As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, it is abundantly clear to see how today’s workplace has radically changed. From how, when and where employees work to the skills and experience employers need for employees to possess, it is a different world when it comes to being successful in the workplace. We know employees need to be technologically-savvy. We know employees need to demonstrate problem-solving skills, to use creativity, and be innovative. We know employees need to develop their communication and interpersonal skills.
However, there are core characteristics and traits successful employees have always had to have in the workplace. These have not changed (and will not change) in light of COVID-19. As part of our mission-focused work to provide the tools to help people build their own financial independence, we recently had the opportunity to talk with four business leaders about their individual paths to career and personal success. Our business leaders shared the importance of mentoring, networking, and civic engagement as integral components of their accomplishments.
Watch as our panelists tell their stories and provide helpful tips for success here. Our panelists include:
- Jefferson Guild, Field Operations Manager at Liberty Utilities
- Marc Lussier, Vice President of Operations at Geophysical Survey Systems (GSSI)
- Amy Chhom, Realtor/Broker at The Chhom Group
- Tina Sharby, Chief Human Resources Officer, Easterseals New Hampshire
Lyndsey Ducharme, one of our MFF Fellows, wrote this blog about not only her learning take-aways from attending this workshop but her experience in helping to actually plan the event. We encourage MFF Fellows like Lyndsey – and you – to engage in our community by sharing strategies and tools to help others become financially independent.
