Not everyone has the makings of a model employee. Many really useful people, especially creative types, are often not good "team players". OK, thereís "no I in team", but there is an M and an E in there someone!
I like to say that the world is split into two types of people. There are the sheep (ie, the great majority), and then there are the shepherds (actually, there is a third category, the wolves, but we wonít go into that now).
My point is that some of the best people are not really employable in the normal sense. It depends what youíre looking for, talent or drones. The trouble with being talented, of course, is you then become a threat to those who are less so (and often sitting farther up the food chain). All this adds up to "safe" people being hired. Mediocrity, in other words. Iíve seen it time and time again.
Needless to say, I'm unemployable myself! Ha, ha.
