All my jobs have thaught me how to deal with people in different areas, roles and personalities, learning how to handle your interactions with others can be really beneficial to push your work forward and not let your emotions take over you, specially in a professional setting.

Jennifer’s Answer

I think the most important thing I have learned in work and life is to be authentic. You don't have to be a different person in your personal and work life. Being able to be your authentic self at work will allow you to build real connections with your colleagues and helps you approach work from a perspective that aligns with your personal and professional goals.

Fiona’s Answer

Hi JaRon,

Hope all is well. I learned that employees learn on the job in corporate jobs, which means that your resume is important, but also your ability to adapt and be coachable even if you do not have all the job's requirements. Also, do not disqualify yourself for a job. You may not have all the requirements for a job description, but if you can tailor what you did and learned from your work experience, I believe it may increase your chances. Additionally, motivation is cool, but discipline is where it starts once motivations runs out. Focus on practicing discipline in your daily life. It is easier said than done though. Good luck!

Margaret’s Answer

How to focus on what matters. Every job has "time-fill" activities that feel like work and engage your attention, but don't actually solve the most important thing you need to work on. Consistently doing the most important thing every day first thing in the morning, even if it's the hardest thing that you want to avoid, is really helpful to be successful at work and at home.

Jose’s Answer

Yes, always be open minded about the advice/teaching/mentoring you receive. Remember these people have been doing this longer than you and giving their time to impart what they have learned. Sometimes, it's easy to rely on how you're used to doing things, and it's harder to accept alternative ways. Be willing to try new things.
