While lists like this seem to have a lot in common, this one had a few that were a bit unconventional.  From embracing side hustles to focusing on outcomes over KPIs, we break down what truly sets top performers apart.

.A few examples of the signs of a high performing employee:

  • Side Hustles Indicate Commitment – Employees with side hustles often showcase high levels of accountability and self-motivation. They’re balancing workloads and pursuing passions, which translates to high performance in their primary roles.
  • Rebellion Against Micromanagement = Self-Motivation – Top performers resist micromanagement because they value autonomy. They’re self-driven and just want to get the job done without unnecessary oversight. Trust them, and you’ll see great results!
  • Humility Enhances Trust and Success – While confidence is crucial, humility helps build trust within a team. High performers are often humble, sharing credit and recognizing others’ contributions, which strengthens team dynamics and drives success.
