Here at IMPACT, we work in an agile system -- inspired pretty heavily by Spotify's model -- and have gone through some cross-team restructuring over the past year.

Because of this, a lot of IMPACT employees have questioned exactly how their performance is being judged and measured.

IMPACT Founder and CEO Bob Ruffolo provided context to help give a little more guidance:

"My advice: Be the person on your team that your teammates say 'don’t take them off my team, we don’t want to lose them! They’re too valuable to the team!' That’s the ultimate judge of performance, and that’s ultimately your job description, to be a valuable member of the team."

Though I really appreciated his response, it led to some additional questions on how do we define "valuable."

Defining what "valuable" means is pretty subjective per person and per team. 

In today's 100th episode of Creator's Block, Marcella and I discuss exactly what makes an invaluable team member and provide tips to improve on those skillsets and traits so your teammates will never say, "it's OK if they are moved to a different team."
