We started off this episode thinking we were going to talk about the education system but then we got into some great stuff about job seeking, recruiting and hiring so we bagged the education talk. We’ll get there in a future episode. Here are the highlights from this episode:
– Years of experience vs. ability to do the job
– Resumes and job sites are part of a system of “not considering you” for the most part
– Companies say they want the best but then they usually don’t treat them like they are the best.
– Just because it’s not your reality doesn’t mean it’s not realistic. – AT
– Some people feel sick when they have to go to work…there’s a better way. – JR
– Linchpins are sometimes hard to employ because they don’t settle.
– People leave companies quickly because they often get suckered into it. What they told me I could do I’m not doing. – JR
– Change within companies is rarely quick because change usually comes one person at a time. Companies hire people who are just like themselves because it’s easier, just not as productive. – JR
– Linchpins love what they do because it helps themselves but more so because it helps others.
– Linchpin thinking should not be arrogant, it is simply giving yourself permission to succeed at what you were meant to contribute. – AT
“This is your opportunity. The indispensable employee brings humanity and connection and art to her organization. She is the key player, the one who’s difficult to live without, the person you can build something around.” – Page 9 of Linchpin
