She Earned Four Promotions This Year — How Did She Do It?

ncg-inc-gabbyNCG, Inc in Trumbull, CT is the poster company for the phrase “behind every good company is a great administrator.” Okay, so maybe we made up that phrase… but it is completely fitting when you have someone like Gabrielle Lofaro on the front line of your administration, human resources and recruiting! In just a short 10 month period of time, she has just earned her FOURTH, yes FOURTH, promotion with the company. We caught up with Gabby to learn more about her success and the moves she’s making within her career.

Four promotions in under a year…seriously, how have you done it?

What really keeps me motivated is having clear goals and knowing what opportunities lie ahead! Working at NCG, Inc I know that I’m not stuck in a dead end job, I have a career path! And by reaching my goals on this career path it will allow me to create a life that I’ve always wanted. I also have a team that backs me up 100%. Jolene, Management and all of the guys in the office have always pushed me to be great. It really makes a difference when other people want to see you succeed just as much as YOU want to succeed.

You mentioned that with NCG, Inc you actually have a career path. What do you think is the difference between a job and a career?

To me, a job is something you go to everyday to simply make money. There is no future (or a very limited one), there is nothing exciting about “what comes next”, and you’re ultimately there just to survive. A career on the other hand, is something that makes you excited to get up in the morning… to move up and advance within. It is something that has the opportunity to change your life for the better. There’s growth, and you know that you are not wasting your time being there because every day gets you closer to your goal! One my first interview with NCG, Inc I recall having to fill out a questionnaire about what I was looking for in a position and I actually wrote, “I do not want another day to day job, but rather a career that I can be happy with!” And guess what? I found it.

And there you have it. That, folks, is how you get promoted 4 times in less than one year. Congratulations on all of your success, Gabby; and on behalf of the entire NCG, Inc team we want to thank you for all that you do.

Through the eyes of a new team member: NCG, Inc

A new employee of NCG, Inc reviews his experience with our Trumbull firm.

NCG, Inc operates on the philosophy that each team member should have the ability to prove him or herself on the job and earn advancement opportunities based upon proven performance. This gives managers a unique perspective because they have ‘seen and done it all.’ It also provides them with a solid foundation of skills that will help guide them as they continue to grow in their careers.

Here in our Connecticut-based firm, there is no seniority; there’s only performance — a sigh of relief for those who have been turned down by numerous companies because they did not have the required experience.

Chris Hurylovich, for example, has only been working with NCG, Inc for three months -– yet, he has quickly proven himself as an asset to the Trumbull team. We caught up with Chris to pick his brain about his experience of working with the company and here’s what we found out!

Can you tell us about your manager at NCG, Inc? What’s it like working for her?

First and foremost, I must say that I’ve been blessed and privileged to be working with Jolene. She’s by far one of the most knowledgeable and inspiring people I have gotten to know to date. The things she values are fairly simple: she wants to see her colleagues be successful and live a great life, just as much as she wants that for herself. Her personality is great and she’s very witty and comical with the perfect balance of professional relationships as well. I would have to say all of her corny jokes make me laugh on a day to day basis. The best part about working with her is that every day I’m learning something new in both personal and professional ways.

How about your co-workers, what is the team dynamic like?

I work with absolutely amazing people; they are so inspired and ambitious. NCG, Inc is a breeding ground for success and everybody is always willing to lend a helping hand. Success breeds success, that’s the mantra here.

NCG, Inc puts a large emphasis on doing things together as a team outside of the office. What have been some of your favorite events and why do you think they are important?

So far, have I have definitely enjoyed the times when we played kickball and volleyball after work. I’m very competitive so some office competition is always a blast. Our office get togethers are a great way for our team to bond and really build relationships in a less professional setting. It’s also a great way to unwind.

Thanks, Chris, for sharing this great feedback!

Northeast Consulting Group, Inc. Reviews: The Secrets to Success!

Northeast Consulting Group, Inc. knows that the biggest question that people have is how to find success. So, we reviewed this article from Forbes about the secrets to finding it! Most of the gals that people set in life are centered around finding success in their personal lives as well as their business lives. These two things tend to depend upon each other.   Personal success supports and reinforces professional success. Professional success reinforces personal success. Together, they reinforce life’s most important pursuit – happiness. So how do we find it?

 

1. The Law of Attraction

The secret to success is positive thoughts. Your thoughts are a magnet that brings things your way and helps you to identify and externalize your inner strengths and capabilities. Put good things in your mind and they will happen!

 

2. The Element

Find out what you excel in. That’s where you have to position yourself. You need to find your own “element,” your passion. The right occupation that matches your inner strengths and capabilities will help you bring out the best in yourself.

 

3. Learn how to fail

You have to be willing to try, fail, try again, fail again, and still get back up. Understand that luck will play a part in your success, being in the right place at the right time can make a world of difference. “There is plenty of luck to go around; you just need to keep your head raised until it’s your turn,” says Scott Adams. “If you drill down to any success story, you always discover that luck was a huge part of it. You cannot control luck, but you can move from a game with bad odds to one with better odds. You can make it easier for luck to find you. The most useful thing you can do is stay in the game. If your current get-rich project fails, take what you learned and try something else. Keep repeating until something lucky happens.”

 

4. Law of Large Numbers

This states that you give yourself enough times to take advantage of success. Give yourself enough opportunity with equal chance for each possible outcome to occur. Your turn to succeed won’t work unless you can execute and stay away from harmful behavior that destroys your progress.

 

5. Get your priorities right

Use your resources wisely, stay focused, and develop the right relationships. Don’t be greedy and don’t be complacent.
