How do you present yourself at work? (Sloppy, polished, fresh, professional, passionate, energetic)
Owners feel you are? (trustworthy, reliable, dependable, dishonest, unaccountable, careless)
How do your peers perceive you? (nice, smart, sharp, witty, sarcastic, friendly helpful, mentor, hard worker, best supervisor, best resource on the job, a$$hole, rude, un-responsive, selfish)
Now ask yourself who you want to be? Not everyone wants to be at “the top”, the corporate level, and that’s great. It is understandable that the building and physical part of the job is exciting, and people really enjoy that career. The important part is, regardless of where you want to be, set YOUR goal and be at YOUR "top".
Your Name: (filled in from the description, you filled in from questions above)
What does your name? (Will you be the person nobody wanted to work with, the person that never completed a task on time, the person everyone wanted leading their crew, or the example the company uses of “what good looks like”)
How does this relate to construction, and why should you care? We go to work everyday to build our name, to take that next step up the ladder or accomplish a personal goal. We get one opportunity in life to leave whatever name we want to leave. How many people do you connect with at work? There is plenty of opportunity if you put in the effort to become who you want to be. Never settle! It's your life make it count!
