very real) costs of operating a business.

In the not-too-distant past, executives had someone in their hip pockets because of some personal tie. They were neighbors or played golf together or went to the same school. Today’s relationships demand more substance. Excelling at talents 1 and 2 is not a bad place to start. ❚ Your Job Is Just Another Project ❚ he incredible mobility of young executives in the workplace proves that there is a large cohort of people out there who no longer view their jobs as a long-term, once-in-a-lifetime commitment.

People in our company often approach me to say there are other areas where they feel their particular talents would be useful. An accountant who handles a golf client’s taxes might want to get more involved in the golfer’s business affairs, to the point where the accountant thinks he should be managing golf clients. An attorney who’s spent months writing a complex licensing contract, talking to the other side daily and in the process becoming an expert on the subject, might get the notion that he should be going around the world drumming up licensing deals.
