Have You Heard About Contributorship™?

It’s more than just a buzzword – it’s a mindset that transforms how we view and approach work within organizations.

Think about it this way: Your organization thrives because of its people – those individuals who dedicate their time, skills, and expertise to drive initiatives forward.

Traditionally, we’ve labeled them as employees, but in recent years, there’s been a shift in terminology. We now recognize these individuals as “individual contributors” – those who may not oversee others but play a vital role nonetheless.

But what does it truly mean to be a contributor?

It’s about more than just showing up; it’s about actively bringing value to the table. However, not all contributors are created equal. Some merely meet the baseline, while others go above and beyond,
demonstrating exceptional engagement and dedication.

In my two decades of experience managing contributors and advising on performance management, I’ve identified 13 key skills and attributes that set exceptional contributors apart. These qualities form the backbone of what I call the Contributorship™ paradigm – a framework for maximizing roductivity and employee engagement within organizations.

So, what are these skills and attributes?

You can find the full list on under the “For Employees” section. But it doesn’t stop there. If you’re curious about how embracing Contributorship™ could benefit your organization and its employees, I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn. Let’s start a conversation and explore the possibilities together. Your journey towards a more engaged and productive workforce begins now.
