What can I contribute?

In Peter Drucker's "The Effective Executive in Action," he asked that we should focus on outstanding strength - what a person can do uncommonly well. Of course, this capability can only be put into the test or limit by getting demanding and big jobs.

In getting projects or people to join our team, we must ask ourselves - what can I or they contribute? It should be that rather than, can we work together well?

Of course, this line of thinking is highly debatable. Not all of us will agree with Mr. Drucker on that sense.

Earlier today, I got the chancde to buy a copy of Leadership Promises for Every Day by John C. Maxwell. I must say that I'm very happy to stumble upon it. After reading a whole array of his books, I know that the time has come for me to read, listen, and understand what this great author is teaching at the spiritual level.

I read Peter too, but I guess, he's little off the wall when he said we should not worry about whether we can work as a team and just focus on contribution. When others feel/think the (teamwork) chemistry isn't there, likelihood is there that some people will start to drag their feet especially for asians where relationship is relatively important and given more weight.
