Today on the Dads with Daughters Podcast, we bring you father of five, past New York Life Insurance Company President and author, Fred Sievert. We talk to Fred Sievert about fatherhood, living in a multi-generational home, and how to support our daughters in their careers.
We also talk to Fred Sievert about his brand new book, Fast Starting a Career of Consequence.
Fred Sievert is the former president of New York Life Insurance Company and in his work he gained a ton of experience that allowed him to better understand career transitions. In his book, Sievert shares five biblical principles chosen to help individuals create a strong foundation for fulfillment in their careers. Then, he elaborates on 10 practical and proven strategies that individuals can implement immediately to gain visibility and early success as they enter the workforce for the first time, move to a new company or re-enter the workforce after a period of absence.
“The advice applies equally well to small or large corporations and to entrepreneurial ventures,” he said, adding, “The book was inspired by a request for advice from my daughter on how to be identified as a high potential employee and advance her career as she languished in an entry-level position at her large global company. The advice proved to be very effective as she was rapidly promoted into positions with greater levels of responsibility.”
Chapters explore universal career-relevant topics such as: Demonstrating Commitment; Embracing the Company’s Vision and Mission; Developing Cultural and Organizational Awareness; Understanding the Financial Underpinnings of the Business; Demonstrating Strategic Thinking Capability; Over-preparing for Every Meeting; Making Every Presentation a Command Performance; and Balancing Faith, Family and Career.
