The Life Winners aims to help young professionals develop and showcase their skills to foster productivity, diversity and team cohesion in the workplace
Skilled young professionals are key to supporting growth and bolstering regional economics. We are looking for skilled, creative individuals to grow with us - young professionals that are exceptionally talented with a variety of achievements, and those whose attitude and values remain remarkable under all circumstances. In other words, those who can, in one way or another, become role models for the new generation. Eventually, through our interviews, we aim to bring up perspectives and life stories that teach something new and will motivate you to keep going.
What do we consider an inspiring young professional?
Being a lifelong learner is something that we always encourage and promote. Life learning enhances personal development, active citizenship, competitiveness and employability. Therefore, it is essential for us for a young professional to be aware of the importance of an ongoing, self-motivated pursuit of knowledge in his/her subject field.
High emotional intelligence
Developing your EQ skills is essential to young professional success today. High self-awareness, constantly challenging your emotions, understanding others’ emotions, and learning how to motivate yourself are some of things that a life winner should have.
High communication skills
Communication skills are not just being able to speak and write. Communication is the key to understanding and enhancing the strategic acts in an organisation, both internally and externally. Therefore, we consider these skills essential for someone to be considered an inspiring individual.
Integrity & Personality
For us, a life winner must act based on strong moral principles and have qualities that distinguish him/her from any other young professional. We strongly believe that individuals should cultivate personal integrity, to be utterly transparent and completely accountable.
Are you a young professional that fit with these characteristics?
What are the two main challenges that young professionals face?
As a young professional, your network most likely is smaller compared to professionals who has been in the workforce for years. Although networking can be a daunting task for any young professional it is essential for young professionals to meet individuals that will help them drive their career forward.
Academic Vs Professional practicality
Having a university degree doesn’t mean that you are ready to work straight away. The material covered at university is usually purely academic and things in practice are different. It is a big challenge and it is essential for today’s workplace to make the transition from academic theory to practice.
