A Shooting Star is often defined as a streak of light in the night sky, a wish to be made … something that captures the eye and moves one in awe and appreciation.
This latter definition can also be applied to a person whose abilities and talents appear to extend “above and beyond” the parameters of their job description. After all, “Only Shooting Stars break the mold!” (Smashmouth, 1999).
Many of us have encountered those whose creativity and imagination, passion and intellect, experience and expertise, as well as their team playing collective effort stands out and causes notice. These talents very well may cause an employee’s “above and beyond” attitude and ultimately make this employee worth recognizing.
