Don’t be a Passenger

In business, there are two types of people: the drivers and the passengers. Drivers are the folks who seize initiative, spotting problems and creating value for the company. Passengers are the people who are content to just come along for the ride. 

You can guess which type of person is more valuable to a company. 

If you’ve been coasting along in the passenger role, it’s time to take the wheel. When you see a problem, try to tackle it yourself. If you’re in a leadership position, your job is to be able to spot the difference between the two types of employees. Drivers have high standards and ambition, and they should be nurtured and promoted. Passengers probably need a pep talk…or it may be time to let them go.
