Posted on Updated on

Over the weekend, I was privileged to attend a career conference which had the MD of Stanbic IBTC, Mr Yinka Sanni as one of the speakers.

The very unassuming CEO shared five career success tips from his personal experience which I’d love to share with you guys, so, get out your pens…..

1. Do more than you are paid for. Don’t just put up an average performance at work when you can actually do more.

2. Make yourself available as your organisation or company changes or evolves. In other words,  grow with the company. Don’t just change jobs because the company is changing. You must have staying power. He explained that most of the positions he has held in the bank before becoming the managing director were offered to him because he was available. He also explained that you can adapt to any position or job role. Limitations are only in the mind.

3. As you work, make sure you specialise and become an expert in a specific field. This gives you the edge and also gives you opportunity to assume leadership roles.

4. Continue to update and improve yourself through training and exposure because opportunities will always arise.

5. Always place the interest of the company or organization first before yours. Don’t be selfish or self – centred.  Serious companies will always fish out laid – back or unproductive staff.

In my opinion, it was so nice of him to share these secrets absolutely free when people actually pay through their nose in other conferences and training seminars just to learn from such industry moguls.

Also nice was the fact that about 10 companies were available to interview and recruit job – seekers immediately after the conference.
