Words from the Wise 46: St Francis De Sales

This is a series of posts that uses a quotation by a famous person from history to make a point about career management. Take a moment to reflect and see whether you can start using this wisdom as you start managing your career.

Saint Francis said:

“Nothing is so strong as gentleness. Nothing is so gentle as real strength.”

Proteus Career Management says:

“If one of your career aims is to be a gentleman or gentlewoman, as well as a gentle man or a gentle woman, you’ll probably go far.”

The lesson? “Be a person of integrity.”

Dr Mike Warren says:

In an ideal world we would all be reliable and honourable whilst also being tender and kind and yet emotionally strong with a worthwhile purpose behind our every action. It is a difficult path towards which to strive, but the nearer we approach this ideal the more rewarding our lives and careers will be. Success is never guaranteed, but certainly as an interviewee, if our answers illustrate these characteristics then the probability of success is increased dramatically!
