As you read, think about the career fitness journey you have just completed with this book and how Brian is using the lessons he has learned in his workplace. For most adults over the age of 21, the majority of our time is spent at the workplace or with work-related things. A lot of people dread going to work, and, until recently, I was no different. I have been working with a worldwide copy and print company for about two years and felt I needed to step up my responsibilities. I wanted to show people that I have potential to change the way others work in my store, and how they spend their time in what I call “Our home away from home.” With a recent promotion, I took this work experience class to allow me to work full time and gain college credit simultaneously. Little did I know this course would turn out to be more of a benefit than just another class. Over the past few months, I have been on a path to develop my operating skills, to be a little more self-motivated, and most importantly to develop leadership skills, so I may motivate others to want to work and look forward to coming into work every day.Besides copying, the company accepts packages to pack and ship at the same time as maintaining a store with lots of machinery, and serves customers who need assistance. When I first started working at the store, I felt overwhelmed with what was expected of me. Work was very repetitive and difficult, but I knew I couldn’t continue to view my workplace in such a negative way. For my objective on self-motivation, I started coming into work with a positive attitude, ready to take on any obstacle the day may bring my way. I had set my goal to make every customer happy, no matter what it takes, and to build a trust with them. I have found that if we build a relationship with the customers, they are more likely to be lenient and patient with any situation that may come up. This also makes the workload a lot easier for my coworkers because we are able to handle our work without stress and/or worry. In turn, the customer’s patience allows us to focus more on getting our jobs done right. My position is titled lead project coordinator. My job is to manage all store operations as far as production goes. It is my responsibility to make sure jobs are getting done correctly, on time, all the while completing multiple jobs in a timely manner. I must make sure all our sources of operation are available to us for whatever we may need them for, and keep track of all workers and what they need to focus on. Along with the position, I also do the production, and attend to the mailing portion of the store, as well as the graphics stations and technical work. My skills have developed tremendously since my first year working here. In my store, I am the go-to guy of my shift. Even the assistant managers ask me for advice from time to time. That alone is a good feeling. Although I am knowledgeable about most everything in my store, I know there is still much to learn. My skills are an aspect of myself that will never reach an end. Taking this work experience course allowed me to experience some operations of the store that only a manager would be involved in. I presented the idea of developing my leadership skills to my assistant manager and with that she granted me minor assistant manager responsibilities. It may sound like even more weight on my shoulders, but I understand that with every step up you make in this company, you take on new responsibilities as well as needing to maintain your old ones. When managers take time off I was left responsible for all workers on my shift, as well as the store. It felt great. My coworkers looked up to me to get things done right, and we had fun while doing our daily routines. I got comments from my coworkers saying it was the most fun they have had while working. We even finished all the work with time to spare in the end, which allowed us to better attend to every customer who walked through our doors.During this work experience class, I have learned that everything truly works in a cycle. We take care of ourselves, and it helps us take care of our coworkers and customers. When we are positive, customers are positive in return, ultimately resulting in a positive end. Everyone is satisfied and has a lot less stress when coming to work. Also, with this course, it helped me prove to my managers that I am capable of doing more. In the near future, I plan on applying for an assistant manager position at one of the many new stores opening around the area. For the time being, I will stay with this company and further develop my skills. When it comes time to move on, I will have a lot to show for myself through my improved skills. ************After you read the story please answer the all question****************** 1.
