As I was reflecting on my career history, even way back to when I was a waitress putting myself through school, I started thinking of all that I have learned along the way. I got a notebook and challenged myself to write down What I Learned in my Career. It was an interesting, eye-opening and truly encouraging process!


Sometimes we can move along in life thinking there is no value in the most menial of tasks or jobs. But we would be wrong. There is Always something to learn!

So, here is only a partial list of some of the things I have learned along the way in my career path.


I learned…

How to deal with people of all kinds

How to be gracious

Efficiency

How to work hard

How to serve others

How to ask better questions

How to interact with all levels within an organization

How to under-promise and over-deliver

How to follow up

How to communicate more succinctly

How to think before I speak

How to listen well

How to influence others without authority

How to handle myself professionally

How to “manage up”

How to incorporate my faith into my work

How to trust God in all things

How to transition from work to home

How to balance work and home life

How to mentor others

How to teach and train others

How to take the initiative without being asked

How to anticipate needs

How to be diplomatic

How to work well with a team

How to run an effective meeting

How to work with integrity


That is quite a list and it's only a partial one! Had I not taken the time to reflect, I might not have realized how each job gave me new tools to bring with me as I moved forward.


I encourage you to take the “What I Learned in My Career” Challenge. You might be surprised at all you have learned!
