“If you want to get noticed in your organization, be someone who can solve problems.”
It’s your first day at a new company. You have yet to learn the ropes and you need to get yourself acquainted with the basics. You’re not ready to make an immediate impact on your organization, right? Wrong. John Ruth, CEO of ABN AMRO Clearing Chicago, believes that everyone in an organization – from interns and new hires to the company’s established veterans – can make a positive impact. Ruth says that problem solvers are extremely important assets for an organization. Those are the people who get noticed quickly and can unlock more possibilities in their career advancement. Along with managing career development, Ruth discusses the importance of adapting to change and what it can mean for not just an individual, but an entire organization.
