A ROUGH BEGINNING
Aidil acknowledges that his journey with Bettr has not been completely smooth-sailing. In the beginning, he felt left behind, as he could not keep up with his batch mates’ progress. From our Emotional Intelligence (EQ) training, Aidil worked on his attitude, improving his discipline and patience. Although he sees the benefits of EQ training, he admits that it is not easy to control his feelings from time to time.
"I was worried initially, but it got better as I picked up new skills along the way. It’s like once you start learning something, you’ll want to continue learning more."
During his internship, he also struggled with his punctuality. He found it difficult to wake up early and be on time for his 8am shift. Preferring to prepare beverages on the back end, he was uncertain and not confident facing customers.
"I'm still not comfortable with facing customers. I'll try to step out of my comfort zone someday, when I feel that I've improved."
