My three sons inaugurated receiving vocation advice from me before they even started high school. It was both the curse and the bles of having a Mother who expended era as the Vice President of Talent and the Vice President of Human Resources at Chick-fil-A. As they grew, I tried to impress upon them the importance of reputation, competency and chemistry in their professional lives. These are the top gratuities I shared with them in advising them on starting and growing their careers.
1. Find special purposes , not only a job . A profession will provide a paycheck, but special purposes will fulfill their own lives. Do something that matters to you. 2. Solve troubles . The nature requires more problem solvers. When you detect a number of problems, identify it, own it and solve it. You add value to your organization when you solve the problem you identify.
3. Take care of you . You cannot play at your best if you do not take care of yourself physically, mentally and emotionally. While you are working hard to achieve professional goals, dont forgotten to schedule is high time to take care of you.
4. Go Above and Beyond. Distinguish yourself by doing more than questioned and doing occupations no one else wants to do.
5. See possibilities , not obstacles. There is an abundance of both. A positive and rosy posture will take you farther and endear you to those with whom you work.
6. Foster the nightmares of others. Show interest in facilitating other beings achieve their daydreams. It is likely that someone help me out here along the way. Pay it forward by helping others on their path.
7. Treat everyone the same and while ensuring respect. Strong relations are core to any success and begin with respect. Remember that everyone you encounter is special to person plow everyone the style you crave the special parties in your life to be treated.
8. Protect your reputation. Integrity is currency. Always do what you say you will do when you will say you will do it. Never lie about anything. Avoid anything that even has the illusion of impropriety.
9. Give generously. Share your time, geniu and wealth with others. You will give a lot, but you will receive more because of the people you gratify and the places generosity will take you.
10. Demonstrate excellence in all that you do . Close enough is never good enough. Do your best at all times.
11. Commit amply to wherever you are . If you are at work, commit to being fully present. If you are with their own families or acquaintances, commit to being fully present with them.
12. Set objectives and measure your change. If you dont clearly define where you want to go and monitor your progress toward the end, you are not likely to get where you wish to go.
13. Seek and ethic feedback . Be willing to hear the singer of reviewers and act on feedback that you receive. Find truth tellers in your life and listen to their wisdom.
14. Share the credit . Rarely does private individuals reach anything alone. Acknowledge the individuals who help you along the way and honor them as you are able.
15. Be grateful and courteous. Thanking you often and be willing to give goodnes to others. In a macrocosm full of egoes, grateful and kindly parties separate themselves. Their readings and force are memorable.
I have witnessed first-hand these qualities in beings I worked with over the course of my more than thirty-year busines at Chick-fil-A. These idiosyncrasies is not simply aid in career success, they contribute to the enduring influence of the ones who possess them.
