Understand your manager’s intentions when assigning extra work and recognize that it may be a misguided way to reward great performers.

Summary

This article by Tracy Brower, writing for Fast Company, makes the following points:
  • Great performers make things look easy.
  • Many leaders see a great performer and overestimate what they can accomplish.
  • Remember that while too much work can feel terrible, it’s usually assigned with good intentions.
  • Some leaders may believe that a ‘quiet promotion’ will bring fulfilment and create more meaningful work.
