Many companies focus on the idea of “Employee Engagement”, but much of that concept is employer dependent. What most people don’t realize is that you can actually take ownership of your role yourself and make it work for you.
Rachel Cooke joins us today to share how you can take control to deliver your best work, and thrive in your role.
What you’ll learn
- What it means to deliver your best work and become your best self
- How you can develop new skills, capabilities, and talents
- The importance of connecting with your team and community with a sense of purpose
- What you can do on your own so that you can thrive in your work
Exactly 5 weeks from when I arrived in Canada I got a full time job, negotiated a higher salary and within the next 3 days I got another offer that pays 33% more. I am happy and very thankful to you, for you gave me support when I was looking and offered great tips.
Scott helped me learn what my strengths are and what is most important to me… but more important than that I learned about what I can't stop doing that I have to have in my work to make me happy
I think one of the reasons the podcast has been so helpful to me is because you talk to people in different roles, and all of a sudden I have exposure to people in different roles. Talking about why they got there and what they like about it.
