Lala is not any more beautiful than her colleagues. She is not smarter than her peers. However, during eight years of working, she has gotten continuous promotions and finally became the HR executive of her company.
Du Lala's story is based on the real experiences of author, Li Ke, who has been working ten years in the China office of a big multi-national company. She wrote the book with the hope of sharing her ideas to help those with big career dreams succeed under heavy work pressure.
Some people say that for Chinese youth, Du Lala's story is even more meaningful than the story of Bill Gates, as it shows the reality of many young Chinese office workers. After the movie Go Lala Go was released, it attracted tens of thousands of audiences to the theatre to watch the story of the successful career woman.
The story recounts Lala's career path from a sales assistant to the HR executive of a big company. Let's look at three examples of Du Lala's exceptional office habits.
As a new-comer to her company, she pays attention to the details. She uses her spare time to collect all the information about her company's development and keeps track of it in a notebook. This is just a tiny thing that anyone could do. However, only Du Lala took the extra 1)initiative, and ultimately made a good impression on the manager of the company.
“Re-decorating” is the last word the administrative supervisor wants to hear. The administrative supervisor has to keep a tight budget, and redecorating in only three days seems impossible. However, Lala bravely takes on the difficult task, which no one else wants to do, even the person who is in charge of it. She has not only successfully finished the job but also saved money.
She knows how to deal with pressure when it's about to drive her mad. Eating chocolate, going on shopping 2)sprees, and working out are all acceptable ways for her to ease stress.
Lala is just one successful example, and her story has started a heated discussion of how to get a promotion at one's workplace. Different people have different opinions.
Zhang Qingqing, an employee at Focus Holdings Limited of Hong Kong, who has just gotten a promotion, says the most important thing is the work attitude.
“No matter what kind of job you are doing, you should take it as a precious opportunity. You must take full responsibility for your duties so you won't add any heavy pressure to your company. The second thing you can do is to create your own value in your working company. So, first, do not make any trouble. Second, make something that only you can do it. ”
Success is not that easy to get. You have to be patient enough to wait, you have to be smart enough to learn, and you have to be brave enough to challenge yourself. But one thing is certain, you have to be loyal to your dream and try your best. Maybe the next Du Lala is you.
