“Find out what you like doing best and get someone to pay you for doing it.” -Katherine Whitehorn
This class is not just any other boring course, but a gift of my most earnest and heartfelt advice. Thank you for accepting it. I am not a seasoned writer, but what I’ve written is the time-tested wisdom I’ve gained from 20 years of survival in the corporate world. Why do I speak of “survival”? I could say “experience”, “exposure”, or “challenges and successes” instead. But the truth is that the corporate career is a game where you may only thrive, survive, or lose depending on how well you play. No one told me this when I started and I had to learn the rules the hard way, over time.
Since you’ve chosen to read this, I’m assuming that you either want to be a better corporate citizen or are aspiring to be a great corporate leader. I hope I can teach you to play at your greatest potential, and at the very least, avoid making the mistakes that most other people make. As you read the rest of the lessons, you might find things that you already knew or sub-consciously agreed with. Maybe you’ll even disagree with other things. Regardless of this or your level of experience, you will improve your corporate awareness quotient significantly. I can even guarantee that if you consider my advice with an open mind, and practice what you learn with patience and courage, you will come out on top.
