Read of the day
I loved AngelList Head of Marketing Helen Min’s newest piece, “Wanted: Smart Generalists.”
I thought it could be useful not only for early-stage founders figuring out who to hire when, but also for self-identified “smart generalists” who are figuring out how to tell their story and explain their value prop to potential employers.
Helen describes how she advises early-stage founders to find “Super Individual Contributors” — generalists who are…
Impact-driven: Super ICs seek growth, not titles. They want a seat on a rocket ship and don’t much care which seat they get.
Interested in steep learning curves: Super ICs pursue the steepest learning curve possible, keeping laser-focused on moving the needle for the company.
Self-starters: Super ICs get things done with minimal hand-holding.
Agile: Like a Swiss Army knife, Super ICs come in handy in many different situations. They enjoy juggling different types of projects. They aren’t experts in any one area but competent in many—and they’re especially useful in an emergency.
Problem solvers: Creative problem-solving is their superpower. A new challenge energizes them—as long as it’s something that will move the needle.
Translators: Because they are insatiably curious, they make excellent translators for disparate teams. They connect dots throughout the organization.
Sound familiar? 🙂
