Recognizing Valuable Teammates
Let me clarify right away about the misconception that the title may be causing. I am not saying that the most vocal and visible person equals the most valuable member of the team, company, or any group. Contrarily, the quiet observer may be among any group’s most valuable asset.
People have a tendency to think that the one making the most noise is the most valuable member of the group. Sure, they may be the ones that get all of the attention. They may be the one delivering the communication, but are they the ones that always create the message.
The deepest thinker and most creative among your group, peers, circle, workplace, organization, club, etc. is likely the one that seemingly has little to say. That person may not always volunteer input, but if you ask them, you may be pleasantly surprised at how insightful they really are. In fact, there could be a gem among you hidden in plain site.
