Even The Best Can Be Better!
Hi, again! I hope your past couple of weeks have been wonderful!
Just to dive right in to it . . . Today the Buying and Design Team of SELECTED Femme/Homme had a TEAM DAY on Campus! You’re wondering what is Campus?! In 21 characters, Campus is home to the IBT Tryouts :), the site for educational training’s for BESTSELLER, with amazing chefs that cook divine food!
Back on topic :)… the joy of being a part of this eight-hour event today was the ability to surround myself with knowledge-sharing people. As much as I wanted to give my thoughts as a
Trainee (which is always welcomed), I felt today was the perfect day to “sponge learn”. Here are few thoughts and take-a-ways absorbed , that may help you once you join your future brand and team:
1. Communication – is a three-way connection— A. My perspective, B. Your Perspective of interest, and C. The Common Topic: The IBT Program Experience, which naturally grows relationships! Communication requires respect for each others perspectives.
2. Even The Best Can Be Better – this golden nugget means exactly the way you read it! This will always guide my today, and challenge my tomorrow. I hope it does the same for you.
3. Sustainability – one of my motivations for applying for the IBT Program in 2016! BESTSELLER’s vision is “to be among the most sustainable high street fashion companies” by implementing 20By20 ( meaning 20 Goals- targeting areas like, Supply Chain Management, Workers Rights (in Supplier factories), Communities, Products, and Environment & Chemicals by 2020)! Future fashion = sustainability awareness and action.
By far, my favorite take-a-way today was “Even The Best Can Be Better.” This embraces the other two areas above, which challenges me to better my communication style with others within this diverse workplace: while, learning how I can help make our sustainability goals a reality as a Buying trainee. Moreover, I really enjoyed another day of being a student! The learning never stops. 🙂
More to come, so just let me know if you have any more questions, comments, or just want to know more specifics. I’m here for you!
