Pursue Growth and Learning

At Zappos, we think it’s important for employees to grow both personally and professionally. It’s important to constantly challenge and stretch yourself, and not be stuck in a job where you don’t feel like you are growing or learning.

We believe that inside every employee is more potential than even the employee himself/herself realizes.  Our goal is to help employees unlock that potential.  But it has to be a joint effort: You have to want to challenge and stretch yourself in order for it to happen…

Ask yourself:

  1. How do you grow personally?
  2. How do you grow professionally?
  3. Are you a better person today than you were yesterday?
  4. How do you get your co-workers and direct reports to grow personally?
  5. How do you get your co-workers and direct reports to grow professionally?
  6. How do you challenge and stretch yourself?
  7. Are you learning something everyday?
  8. What is your vision for where you want to go?
