Players learn the commands for the video game and run up the score.
Doers learn how to do something to get results.
Players value image – being in the right place, knowing the right people, being included in the right projects.
Doers value completion – collaboration moving the project forward, process improvement to gain efficiency, acquiring new project-applicable skills, completing the task or project.
Doers are viewed by coworkers and management as 'THE go to' person – makes it happen, gets it done, achieve results AND looks for the next project.
I'd take a team of Doers over a company of Players every time. Why? When the philosopher, Larry the Cable Guy, said it best: Git R done – he was talking about the Doer!
