Bake Off Lessons

October 29, 2020 1:59 pm Published by

Watching The Great British Bake Off is like having the perfect cuppa in front of a warm fire. Never has a show been more needed than 2020. So given I’m in the recruitment business, I thought it would be fun to see if there are any work lessons we can learn from watching.

Here are my suggestions:

  1. Substance counts for more than appearance.

If your bake looks gorgeous, but the sponge is dry, you won’t be winning Star Baker. Same goes for your work. Put your efforts into valuable content, not a flashy presentation.

  1. Personality matters

We all love the eccentric, quirky characters. This year Rowan with his cups of tea won many fans. So don’t hide behind a work persona, be your true self so others can relate and get to know you.

  1. See it through to the end.

So many baking disasters along the way turn into winning cakes. So whether it’s an unproved dough or an email disaster, stick with it and everything may work out better than you expected.

  1. Work with your competition, not against them.

Sure, you’re competing with others, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t support them and offer help when you can. We can all learn a lot from each other.
