9 ACTIONS TO UP YOUR GAME
A guide for the young employee
By Jared Louw (Sponsored by MSC Business College)
I recently realised that I’d reached the 10 year mark in my employment career. Whether I’ve been a success or not, is all relative and up for debate. However, what isn’t debateable is just how much I’ve observed and learned over ten years. Most of this learning has happened the hard way, as it usually does, but I’ve also been fortunate enough to observe superiors who have set great examples in different ways. I’ve also been fortunate to have made mistakes. I say fortunate, because without these mistakes, real learning would never happen. Learning and development is never a straight line, but rather a jagged zig zagged line of error and modification.
Over the past few years I’ve had the chance to work with or observe a number of young employees, many of whom have left me feeling some degree of disappointment in how they’ve conducted themselves. In these times I’ve often wished that I could spend more time with each and every one of them, in order to offer some advice and encouragement. Seeing young people succeed is something that is really important to me. Young professionals doing well in their chosen fields is not just beneficial to them, but to their families and greater communities as well.
With this in mind, in an effort to give back, I’ve put together what I view as the 9 ACTIONS TO UP YOUR GAME – a guide for the young employee.
