Finding the right job where you could utterly fit in is a challenge most of us have faced even once in our lives. You could stay in the same job with the same people for countless years and still feel as though a jigsaw puzzle with a missing piece. This is what Corazon had finally overcome 10 years ago.
Although difficult, Cora didn’t let this setback break down her walls but rather used it as an anchor to sail the seas stronger than ever. And as the saying goes, after every storm comes the calm, and then the rainbow. In 2008, just after a yearlong stay in the company, she was recognized as the “Medical Representative of the Year” due to her unceasing efforts. It was also then that she received one of the greatest gifts of her life.
Cora was passionately tied with her job that even the lure of a lucrative career as a district manager was not in her intentions. She was already happy and contented with what she had, and she could not ask for anything more. But God had written a different plot in her storyline, and in His will, she was destined for better career growth. She even wrote best man speeches in the sidelines.
The courage it took her to accept the promotion offer was a one thing, but becoming a district manager was another. The transition came off rougher than had hoped as she once again struggled to achieve the revenue target. But unlike before when she only had to think about herself, Cora now holds responsible for her people’s sales. Hence, she makes sure to strive harder in being a good leader that will pave the way for more opportunities for her district. She likewise keeps it apparent that her people are well-supervised and well-guided on a daily basis.
Her strict set of rules sometimes inflicts issues between her and her subordinates. But this is also what makes them more competent which equips them to accomplish tasks better.
In a one year span, Cora has learned to love her new job more and found great reward in her people. For her, nothing equates the feeling of being a role model that inspires and teaches others to become a better version of themselves, not just as career-driven people but also as kind-hearted individuals.
