I’m preparing for a talk I’m giving to a corporate’s diversity group this week, and found myself remembering some of the best and worst advice I’ve been given in terms of my career.
1. know yourself and
2. be yourself
And the worst (well not advice actually but memorable all the same) from my headteacher on the day I left school, ‘you’ll never make anything of yourself because you talk too much’. Luckily that comment didn’t put me off, but I’d imagine it might have a different effect on other people.
I’d love to hear your thoughts – what great and/or terrible advice have you received?
