Megan Leonhardt 2021年09月21日
这些年轻的精英分享了从朋友、家人和导师那里得到的最好的职场建议。

在今年的《财富》全球40位40岁以下商界领袖榜单里,你会发现他们当中有人赢得过奥运金牌,有人帮助研发过救命疫苗,有人创办过企业,有人领导过政治变革,有人帮助推动了公司的发展。究竟是什么帮助他们取得了今天的成就?我们请他们分享了从朋友、家人和导师那里得到的最好的职场建议。下面的13条建议教你如何在寻找职业方向、实现个人目标以及规划正确的职业道路。

如何在职场上取得成功

阿基拉·拉曼,39岁,高盛集团(Goldman Sachs)投资银行部首席运营官

拉曼说,在她早期的职业生涯中,一位导师建议她不要太关注简历网站上的工作机会和工作技能,而要更多关注导师和其提供的工作机会。“根据我的经验,和我一起工作的人对我的职业生涯影响最大。在金融和自然资源管理部门,极具才能的领导者和导师通过给我不同的挑战提升了我的职业技能,丰富了我的职场经验。”

埃琳娜·科沃齐克,34岁,思爱普(SAP)首席信任官

“我得到的最好的职业建议来自我的父亲,他教导我要通过我的工作为他人创造价值。”科沃齐克说。“我一直想解决单独一个团队无法解决的问题。现在我可以为解决最复杂的问题做出贡献了。”

豪伊·刘,32岁,Airtable 联合创始人兼首席执行官

豪伊·刘给出的最好的职业建议是什么?是他五年级游泳教练的命令:再快一点。“虽然现在这条建议对指导我游泳来说,已经用处不大了。但我已经开始意识到在商业竞赛中速度是多么重要。这对我们的团队非常重要,因为我们需要推动商业计划迅速执行——在竞争日益激烈的市场中,我们必须承担可估量的风险,并迅速采取行动。”

凯勒·里那杜,34岁,Zipline联合创始人兼首席执行官

人们告诉孩子们要专注于他们感兴趣的事情。“这是个馊主意。”里纳杜说。“我们所热爱的事情很少给我们带来工作机会。相反,重要的是,在生命结束之前想清楚你想对这个世界产生什么样的影响,然后专注于建立你需要的技能来对改变世界。这是我爸爸的建议。”

拉吉·坎纳潘,30岁,青年美国基金会(Young America’s Foundation)副总裁兼理事

坎纳潘的最佳职业建议是:“为你敬佩的人工作。”坎纳潘说,他并不是从别人那里得到这条建议,而是从沃伦·巴菲特的伯克希尔-哈撒韦公司(Berkshire Hathaway)年度股东信、他的演讲和其他著作中读到的。“直到我意识到我已经在与我钦佩的团队青年美国基金会的合作,我才明白和我尊敬的人在一起会让我的工作和日常生活更加充实。这让我们工作的每一天都变得轻松有趣。”

如何发挥个人潜能

西蒙·拜尔斯,24岁,体操运动员

“我的父母一直鼓励我成为最好的西蒙,永远不要怀疑自己。”

艾莉森·怀特诺,39岁,Seventh Generation首席执行官

一位职业教练曾经告诉怀特诺:“在职业生涯的不同‘赛季’,将80%的精力投入到工作中,这是可行的。但如果你一直以110%的速度前进,你将会筋疲力尽,失去一些让你感到特别的东西。”怀特诺说,偶尔让自己休息一下,对她而言很重要。

凯特·勃兰特,36岁,谷歌(Google)首席可持续发展官

勃兰特说,从很小的时候起,她的父母就鼓励她选择一种职业,能够让她在离开时的世界比她初创业时要更好。勃兰特告诉《财富》杂志:“我打算把同样的建议告诉我的女儿。”

杰里米·乔伊斯,29岁,Black People Eats创始人

乔伊斯得到的最好的职业建议,来自他的导师杰森·托马斯。托马斯告诉乔伊斯,他之所以觉得生活不充实,是因为他没有活在自己的目标中。“那一刻点燃了我的生命之火,让我深入思考我来到这个世界上是为了做什么。”乔伊斯说,“他教会了我如何服务,这也为我成为企业家奠定了基础。所谓工作,不是你要做的事情,而是你要成为的人。当我发现自己的目标时,我才成为了我自己。”

特里娜·斯皮尔,38岁,FIGS联合创始人和联席首席执行官

“我的联合创始人和联席首席执行官希瑟·哈森明智地教导我,不要被别人的想法分心,而要专注于最符合你的目标的事情。”斯皮尔说。

如何建设更美好未来

本杰明·巴克尔,23岁,美国保护联盟(American Conservation Coalition)创始人兼总裁

“我的父母在我的生活中一直是最棒的支持者。他们总是告诉我,如果我要开始‘做什么事情’,就在年轻的时候去做。”巴尔克告诉《财富》杂志。他还提到,他的父母会鼓励他去实现任何他想要的,年轻不成问题,甚至成为了一个优势。“年轻人不仅精力充沛,还带来了新的想法、不同的价值观和无法比拟的激情。”

费姬·西莫,35岁,Instacart首席执行官

“黛安·冯芙丝汀宝和我分享过,她每天都努力把两个互相帮助的人联系在一起。”西莫说,“我也开始这么做了。除了为这些联系的力量所带来的种种神奇感到惊讶之外,它也为我自己的职业生涯带来了许多意外的机会。”

