TRIPLE III TIME: The Power of Career Stories
This week’s TRIPLE III TIME message is totally and simply all about highlighting The Power of Career Stories. Everyone has a unique Career Story to tell. Age doesn’t matter! The Career Story told by a twelve-year-old to their aunt or grandmother has tremendous value with regard to their new understanding the challenges of a “soon-to-be” teenager in today’s world. Likewise, the 70-plus year old with almost 50 years of customer service experience from both the public and private sectors, can explain “QUALITY” better than any textbook.
One of the most educationally impacting components of my college class instruction structure is the sharing of Career Stories by professionals I invite in each semester. Whether it is a local business person, elected official, public servant, instructor colleague or maybe just a great friend; the learning value of each Career Story is priceless.
Sometimes listeners are drawn in by the passion of the speaker and the energetic words they use to convey the highs and lows of their life journey. Other times a certain Career Story focuses on a specific vision that a person had at one time in their life but it was somehow denied due to personal circumstances. Each Career Story always carries its own special personality and areas of continuous learning.
Bottomline: Take some time to make a page of notes about YOUR CAREER STORY. And if possible, hold a CAREER STORY time event in your workplace. This area of professional sharing can have a positive workplace culture impact…and you will never know if you don’t give it a try.
