3 Smart Ways to Stand Out by Serving Others

0

Throughout your college years, one of your business professors or mentors probably advised you that it’s a “dog eat dog” or an “every man for himself” world. While on some levels this notion may be true, you can actually use this truism to your advantage.

Instead of being bolted down to your personal career agenda, you should widen your career path by becoming what I call a “career servant.”

For simplicity’s sake, a career servant is someone who serves others. By practicing career servanthood, you can engender many positive results. In fact, this altruistic strategy can lead to ultimate career satisfaction because you can help your organization advance, your colleagues succeed and yourself grow — all at the same time.
