Business Acumen: Doing the "Right" Things Really Well
August 16, 2012
Too often in careers, people become narrow in their perspective - entrenched in their roles. They focus on what they have to get done today or this week (tactical) and lose sight of the bigger picture (strategy). In other words, they do a good job… but they either do the wrong things, or they do the right things for the wrong reasons (think about it).
If you want to be the type of employee that management can't imagine running the business without, you can't be just another corporate robot. You have to not only be willing to roll up your sleeves and get the job done - you also need the perspective that will help you do the right things really well.
