In Three Words – What You Do

I found this idea for discussion in a LinkedIn group and I was curious to hear what my readers and this community would say.

How would you describe what you do professionally in just three words?

My first thought was “help people improve.”  What three words first come to mind for you? Please add a comment to this post.

  1. In three words, the most thing I usually do is to “make people happy”. If they become happy then I will become happy also. What you do to others will also be done to you in return.

  2. Daily Continuing Education,

    While the work is professional, iterative, and not designed to be an education; I approach it as such…

  3. Engage people.

    I think this engagement is critical to all Lean initiatives, from the smallest to the largest. I’m harking back to Spears’ discussion of continuous learning (which I like better than continuous improvement because it has the right center of gravity). The idea of engagement also highlights the eighth waste, of human potential.
