The Art of Being Indispensable at Work with Bruce Tulgan with The Remarkable Leadership Podcast

What are the traits of a go-to person? You know, the person who gets the job done. Most likely, we all want to be a person who is reliable and great to work with. Bruce Tulgan cautions us though not to confuse go-to with a yes man. Bruce’s latest book is THE ART OF BEING INDISPENSABLE WORK: Win Influence, Beat Overcommitment, and Get the Right Things Done. Kevin and Bruce discuss the importance of showing up and being valuable. When we play the long game and show others how we can help, they will want to reciprocate and help us. However, don’t get caught always saying yes. There are other options to serve needs and provide value. You don’t want to be remembered for the “yes” you didn’t deliver.

In this episode, Bruce shares his thoughts about:

  • Over-commitment syndrome.
  • Other options to yes and no.
  • Coaching others to become go-to people.
