Not exiteers


Have a team of any size for long enough and there will be people who lived up to and move past your hopes and desires. They’ll hit more runs and knock more balls over the fences than you had a right to expect, and they’ll do it with a smile on their face and joy in their heart.

Then there are the few who never quite measured up. They moved on, either on their own when they saw the standards they were expected to meet, or with a little help when they failed to notice those standards.

Then there’s everyone else. Not superstars, not exiteers. On a curve that runs from good enough to pretty good. The doers who do what they’re asked to do, do what they say they’ll do, do it reliably and with energy and care.

Skippy strategy: Reliability, energy and care are foundations of key workers.
