Businesses often respond to the allure of hiring an over achiever, even if it’s just for a short time to “fix” their business. The benefits seem to be so high that it’s easy to forget to think about how they may end up causing more problems than they are worth according to Incisive Edge’s article.
Yes, and over achiever can accomplish a lot, but you have to be a strong enough leader to control that energy and focus it in the right direction. You see, an over achiever isn’t a strong team player, which means they don’t like to follow rules, especially if the business owner can’t enforce them. The smaller the business, the stronger the possibility is that they will throw your business into chaos rather than steer it in the right direction. To harness their energy requires a business that can keep up or even stay ahead of them.
