WORKING YOUR CORE…AT WORK
I had a lively discussion with a peer of mine who happens to work in human resources. The discussion was great and hit on many topics. We discussed diversity at work, performance, and other topics. One of the things that sparked an idea for this post was that this person said that what impressed him the most about an employee, was their CORE. The funny thing is that it was such an abstract statement, at the time, the CORE of a person. But I knew what he meant.
What makes a person tick? What drives them? What are their values at work? Are they committed? Authentic? Trustworthy? Tough? With so much great dialogue on my last post I thought this would be a great “virtual” round table discussion!
I think about the different roles I have had in Radio, Television, and Commercial Sales & Marketing; and my trait that existed within my CORE, was determination. I always was stretching myself. I never took a job that I knew I could do on day 1. I always wanted to learn more and achieve at higher rates than physics would grant me.
So, with that said. What 1 or 2 CORE traits get you noticed at work or help you succeed in your day-to-day operations.
