Advance Your Career. Find a Partner. The Tale of Two Arrows

Advance Your Career. Find a Partner. The Tale of Two Arrows | Champion Personnel | Staffing | Cleveland, Ohio

A close friend asked me to break an arrow across my knee. Easy. Then he tied two together with leather. “Try it again.” Not easy, at all.

We all need help, support, and strengthening.

Some call the second person a “Mentor”. Not a wife, husband or friend.

Top executives, college students, new workers, hourly workers, tech workers and the formerly incarcerated will all benefit from a guidance counselor or coach.

The unfortunate fact is that in today’s world of interconnectivity, done mostly via text, phone or emails, an actual person to person engagement is severely lacking.

The best engagement is person to person. And the best person to engage with is one who will make you better.

Why Do You Need a Mentor?

  • Executives typically separate themselves in the course of their duties. Most are lonely and have few people to give them feedback.
  • College students study on their own a lot. And they are surrounded by peers. Professors teach, not coach.
  • New workers may NOT have had positive role models in their family or friends. Schools don’t teach success. They teach “stuff” to memorize.
  • Hourly workers may also have had no consistent role models, and may not be surrounded by good examples.
  • Tech workers are knee-deep in technology and may not have “life experiences” to deal with life outside of data.
  • People who have made mistakes in a former life may need constant reminders to leave that life behind and what a new path can be. We ALL need a second chance … and a role model to become.

A mentor guides and coaches. They don’t “do it for you”. They challenge you, keep you honest, and point you in the right direction. They tell the truth and help you find the truth. They answer questions. And point you toward answers.

Find a person (not a friend) who is “better than you are now” and will help you discover the “YOU”, you want to become. Do it now.

A career employment specialist can be a good way to start.

Career advancement. Find a coach. Earn more money.

Get Your Education, But Don't Forget This One Thing...

By Champion Personnel
June 04, 2019 Category: Candidates, Education

It seems that the government, school systems and employers (and media) are all stressing the need for more useful knowledge (learn a skill). Knowledge is good. But NEVER forget that being successful has more to do with your efforts and results than your book knowledge. Employers will hire a hard-working, enthusiastic person who wants to learn WAY before they will hire a person with theoretical knowledge who shows little or no desire/drive or Grit. And they will promote the hard charger years before the person with a piece of paper who shows no drive or motivation. Fact. No Bull. Motivation in action: the path to A Better Job. A Better Life.

Get Paid More. Get Promoted

It is actually easier today than 10 or 15 years ago. More people today miss more work, are late for work or put out just enough to get by. Employers are frustrated and are in urgent need of promotable people they can count on. Here are 4 things you can do to make more money, get promoted or get recognized as an outstanding employee. None of these will cost you a dime: Show up for work, every day, 5-10 minutes early. Be ready to work. This will absolutely be noticed by managers. Even if you are sick, show up and let your employer send you home. Calling off via phone or text leaves questions. Put out 100% of your best efforts. You are there. Might as well. Look for and ask for other things to do, if your job is stalled. You will get known as a doer, someone who can set a good example. Be attentive. Having a focus on your work will, again, get you noticed. People who get noticed for doing good things, acting like a good worker, get raises and more training, and promotions.

How to Tell the Right People Your Boss is a Jerk

By Champion Personnel
June 04, 2019 Category: Candidates

Tempting, isnt it? Satisfying? Could be. Do many deserve it? Yes. And no. Being a Boss or Manager is NOT easy. And most receive NO or very little training or coaching in how to be a good one. 75% of all quits today have something to do with leaving a Boss, not the company. So, when do you tell someone about a Bad Boss? After you leave? The day you leave? Weeks BEFORE you leave? Not at all? Here is what to do, if you are looking for a solution, or you want to be considered an exemplary employee (especially if you ARE going to leave, eventually, and want a good reference): 1) Make sure you are darn good at what you do, or getting there. Perhaps any negative comments from the Bad Boss have to do with your behavior or results. If your output or behavior is lacking, some of the sandpaper between you and your Bad Boss is he/she simply wearing thin about you. 2) Write down the actual incidents where the Boss is being Bad. What happened? What started it? How did it come across? Do you have
