Employee Spotlight

Paul Kim, Manager

What do you do in your day-to-day role?

Most of my time is spent in the role of an Engagement Manager (EM) – I’m responsible for both projects and relationships across multiple clients. Day-to-day, I facilitate work to make sure the projects I own run smoothly. Some days, this means I’m on the phone a lot (I’m full-time remote) or setting up meetings to get the right people working together. Other days, I’m digging deep into a specific work product with one of my Educe team members. Every day is different.

What skills does your current job require? How have you mastered those skills?

For an EM, it’s all about prioritization – knowing the difference between urgent and important things, and then allocating your time appropriately. I haven’t mastered this skill entirely, but tools like the Eisenhower Box have helped me visualize where my time is going.

What advice would you give to others working in Educe Group about how to succeed in the organization?

Get a solid base of knowledge under you before trying to advance to greater responsibilities. Ask your peers what they think you’re good at, and where you could improve. Seek out stretch goals from your manager or mentor every year. Take the time to recognize and thank your peers publicly for a job well done.
