Leaders: Don’t disconnect from what made you successful
- 15 Comment
Once you’re out of a professional role for more than a year it’s probably changed. Jobs change (or evolve), the requirements change, resources change, etc. There are many influences. Think about what technology alone has done.
Remember what it was like when you were in an assistant or associate role? It doesn’t hurt to brush up on your basics and hone the skills that helped you move ahead. In fact, they might take you more time than you remember. It may also give you a greater appreciation for those who do the tasks on a daily (or regular) basis.
If you’re in a leadership role, don’t become too disconnected from those things that led you to where you are today.
