Mike Klintworth's curator insight, March 16, 2014 9:50 AM

For too long, companies have wasted time, energy, and resources hiring the wrong managers and then attempting to train them to be who they’re not. Nothing fixes the wrong pick.

Graeme Reid's curator insight, March 16, 2014 7:16 PM

Far too often people who are doing well in a technical role are promoted into a management position with no thought as to whether they have the necessary skills.

Two Ways to Clarify Your Professional Passions

Two Ways to Clarify Your Professional Passions | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Have you ever noticed that highly effective people almost always say they love what they do? If you ask them about their good career fortune, they’re likely to advise that you have to love what you do in order to perform at a high level of effectiveness. They will talk about the critical importance of having a long-term perspective and real passion in pursuing a career. Numerous studies of highly effective people point to a strong correlation between believing in the mission, enjoying the job, and performing at a high level.

 

So why is it that people are often skeptical of the notion that passion and career should be integrally linked? Why do people often struggle to discern their passions and then connect those passions to a viable career path?

It is refreshing to learn from the mistakes of others.  Too often we celebrate these mistakes as if failure is good thing. In reality we should support those who fail knowing that all of us fail at one time or another. The important thing is to not allow any good failure go without seeking to apply the lessons it taught.
