Trainer’s Tip: Life Lessons


Steve Berry
Stephen Berry, Training Director for Neos Learning, offers some life lessons for success and happiness.

  • Life is temporary, and there are more important things in it than work.

  • Work must be enjoyable, fulfilling and emotionally rewarding. We all spend so much time and creativity within work, it is criminal if we do not enjoy it – if you don’t enjoy your job, quit and do something else – now.

  • All relationships are a function of communication – home and work – focus on the skills of listening, understanding, empathy and articulation.

  • Don’t be fazed by fads – they will pass. Forget the dinosaur management exhibited by the likes of The Apprentice. Whilst much of this is exaggeration for the sake of television, the aggressive dominant boss of the 1970s belongs in the 1970s. Do what is right – even if it is against the direction of the latest business fashion.

  • Don’t compromise personal values for the sake of work. If there is a values mismatch – either change the company or leave.

  • Not many people get sacked for challenging things – it is how they challenge things which make the difference between good and bad. Sheep are no use in business so choose to challenge, but choose better how to challenge.
