LEADERSHIP. Leaders have the character and ability to encourage others, inspire confidence and to guide others towards success. No matter what position you hold, leadership skills are valuable for moving you through your career and into a leadership role. “A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” – John Maxwell
ENGAGEMENT. Show enthusiasm: Personal energy is contagious, and so is the lack of it. No matter what the job, complete it with a sense of urgency. Leaders are engaged, asking questions and researching answers. Leaders are set apart as they choose to take on new challenges, seek new ideas, inspire a positive culture of teamwork and become major contributors.
APPRECIATION. The strongest, most effective leaders appreciate not just the business, but the people in it and they show their appreciation through their words and actions.
DEVELOPMENT. Leaders understand what the firm does, how it applies to your current position, what you need to do to provide the greatest value to the firm, and are aware of what firm expectations are to grow to the next step in your career. Whether through career development or individual learning, leaders are proactive in their own personal career growth.
