I know a Vice President (VP) who hangs a sign outside his office that says: “Don’t Bring Me Problems … Bring Me Solutions!”
What he really meant by that sign is: “if you don’t know how to solve problems, then you don’t have a place in the organization” … makes sense now, right?
Problem solving is one of your most important professionals skills because regardless of your job description or position, “you are hired to solve problems“.
How well you deal with problems will be a determining factor in how successful you are at work or in life.
Stephen Covey advises us to put “First Things First”
But, when it comes to our careers or jobs figuring that out or prioritizing the most important things proves to be a surprising challenge for many IT Workers!
For example, while some believe that certifications are required for getting a job, others put more value on hands-on skills and experience!
So, the question is, which comes first in your career, “your hands-on skills & experience” or “your certifications”?
