As recently discussed, the quantity of work produced and the quality of your work are keys to creating your good reputation. Let’s face it, if you produce a low quantity of work and the work you do produce is low quality, your days are numbered. Even the best attitude and behavior will not offset low quantity and poor quality.
What about if the work you’re producing is high quality, but there’s too little of it? It helps that you have a good attitude and that you demonstrate good behavior, but this will only take you so far. If you could just grow your volume of work without diminishing quality, you would be all set.
Then there are those people who crank out a large quantity of work but the quality of what is being produced is sub-par. They have a great reputation as a workhorse. They produce more work than all of their colleagues combined. Unfortunately, the quality of their work is so low it seems more like they are horsing around.
Then there’s the perfect combination of high quantity and high quality. These people are meeting or exceeding the expectations of those for whom they are producing work. Their quantity is where it should be and their work is of high quality. Their reputation with respect to the work that they produce is also high.
