Who You Are
You’re a A-player — we only have A-players on our team.
What’s the difference between an A-player and a B-player? A B-player does what he or she is told, does it well, and does it on time. If something unexpected happens, however, the B-player comes back and asks, “What do you want me to do now?”, or sets the problem on the Founders desk to solve.
In contrast, an A-player solves any unexpected problems that pop up in the course of achieving the results you desire and tells you about it after the fact. Or if an A-player comes to you with a problem, they’ll come with a recommended solution too. In other words, B-players focus on getting activities done, A-players focus on getting results done and they do this autonomously.
