You'LL Learn

  • Changing career is scary as you are dealing with the unknown: be prepared to work through it and keep learning
  • Spending time at the coalface helps evolve your empathy and understanding of what others are experiencing
  • Branding is about delivering an experience not the external trappings of visuals like the logo – bring out whatever is on the inside - this defines the brand
  • Being true to your beliefs and doing the right thing even if there are consequences to yourself is important but not always easy
  • Take responsibility for your actions and do right by others – be tolerant of mistakes – very rarely does anybody get it right the first time
  • We all have an emotional bank account where we can make deposits and withdrawals in our relationships – we need to have more deposits than withdrawals in order to build up this bank account – Stephen Covey
  • Build bridges with people especially when there are problems or gaps, this is an ongoing process even with established relationships
  • Taking the time out to take care of yourself makes a big difference in how you engage in the decision-making process and your behaviour in the business environment
