Can you keep a secret?Published: 2020-10-21 01:47
Some of you have been following Life at Essity since the beginning of my writing adventure but in case you were a new comer, you can find out about my starting line right here.
Nevertheless, if you asked the returning readers for some hints, they might summarize me with a couple of words: curious individual.
Grew up in Italy, student in Spain, resident in Sweden, lover of travels, languages and cultures, with communication-related studies and purchasing-related jobs.
Demanding and restless when it comes to searching for something more or different. Open to possibilities, as a mantra.
After zigzagging down different paths and tasting bites of life from different corners of the world, I feel I have reached a certain awareness and some personal successes – to be considered part of my secret formula – that I like to share with others.
You – dear readers – are my others now.
These couple of years within Essity brought me to an important realization: how motivation can push one person to go beyond their limit, deliver a great quality in what they do and walk the well-known “extra mile“.
But how do you build motivation?
Easier said than done, that´s for sure.
Essity worked many years to reach a great involvement level in all the company´s areas, to keep its employees satisfied and in balance, active and proud to contribute to a bigger cause. And I confirm this is highly perceptible when stepping into an Essity office.
Participation is the first step towards feeling motivated.
But our brain holds a magic power able to generate a drive that can support motivation.
This magic secret power is as simple as believing in what you do.
Everyday. Across every storm you can find in front of you.
This is how great things happen, and how companies like Essity manage to succeed.
Imagine it´s your turn to present a topic to an audience.
Or sell an idea to somebody you want to convince about a cause close to your heart.
Isn´t it all about the passion and energy that flow out of your spontaneous engagement used to expose your concept?
It´s all weaved together: the moment you have a strong belief, you will for sure make an impact!
We´re all different, and so too our motivation is!
Not everybody keeps the same beat while listening to a song, right?
Every person is different, such as any personal path and any career. And of course our energies and passions are as well.
Essity recognizes the uniqueness of talents and the value of combining diversity.
Life never takes a straight path: Essity is aware of this and endorses changes that lead to progress.
That is also why learning and development are encouraged through a mix of onboarding by expert colleagues, doing things first hand and a schedule rich in trainings.
In an environment where good vibes are permeated, a positive mood is very likely to exist. And collaboration leads to other collaboration, exactly like care and respect.
And that´s how a productive domino effect is born.
Believe in your ideas + transform your motivation into actions = my secret formula for daily success.
…Ok, I won´t blame you for sharing my secret if you want to 🙂
