8 Qualities of Remarkable Employees

Can you identify the qualities of a remarkable employee? Is it someone who does their job description exactly or who ignores it? Is it a person who only speaks for themselves or makes sure everyone's concerns are voiced? Jeff Haden writes this article for Inc. detailing the 8 qualities that make for a remarkable employee. One of the most striking qualities is that of “fiddling”: Some people are rarely satisfied (I mean that in a good way) and are constantly tinkering with something: Reworking a timeline, adjusting a process, tweaking a workflow. Great employees follow processes. Remarkable employees find ways to make those processes even better, not only because they are expected to, but because they just can't help it. Other qualities include eccentricity (which they can dial back when the need for a united front is required), public praise and private complaining, and having a drive to “prove others wrong” by exceeding expectations.
