Thought of the Week- Help Others Shine
This week I was invited to speak with some students. The central topic was how do they best prepare for the working world? The session was well received and the students were engaged. In the Q&A session to a person all the questions were framed with a negative slant; what do I do if my boss does not listen? If someone takes my idea or if I’m over qualified and better than my supervisor and so on.
The advice that I gave the soon to be entering the workforce students is what I would give anyone; don’t pull people down to make yourself look good. Instead, make everyone look good and you will be recognized for being a great team player and someone who makes everyone around them better. Both are great qualities of a leader.
Help others shine and you will shine.
