We generally care about the guys who are clever or brilliant, who get the things done in an efficient manner, who could make any difference.
But as the time goes on, many of those guys who are able to work like this, attain pride, quirks and even obnoxious qualities.
They might demand unusual benefits or great holiday trip or show up late.
We often digest this, because, after all they are super stars. Ain’t I right?
Somewhere and somehow there is a confusion regarding these signals with the work.
Those guys who start with the bad behavior and obnoxious qualities can think like it would be seen as a sign of talent. And they often get away with it.
“Who is that?”, we wonder..”I don’t know, but they must be good at what their skills, otherwise why do we keep continuing them at work?”
It could be a great plan if it works, but do you think it is a great strategy to be counted on?
But how many of them understand that they obtained that good reputation of being brilliant just because they are brilliant but not for their behavior!!!
