Beyond A Role

A friend of mine started at a new company not too long ago. I asked him how it was going and what he does. He told me his job title. I rephrased, and asked what that meant. Who does he work with, what does he do on a regular basis? Tell me about what you do… beyond the role.

In the last few weeks, it’s been more apparent than ever before how many talents are under one roof in the firesphere. Sewing baskets have found their way into the office. Song writing skills have been dusted off for new projects. iMovie talents have emerged in full form. This place is hoppin!

Why does all this matter, one might ask?

Talent can be revealed in a plethora of ways, and it doesn’t always fit within the bulleted job description on a piece of paper. Talent continues to be unleashed and put to great use if the right opportunity presents itself. Sometimes all you have to do is ask.

What talents and passions do you bring to your role? Do you encourage your team to go beyond their job descriptions? What empowers you to bring your talents to the table?
