When someone is a leader, it is not something they should take lightly, as a lot of people look at them and they depend on them to lead by example. They might be too shy to approach the leader or a person in an authoritative position, but in reality, it is the best thing they can do. There is a lot to be gained and a lot to be learned by talking to someone with experience. The best thing for a young person is to spend time with someone that has the knowledge and someone that has been there. Nine times out of ten, they enjoy the chance to give back to someone and offer wisdom their way.
After all, they remember what it was like when they were starting out and how they leaned on others for advice. People are not born with these types of skills and this type of information. They learn it from others by asking questions and being a little bold. There is nothing wrong with being bold and unafraid. People admire that, as a matter of fact. John Goullet looks for that, as he respects people that take the bull by the horns and come up to ask for advice on an IT matter.
After all, he ran his own company, Info Technologies, which was put in charge of finding solutions for Fortune 500 companies. Now, he is the principal executive of Diversant, a company that is all about being empowered by difference, as stated on their website. Anyone that has ever gotten ahead in life has gotten ahead because they had the guts to get ahead and they had the guts to after it. There is a whole big world out there and it is waiting for IT professionals. John Goullet knows what the Fortune 500 companies want and what they don’t want.
That is why he is at the right place at Diversant. He is an invaluable source of information and most of all, he loves the job. That has never wavered for him throughout all of these years and the ups and downs.
