We’re passionate about what we do and we’re lucky enough to work with some of the most influential people who share insightful stories of success and failure in order to help us find the confidence to step up and reach our goals.
Here are 5 key takeaways from speakers and delegates over the past two weeks…
It’s important to note that values aren’t just for work. Values reflect who we are on a daily basis, in everything we do at home and at work. This holistic approach helps you be a leader in all aspects of your life, not just in your career.
“People care about what you’ve done, not what you’re going to do.”
When it comes to gentle self-promotion, most people say too little about what they have accomplished. This is a big mistake. Be proud and honest about your achievements.
Never be afraid to put your hand up and ask questions. Questions lead to deeper insights that can reveal valuable information to help you progress personally and professionally. It’s the simplest and most effective way of learning.
Always seek to understand more. That knowledge base gives you the confidence to make important decisions at crucial points in your career and personal life.”
Don’t wait for opportunities to come to you. If there’s something you want to do, make sure you go for it. Explain to your organisation what value you can bring top the table and convince them to give you a shot.
