Elevating your leadership | “I don’t care that they stole my idea…I care that they don’t have any of their own.” – Nikola Tesla

Hire the person, not their employer

Way too frequently I have seen people get mesmerized by a brand or a logo from where a particular candidate is coming from and frequently those hires don’t work out long-term. Yes, for high-level positions you may need some “sizzle” and somebody to come from a large organization, but please when you’re hiring and building your teams focus on the person you are hiring and attracting not their current or previous employer. After all, you are getting this person not their previous employer.

Opinions of others

Opinions of others and why they don’t matter as much as most might think.

Money doesn’t change people

Money and power don’t change people, they expose them for what they have been all along.

You decide when to quit

You decide when to quit, not someone else. You live your life according to your terms, norms and plans, not according to the opinions and ideas of others.

There are no shortcuts

There are no shortcuts to anything major, important and truly valuable. They all require hard work, commitment and work ethic of a champion.

Do you have what it takes to be successful and achieve your goals?

Carer strategy: corporate headquarters

All things equal, if possible, always take the opportunity to work at the corporate headquarters and here’s why.

First, if you want to grow and stay there a while, it is good to be close to the executive leadership team and provide value by solving their challenges. In this process, you will become more visible and your work, effort and energy will be acknowledged and recognized in due time.

Second, headquarters generally have access to resources which are not available in other locations which could make a difference in how successful you and your team become.

Adjust your perspective

Adjust your perspective and focus on positive and grateful aspects of your life. Things could be better, sure, but they could also be much worse, don’t forget that. Work on those areas you want to improve, but don’t take people and valuable opportunities you have for granted.

We are all people first

We are all people first. Then, our gender, race, religion, nationality, ethnicity, political or sports affiliations come into play. People first, please remember that in all you do each day in your daily lives and be of service and value to others, don’t go out of your way to bring them down. Help others and by doing so you will be helping yourself.

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle”

Look for growth in your new job

Find your comfort zone, then leave it.

As you arrive at a new place pay attention to whether you are challenged to grow and learn as that is a good place to be a part of long-term. Learning new things and failing along the way is part of career growth and advancement so don’t doubt yourself for a second as there’s a reason you were selected to join this new organization.

Fulfillment, progress and growth is what all of us what in life so go find your place that provides those for you.