汉密尔顿·贝内特,36岁,Moderna疫苗分配与合作伙伴高级总监

当谈到职业建议时,贝内特总是想起她曾经在人生重要时刻听到过的一句歌词:“当你活着的时候,请对地球做出微小的改变。”她说,当你刚开始工作,试图界定自己在这个世界上的位置时,可能会感到畏惧和怯步。“其实,与其被可能性和期望淹没,不如做出微小的改变。我向你保证,世界会因此变得更美好。”(财富中文网)

In this year’s class of Fortune’s 40 under 40, you'll find leaders who have won Olympic gold medals, helped developed lifesaving vaccines, launched pivotal businesses, led policy changes, and helped drive their companies forward. What helped them to get where they are today? We asked them to tell us about the best career advice they ever received from friends, family, and mentors. Here are their top 13 tips on how to navigate the workplace, meet your goals, and chart the right career path.

Advice for succeeding in the workplace…

Akila Raman, 39, chief operating officer of the investment banking division at Goldman Sachs

Early in her career, Raman said, a mentor gave her the advice to focus less on what jobs and skills will look best on a résumé and more on the mentors and opportunities afforded. “In my experience who I worked for—and with—has had the greatest impact on my career. The incredible leaders and mentors in the financing and natural resources groups challenged me with stretch assignments and broadened my skill sets through varied experiences.”

Elena Kvochko, 34, chief trust officer at SAP

“The best career advice I received was from my dad, who taught me to create value to others through my work,” Kvochko said. “I have always wanted to work on issues that no one organization can solve alone. Now I am in a position to contribute to solving most complex issues.”

Howie Liu, 32, cofounder and CEO of Airtable

The best career advice for Liu? A mandate from his fifth grade swim coach: Go faster. “While it’s not applicable for me in the pool these days, I’ve come to appreciate how much speed matters in business. This has been incredibly relevant for our teams as we push to execute quickly—in increasingly competitive markets, we have to take calculated risks and move fast.”

Keller Rinaudo, 34, cofounder and CEO of Zipline

People tell kids to focus on what they are passionate about. That’s bad advice, Rinaudo said. “A lot of things we are passionate about won’t get us jobs. Instead, figure out what kind of impact you want to have on the world before you die—then focus on building the skills you need to make that impact. This was my dad’s advice.”

Raj Kannappan, 30, vice president and director of the Center for Entrepreneurship & Free Enterprise at the Young America’s Foundation

Kannappan's best career advice: "Work for someone whom you admire.” Kannappan says he didn’t so much get this piece of advice from someone, as he read it in Warren Buffett’s annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholder letters, his speeches, and other writings. “It didn’t click until I realized I was already working with a team I admired at Young America’s Foundation. Spending time with people I respect makes work and daily life more fulfilling. It makes it that much easier to start each day and have a whole lot of fun.”

Advice for achieving your personal best…

Simone Biles, 24, gymnast

“My parents have always encouraged me to be the best Simone I can be, and to never doubt myself.”

Alison Whritenour, 39, CEO of Seventh Generation

A career coach once told Whritenour: "It’s okay to operate at your 80% at different seasons of your career. If you continue to go at 110% all the time you will burn out and lose what makes you special." Whritenour said it was important for her to hear that it’s okay to give yourself a break every once in a while.

Kate Brandt, 36, chief sustainability officer at Google

From an early age, Brandt said, her parents encouraged her to pick a career that enabled her to leave the world better than she found it. “I plan to share this same advice with my daughter,” Brandt told Fortune.

Jeremy E. Joyce, 29, founder of Black People Eats

The best career advice that Joyce received was from his mentor Jason Thomas, who told Joyce the reason his life felt unfulfilled was that he was not living in his purpose. “The moment sparked a fire in my life that allowed me to dig deep into what is it that I was put on this earth to do,” Joyce said. “That taught me how to serve, which gave me the foundation for becoming an entrepreneur. Work is not something you do—it is something you become. I became myself as I discovered my purpose.”

Trina Spear, 38, cofounder and co-CEO of FIGS

“My cofounder and co-CEO Heather Hasson wisely taught me not to get distracted by what others think and to instead stay intensely focused on what’s most aligned with your purpose,” Spear said.

Advice on building a better future for yourself and others…

Benjamin Backer, 23, president and founder of the American Conservation Coalition

“My parents, who have always been an incredible support system in my life, always told me that if I was going to start ‘something,’ do it when I was young,” Backer told Fortune, adding that his parents encouraged him to accomplish anything he wanted, regardless of his age, and that being young actually was an advantage. “Not only do young people often have relentless energy, but we bring new ideas, different values, and unparalleled passion.”

Fidji Simo, 35, CEO of Instacart

“Diane von Furstenberg shared with me that every day she makes it a point to connect two people who can help each other,” Simo said. “I started doing that, and in addition to being amazed by all the magical things that can result from the power of these connections, it has also resulted in many serendipitous opportunities for my own career as well.”

Hamilton Bennett, 36, senior director of vaccine access and partnerships at Moderna

When it comes to career advice, Bennett always thinks about a song lyric she heard at an important time in her life: “While you’re alive, make tiny changes to the earth.” When you are just starting out and trying to define your space in the world, it can be daunting, Bennett said. “Rather than be overwhelmed by possibility and expectation, make tiny changes. I promise you the world will be better for it.”
