Cleopatra’s Answer

I have learned the most important aspect of work is the relationships I build with people. Being an expert at something can be fulfilling, but the experiences we gain from working with others and learning from each other is long lasting and satisfying. If you have big ideas, they become bigger when shared with others, and even better when you give them away so others can make them better. I've also learned that job satisfaction is much more in your control than you think, and is often closer than you think. Look more closely at what you bring and what you have and you can find inspiration close to home. I have learned to remind myself to regain perspective when I get overwhelmed, especially when trying to balance work, family, self and other responsibilities. Lastly, pausing and reflecting often is good practice and a good lesson...breathe!

Lisa’s Answer

A key thing I've learned from my job is that there are many ways to solve challenges we face. While we can easily fall back into doing things a certain way because of habit or comfort, if we don't continue to question how we solve our challenges we become stagnant in our thinking. Times change and challenges evolve, so creativity of thought is critical. If we continue to ideate new ways of thinking, and encourage others to do so as well, we find that the results are more rewarding. Not to mention our jobs are that much more satisfying because sometimes we can truly make a huge impact with thinking differently on even the smallest of things.

Hi Bella,
One of the primary things I have learned throughout my career is that there is always more to learn. Even when you think that you are an expert at something you can always learn more and you can learn from everyone even the most junior person or someone that you may not think you can learn something from. So it is important to remain humble and open-minded and realize that growth and learning are constant and ongoing processes which never end!

Being a good listener is critical to success in any role. Listening shows respect and regard for the people you work with. It helps to build rapport and demonstrates that you care about others and what they have to say. When you are a good listener, people will tend to listen more carefully to you, as well.

Rebecca’s Answer

Thank you for the question. I would say i keeps learning something new everyday. We can learn new things any time including when we reading some news, talking to friends & colleagues, from our jobs, even talking to some kids, etc.
There are many things that appears everyday like new technology, etc. We have to keep ourselves up to update. Steve Jobs told the students 'Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish'. It is helpful not only our job but also our daily life.
Also, I would recommend to keep learning like attending courses or seminars from time to time. Nowadays, there are a lot of courses held online. It can save a lot of traveling time.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Always try and be as informed as you can be on a topic so when your opinion is sought you have a view. Many times people will overanalyze issues and not come prepared to express an opinion. Your view may be accepted or may not, but at least you are contributing.
