my internal audit function
To be honest, since my childhood I have a shy and introvert attitude. Despite the fact that i love to be with others people, I was afraid to be in front of the crowd. As example, i got a great fear to do publicly exposed activities or tasks. However reading about some success stories, I knew that I have to overcome this fear to expose my idea and to be able to gain influence over my target.
Starting for this point, I took the decision to handle this issue, and as a way for deal with it, i rejoined a military academy for my high school classes. And there, they taught us that self-confidence not egocentrism is the key to unlock any social skills. Thus, already at the age of 10, I started to be involved in uncomfortable physical and psychological exercises which were pushing me beyond my limits again and again until I succeed. Then I started developing self-esteem not because of my ego, but base on my experiences teaching me that with repeated training and consistent efforts i can do almost anything. I thus become conscious of my strengths and my area of improvement. Thus, better aware of my strengths and area of improvement, my self-esteem started to growth overshadowing my shy attitude.
With more self-confidence, I acquired quicker than before the other military soft skills as discipline, team spirit, and integrity and team management. I will remember always one quote from this adventure: " In a team 1+1=1", that is means:
-whatever the difference you may have in a group your voice have to sound as only one
-every body is accountable for the failure of somebody and we are all responsible of the growth of the others members
- the success is collective
Worth from these 7 years military experience, I started in university to take leadership position. As example, I took the lead of our students association and we succeed to re-impulse and social dynamic by the reopening of annual social gala with our alumni.
In my professional, I have been recognized for my good team spirit and mentoring skills. Thus, as when I worked in the bank, I was the main people in charge of the trainee and I get good record track for this activity, 6/7 of my coachees have been retained by the company after their internship.
Currently, i am the youngest mid-level manager in our group. I take advantage of this position and of my internal audit function, to give the company better orientation for its activities. As example, I initiate aperiodic committee in order to handle some critical fuel supply issues we faced. Since this committee have been implemented, the management found collectively the way to improve our fuel supply chain process and we do not face anymore any fuel shortage.
