It is sort of settled as a routine to have a talk over a coffee with my supervisor and other colleagues after all the work is finished for the day. My supervisor, Stellar, who gives me a lot of useful tips on not only radio broadcasting but life in general, told me some inspiring chronicles.
1. Being a proactive vs passive employee -who is more competitive in labor market?
She said: always be prepared to learn more. Literally, haunt a person who can provide you a complete understanding of how things in general work in the media industry as well as a corporation among the team is implemented. Do not feel satisfied from carrying out only what is told by of whom I’m under direct control.
2. When you are pressed for time
She said: in the situation where you are always running out of time in finalizing and tend to end up with a feeling of being unorganized, you should start to learn how to prioritize things. In live broadcasting, you must not make mistakes. ‘Flexibility’ essential in this sort of environment where unexpected surprises can always happen won’t just occur if I’m not prepared. Having thought of doing things in an alternative way is required in case the way you normally do isn’t working all of a sudden or your senior officer thinks it inappropriate.
3. Evaluate others’ performance and reflect on my implementation
She said) if I only try to observe people who always do the excellent job, I may get demotivated as how hard they tried to reach where they are now seems a bit unrealistic and fancy for me. Therefore, in no doubt, I may need to keep an eye on the mistakes my colleagues make so as to learn a lesson and reflect on my accomplishment.
