6 components of a successful career
"This is a promising job, I'll do it right now." If the boss gives you an order, do not just agree with a nod of your head and say "uh-huh." Show a lively interest in the task, show the authorities that you are very interested in the execution or resolution of this commission. Show the boss that the work you are doing is really interesting to you, and he will note your business mood and speed of action.
"Let's discuss all the pros and cons. In the process of discussing the creation of a project or its change, do not rush to tell colleagues and superiors that their ideas are worthless. It is much better to invite them to a discussion and discuss all the disputable issues. When discussing the problem, do not criticize your colleagues, suggest your idea for consideration. Let you be distinguished by the flexibility of the mind, diplomacy in disputes, forethought and a wide range of interests. These qualities will certainly help you to move higher up the career ladder.
"We have achieved more than planned." When the project is completed, it is necessary to report to the authorities. One should always remember that a living story about the creation of a project makes a greater impression than statistics, diagrams and dry figures. Underline in your story the word "we" of the organization's achievements that you worked for the common good and in the company's interests. Your story should be more than credible, do not embellish the situation, bosses do not like being deceived.
"I will do everything I can." In the process of work, no one is immune from force majeure and unforeseen situations. For example, the breakdown of relations with a large client, the supplier's failure to fulfill its obligations under the contract, etc. Inform the management that you are doing everything possible to solve the problem, that you are making maximum efforts and you are not indifferent to the outcome of the matter for the firm. Let the boss appreciate your efforts.
"I'm ready to take responsibility for myself." To hear from subordinates such a phrase is pleasant to any boss. Perhaps you are already ready to lead (project, department, etc.), but so far you have not been given responsible assignments. Do not hesitate to take the initiative and commit yourself to fulfilling the tasks. It is much better to show superiors that you can do more than the long-term fulfillment of the same commission.
"We are a team!" If your colleagues are professionals in their field, then for sure you are proud to work with them and do a common cause. Do not hide your feelings. We always need a positive evaluation, even if we do not talk about it out loud and we do not demonstrate it at all - in our society this is not accepted. If you are shy or you lack the strength of the spirit to say something like: "working with you gives me tremendous pleasure," then for starters simply say: "I'm proud of you!"
