OCBC training on performance-guage has a motto — effectiveness through other people (influence, cooperation or leadership) is more /valued/ than individual effectiveness.
Other employers follow a similar reward+promotion criteria but implicitly. This explicit motto from OCBC cast a long shadow /over/ me. In the shadow, I became effectively a second-class citizen.
However, most of my competitive advantages, strengths .. fall into Personal effectiveness, such as but not limited to
- cash flow — burn rate, nonwork income
- demonstrable expertise and knowledge
- dev-till-70 (career longevity)
I am increasingly convinced that, as factors of life chances, life-span satisfaction,,, my brand of effectiveness is more valuable than interpersonal effectiveness. The latter is overrated. My personal effectiveness provides me the parachute, the cushion, the safety net.
