Think you’re in need of a change in employment? Maybe you’re just in need of a little inspiration to stay right where you are. Energize your interest, create job satisfaction and advance your career with the following recommendations:
START YOUR WORKDAY EARLY
Being at work even 15 minutes before the start of your day gives you time to settle in and review your day’s tasks and meetings.
PREPARE, ORGANIZE AND FOCUS
Plan out your day, scheduling blocks of time to work on specific projects and assignments. Give as much focus as you can to each, and if necessary, prioritize so you’re most productive and effective.
Listen well to others, and be clear and precise in your own communication. Good communications creates good relationships.
THINK LIKE A MANAGER
Anticipate what your manager may expect, do or say. Reassure him/her that you can handle additional responsibility and eventually be counted on to make sound decisions.
BE HONEST AND HUMBLE
Don’t set expectations that are unrealistic. Be true to yourself and others about your capabilities without being overbearing and imperious.
And remember at the end of the day, always dedicate time to yourself, family and friends. Downtime is important to help you renew your spirit and achieve a work/life balance.
