This article by Tracy Brower, writing for Fast Company, makes the following points:

- 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.
