WORK IS A PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED. We are promoted or hired because we can solve problems for our employers. Do you know what problems you can solve?
Businesses are created, thrive, and survive based on how well their products solve problems for their customers. Businesses have a process for developing their products. That process is the Product Development Process. You can apply this process to develop a product called YOU, the solutions you can offer to solve problems for your current or potential customers. Those customers are your employers.
Why would anyone want to hire or promote you? What do you sell?
Whether you work in a traditional office environment, in the field, or from home, you work each day to solve a problem or satisfy a need for your “customer”. That customer is your employer. WORK IS A PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED.
Solving problems is the reason why we are employed.
What you sold during your job interview and what you deliver each day is your “personal product”. Your personal product is your skills, capabilities, and strengths.
