The Art Of Being Indispensable At Work By Bruce Tulgan

Some useful tips on how to operate and carry yourself in business.

RATING: 3.8/5




• Stop focusing on what other people can do for you and focus instead on what you can do for other people. Make yourself super valuable to others. The more value you add, the more truly invested others will become in your success.

• “When in doubt, do what’s right.” -US Army General, Norman Schwarzkopf

• Never compromise on ethics, even if nobody is looking. Act as if your reputation depends upon it (it does).

• You cannot do everything for everybody. Overpromising may please people up front, but if you fail to deliver, that’s all they will remember.

• Planning is the key to successful execution. Plan the work so you can work your plan.

• When you bring your best to the table, no matter where you are or what you are doing, you bring out the best in others. And soon, you start to realize, that, in turn, helps them bring out the best in you. That’s the upward spiral.

• If you treat somebody with disdain, you give that person a psychological incentive to diminish your opinion. Inversely, if you demonstrate understanding and appreciation of someone’s contribution, you create a psychological incentive in the individual to give greater weight to your opinion.
