Anyone who’s heard of Simon Sinek will know the meaning of this question. 40 million people have watched his inspiring TED Talk How Great Leaders Inspire Action.
He explains that people don’t buy WHAT you do, they buy WHY you do it. Have you ever stopped to think about WHY you do what you do every day?
Here’s the WHY behind Monumental Assistance.
I’m in a job that I love and I’m learning all the time so that I can continue to perform at my best. But I’m making a career move. What? I hear you cry, at your time of life? Well… yes! Exactly at my time of life, when organisations and society say ‘it’s time you stopped – you’ve given 30 years of your life, so now it’s time for you to put your feet up and relax.’ What?? No way! I have invested too much blood, sweat and tears in my career and my personal development to just stop because I’ve reached a pre-determined age. So for the past year I’ve been planning for my next step and from those plans, Monumental Assistance was born.
I’ve been privileged to work in management support in all kinds of companies, with all kinds of managers, cultures and teams, from Secretary to Office Manager, from Team Leader to Department Manager, and I want to do something positive with all that knowledge and experience. So here’s my WHY: I’m taking the passion I’ve always had for my job and giving it back to this wonderful profession of ours that has given me so much.
And the HOW? I’m paying it forward – I offer my services as a Coach, Counsellor, Mentor, Trainer, Writer and Speaker to help assistants at all levels to be the best they can be.
