⚡ Fueler Weekly 41: The Value Of Being A Generalist
A generalist is a dabbler, an explorer, a learner — someone with broad knowledge across many topics and expertise in a few.
The Benefits Of Being A Generalist
Broad experience has its benefits. Generalists have a more diverse collection of knowledge to draw from, so they can see connections and correlations that specialists might miss. They tend to have a higher EQ, too, because becoming a generalist means interacting with many different kinds of people in all sorts of situations.
Generalists are the conductors that lead the orchestra. They have a high capacity to collaborate effectively and facilitate collaborations between teams because of their high EQ. Generalists also tend to have a higher level of situational awareness and can see the bigger picture. Where specialists tend to have a high degree of awareness in their own area, they may not be great at understanding areas outside their fields. They need a generalist, a big-picture thinker, to bring it all together.
