We all know who the office MVPs are; Managers come to depend on them and supply them with a steady stream of high profile assignments and new opportunities; their peers know who they are as well. Whether these professionals work on center stage or behind the scenes, managers know who the top players are and understand their worth. And while most people can see the difference in their value, not everyone understands what causes this difference. If they did, they could emulate it themselves or recruit more of these stellar contributors onto their teams. Researcher and bestselling author Liz Wiseman has brought together managers from top companies to discover what makes an MVP. Wiseman set out to answer three main questions: 1) Why do some people get tapped for the most important assignments while other equally smart, capable people struggle to be seen? 2) What are the most valuable players doing differently than their peers that make them so valuable to their organizations? and 3) Can others learn to think and operate like these MVPs? If so, could we raise the contribution level of an entire team? Wiseman discovered that MVPs are able to intuit the workplace rulebook, beyond what management literature can tell them. They anticipate the needs of their managers and they think and respond to problems in different and more positive ways than their peers do. They see obstacles as a chance to prove themselves and see unclear roles as an opportunity to provide leadership. There are five practices that help MVPs succeed: ---Do What’s Useful: When dealing with messy problems, MVPs address the real needs of the organization; they venture out from their assigned job to tackle the real job that needs to be done. ---Take The Lead: When something clearly needs to be done, but it's unclear who's in charge, the most valuable players step up and take the lead. ---Finish Strong: MVPs stick with projects through completion. ---Ask and Adjust: MVPs adapt and adjust to new rules and targets and see them as an opportunity to learn. ---Make Work Light: When a team is weighed down by increased pressure and unrelenting demands, MVPs make hard work easier. These practices and a positive outlook and mindset can turn any employee into an MVP. Wiseman includes a playbook for individuals to use these principles and grow professionally in a fast-paced world. Read Less
