Tasks, milestones, and activity reports are a means to an end. Our job is to deliver results.
Pay attention to details:
Maintain a vigilant focus on details in all communications and projects. Never make mistakes that are due to lack of focus or effort. Always ask yourself, “Is this the best I can do?”
Be a proactive:
Communicator: Do not ever leave our clients or peers wondering. Anticipate their information needs and maintain a high level of communication at all times.
Challenge yourself to be great:
Always challenge yourself and those around you to improve. There is no limit to what you can achieve in business and in life.
“I don’t know” is not an acceptable answer. Our clients and your peers rely on you for solutions. Use your experience and the endless resources available to you to find answers.
Maintain a career/life balance:
Your career affords you’re the opportunity to live a full and rewarding life, but do not let it consume you. Maintain balance among work, wellness, relationships, community involvement, professional associations, friendships, hobbies, and interests.
Grow your accounts:
The life-blood of every consultant is the client base. It is your job to retain and grow your accounts by maintaining an in-depth knowledge of our clients and their industries, building relationships, delivering results, and keeping a pulse on opportunities.
Show imagination in your strategic thinking and bring creativity to every project.
Be an independent thinker and risk taker:
Do not get stuck in the rut of conformity. Look beyond traditional wisdom and conventional solutions. Be willing to take calculate risks and make mistakes.
Strive for excellence:
Set high performance standards, and always strive toward personal and professional goals.
Challenge yourself to see the big picture. Always be analyzing—perceptions, audiences, objectives, strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Find connections in seemingly unrelated news and trends.
Hunger for knowledge:
Do not ever stop learning. Consume the wealth of information that is all around you, and share your knowledge for the betterment of our clients and peers.
Stay in the moment:
You will see and do things in your career others can only dream of. There will be highs and lows, victories and defeats. Cherish those moments, but do not dwell on them. Your job is to stay in the moment, and appreciate it for what it is.
Positive energy is contagious. Bring enthusiasm and passion to your work every day.
