Showing Up is not Enough

Showing Up
You have probably got that part nailed. Butt in seat, smile on your face. We often run into people who understand their job to be showing up on time to do the work that’s assigned to them. They are competent and present at their workstations and at meetings.

In the Start-up revolution, showing up is no longer enough. We have moved way beyond that now.

Showing up and taking notes is not your job. Your job is to surprise and delight and to change the agenda. Your job is to escalate, reset expectations and make us delighted that you are part of the team.

Thank you for showing up, now delight and escalate us.

Showing up is overrated. Necessary but not nearly sufficient.
