Turn a bolt, tighten a screw. Are you a tool? Are you the driven, or the Driver?
I hope that was an easy question to answer. If you feel like a tool, start thinking about how you differentiate yourself through insightful contributions or exceptional execution. (Your view here probably has a lot to do with finding yourself in a job versus a career – FYI).
Just found – a new tool from Jim Collins, the man behind Good to Great. A handy little pdf’d questionaire to take his book into your organization as a diagnostic tool. Dig in, talk it through, and start to drive changes.
Don’t be just another tool.
