As one of my journey to become financially independent is to earn a lot money. As I'm an employee and the only solution I have is to outperform in my job. I realize that to be outperforming in the corporate world, one must be a proactive employee. Unfortunately, I have seen some employees who are not proactive but outperform in his job. So it comes to a conclusion that we can’t 100% say the outperform employee doesn’t 100% they’re proactive. Probably some bosses doesn’t like people proactive? That is strange isn’t it? Guess every statement could be wrong and right in different environment. That's the unique and interesting about our world. Having said so, I do agree that majority of the outperformed employees are proactive in nature.
These are the lists of what proactive employees do:
- A proactive employee doesn’t wait for the boss to make every move.
- A proactive employee seeks information and the help needed to do the job.
- A proactive employee gives the boss feedback and asks questions.
- A proactive employee initiates action without having to be supervised.
