As new college grads enter the “real world,” they’re often bombarded with advice — some good, some bad. But when super-successful people dispense a pearl of wisdom, it’s usually worth listening to.
Singh, who was poached by Google in 2010 from Oracle, where he was also an executive, shared two things he thinks every new graduate should know.
First, he says: “They grow up learning a few things about how to approach problems. The piece that they possibly miss is that, once you’re in the real world, it’s all about other people. Giving is more important than your point of view.”
The other thing 20-somethings need to know: How to get along and work together.
This, he says, “is the difference between frontline managers and leaders.
“Leaders find a way to work together. They find a solution. There’s always a way, and you’ve got to find what that way is.”
