The workplace consists of 2 types of people
1. Drivers &
2. the Driven.( Not self driven)
These two types are not separated by roles or position titles. they are found in every corner of the workplace – every level , every role – you name it.
They seem to be anatomically differentiated by a simple On/Off switch inside their heads.
When they reach a certain fork on the road – one type chooses the “ON” switch the other goes for the “Off” switch.
And what is this fork?
When an assigned task is fully done and over with – one type asks the question – what is the next thing that i can do? Finds an answer and starts to work on that. The “ON” switch.
And guess what the other type does – well when they reach the same fork – they wait for the next set of instructions.
Which switch do you choose?
Too simple maybe?
