“To most people ‘specialization’ indicates accomplishment and success, when in fact the opposite is true. You, me, all of us... we’re too good to specialize.

And so are your employees.

In fact, the pursuit of perfection is the enemy, especially on a professional level. The current professional landscape actually values generalists over specialists. Change occurs quickly. Skills that are valued today are obsolete tomorrow.

Managers can’t just be good at managing a certain function; they need to be good leaders. Employees can’t just be good at performing a certain function; they need to embrace an entrepreneurial mind-set and constantly reinvent themselves.”
