|Spirited Away – Give Me a Job|
I recently watched the animated feature, Spirited Away (2001, Miyazaki) and found its story beautiful on multiple levels.
Much like entering a new office culture or industry, we must have the ability to use our courage and hard work to redeem ourselves and demonstrate the value we can add.
There’s a lot to learn even from the short clip above on surviving intimidating ‘tests’ and being driven to succeed at a new job in a “new world”.
If you want to see an example of surviving the first few days of a new job, you MUST see Spirited Away.
Big lessons learned:
- Fostering goodwill
- Building relationships
- Following directions
- Honesty & Integrity
- etc…(caring for a dying dragon…)
If you do watch it, please provide your feedback on how the movie touches on the above themes.
