This is a lovely read. Apart from the perspective to ‘take a break’, the other thing that resonated with me was the fact that truly exceptional people always share knowledge.
“ Yes, we should reward specialization. But we should also recognize the efforts to share and spread that knowledge. Instead of individual heroics, we should recognize those that develop others and elevate the collective capacity of the organization. Because while the contributions of a top performer will always be important, it’s the employee that develops others who is truly indispensable.”
This is so so true!
