Seven Ways to Stand Out At Work

14 01 2011

1. Control your image. This not only includes your clothing style but your self image as well. You should always dress appropriately for your job. You should have self confidence in the work you are doing and believe that you can accomplish the job at hand.

2. Communicate Effectively. Listen actively to understand what you are being told. When you are speaking, speak clearly. Avoid negativity and pay attention to yours and others body language. Be sure to show interest.

3. Improve your leadership skills. Motivate others by giving reinforcement, teach others, give enthusiasm, and pass up leadership in areas where someone else is better suited than you.

4. Maintain Integrity and Digression. Practice ethical behavior and use your common sense. Do not take credit for others work or pretend to know something when you don’t. Do not lie you want to be trustworthy. Be discreet about what you say and who you say it to.

5. Learn From Mistakes. It is okay to admit your faults and let it go. Do not blame others. Be rational and do not make false assumptions. If you do not know something it is okay.

6. Adjust to Change. Technology and organizational functions are constantly changing. Be flexible and accepting of change.

7. Manage your Time. Planning, prioritizing, and getting organized is a good tool to stay on track and to avoid wasting time. Do not take too long to take advantage of a good opportunity.
