When we’re in the job market and looking for a company at which to work, we often look at the superficial aspects like salary, job title, location, work environment, benefits, etcetera. We rarely look at other important aspects such as the company’s values, leadership style, decision-making process, transparency and communication with its people. If you want to build your career with a company that aligns with who you are at your core, it’s important to understand these aspects.

This year is coming to an end and we’re getting ready to enter a new decade. Every year seems to go by faster than the last and it can easily feel as though we haven’t achieved anything.

“First, have a definite, clear practical ideal; a goal, an objective. Second, have the necessary means to achieve your ends; wisdom, money, materials, and methods. Third, adjust all your means to that end.” ~ Aristotle
To be effective in any area of life, we must set goals, measure and monitor our progress and make adjustments until we reach our goals.
Typically, an organisation appoints managers to lead its people, and get results that benefit the business, the team and the client. The role of a manager is loaded with responsibility and should not be taken lightly. To quote Voltaire, “With great power, comes great responsibility”. Too often, organisations assign this responsibility to individuals who are not the best fit. Being a good employee does not always equate to being a good manager.
