I was running one of my Welding Purpose to Priority #WP2P workshops for a team of bright people this week who reached a milestone in their Professional career. Their collective response to one of my initial questions was so good that I think it is well worth sharing with you here. What would you add or support?
I asked: What advice would you give to someone more junior who is looking up to you for advice on how to win at work?
They said: – and yes, it was exactly 10 items, which I only realised after the event when we were transcribing flip charts for them.
Be honest with yourself and others
Own up to mistakes
Learn on purpose
Strengthen your self-belief
Know and work your capabilities and strengths
Set Goals and reflect on them
Don’t compare yourself to others
Reward yourself often
A great list from young people with a promising career in front of them. What do you think?
