Last week, members in the Get Ahead Club had the opportunity to listen to my interview with Dondi Scumaci, author of Designed for Success: The 10 Commandments for Women in the Workplace, Ready, Set…Grow! and Career Moves. Dondi is an international speaker, author and expert in professional and personal development. Known for high energy seminars that produce dramatic results, Scumaci’s workshops are designed to deliver solid, actionable disciplines for employees and executives alike. (Our GAC members said that this interview was one of the best yet! Thank you Dondi!)
Here are a few things I learned in the interview:
The facts: A recent Gallup poll survey measuring employee engagement revealed that 17% of employees are disengaged, 54% are not engaged and only 29% are truly engaged. Many people choose not to engage and be happy in their work. You may think that this is bad news that the workforce is disengaged. But it isn’t! It’s actually good news for us ambitious women!
As you add value and create opportunity in the workplace, you will actually stand out from the crowd that is disengaged because you will be energized, engaged and fulfilled.
My favorite part of the interview was when Dondi recommended creating a 100 day plan to write your success story. Presidents, CEOs, and even marathon runners use one hundred days as a benchmark for success. I created my 100 day plan this past weekend so June 26th, 2013 is going to be a very successful day!
What is your plan in the next 100 days to get where you want to be?
