How often during your career did you learn your impression of someone is not correct? What did you do about it, if anything?
We all go through this process of deciding whether someone is a “good match”. People within a large organization have the advantage of tapping into the company’s best practices for solutions.
Over a year ago, I spoke to someone who was working through the decision thought process of what type of employee he wanted in his company. So he started with himself. What type of behaviors did he work well with? What values did he hold in his life? Were these the same values he wanted to see in his employees? And why? Taking the time for self-reflection is a very big first step. It surely is a necessary one in deciding Who You Want To Be Known As. Have a great week.
