“Your circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start”
Character is often misunderstood, overlooked or written off as old fashioned; but for those in the know, it’s the No. 1 influence on your career. Even more important than skills or qualifications. Exploring your character could well be the key to help unlock your Early Career path.
Why character really counts in your career
If all the evidence from human history, inspirational people and your own experience wasn’t enough, then consider what Positive Psychology and Character Science reveals: you’ll be at your best and happiest in a career where your character strengths are in regular use and where you can also work on your weaknesses. It is that balance of using your strengths and being able to grow that is the career sweet spot. As Careers Advisers, we spend our time with clients who are searching for that sweet spot.
