It’s not in our nature to “toot our own horn” and brag about our skills, qualities, experiences, and abilities.
As a result, we often downplay what we are capable of. This is a mistake that needs to be avoided at all costs. If you can’t brag about yourself then get a friend or family member to help you. We cannot stress enough that your resume is your one page advertisement on yourself so like any sales pitch make sure all the important points are covered, and that the hiring manager can quickly and easily see those selling points.
“ To live Servant Leadership effectively; we start with the view that we are going to treat our staff as our “customers.” As CEO of Zingerman’s, my “biggest” customers are the managing partners of each of our businesses, and the central administrative staff, all of whom report to me. In turn, each partner’s primary customers would be the managers who report to them in their businesses…In each case the idea is to that the leader is giving great service to his or her staff, in order to keep the service energy in the organization flowing out, toward the front-line hourly staff.
