Few of us have role models or leaders we look up to; but today I was re-united with a former co-worker and friend and my ultimate role model. We have something unique in common we both performed the same job role ….but our jobs were 15 years apart. Many of you know from reading my blog – that I am currently in my dream job at work. I love my job, I won’t lie it is hard but it is about building relationships, having teamwork and treating all with respect.
Frankie Walters is one of those special people, with a genuine need to develop and pass on what she learned over her 24 year career. She has coached numerous clients and teaches professional image and workplace etiquette.
One of her favorite quotes is….”the best jobs don’t always go to the most skilled applicants but to those who present their qualifications the best.” Her book is called, “Country Values…City Wise”, Lessons in personal development and workplace savvy.
Today was an incredible day to be able to have lunch with Frankie and spend some time with her, I can honestly say she is one of my heroes.
