I am happy to introduce Glen Gaugh as Guest Blogger for the next few weeks on the subject of professional success. He brings a unique view as he is not from a traditional corporate setting. This post is the introduction. The rest of his series will be exclusive to The 1% Edge Portable Coach App. As an SME (subject matter expert), Glenn will have his own tab on the app. If you've not downloaded it, you can do so here - for now it's still free. Get app here. If you want to follow the topics in the series on Twitter - you can do so with hashtap #1%EdgeApp.
One final note - many of you who have seen my Twitter profile have commented on my tagline, "let's put the human back in human resource." Glen's post is a reminder of the human component of the workplace experience.
Personal Balance - Professional Success
- Do not view those emotional deposits as ways to “keep him/her happy” for the next time you have to stay late at the office. Look at it as a way to share your enthusiasm for your work and include others in the reason- and the passion- that you have for doing what you do.
- Let others make deposits into your account. Share in the stories your loved ones have to tell and support them in their endeavors. Find joy in others’ accomplishments.
- Be appreciative of the ways your closest friends and family bend to allow you to do what you do- and be just as flexible for them.
