6 components of a successful career
"This is a promising task, I will take care of it right now." If the boss gives you an assignment, do not agree with just a nod and a laconic "yep." Show to the task a lively interest, show your superiors that you are very interested in the execution or decision of this order. Show the boss that the work in which you are engaged is really interesting to you, and he will note about himself your business attitude and speed of action.
“Let's discuss the pros and cons. In the process of discussing the creation of a project or its changes, do not rush to tell colleagues and superiors that their ideas are worthless. Where better to invite them to the discussion and discuss all controversial points. Discussing the problem, do not criticize colleagues at work, offer your idea for consideration. Let you mind flexibility, diplomacy in disputes, foresight and broad outlook. These qualities are sure to help you move up the career ladder.
"We have achieved more than planned." When the project is completed, it is necessary to report to the authorities. You should always remember that a lively story about creating a project makes a bigger impression than statistics, charts and dry figures. Emphasize in your story with the word “we” the achievements of the entire organization, that you worked for the common good and in the interests of the company. Your story should be more than reliable, do not embellish the situation, the authorities do not like being deceived.
"I will do everything I can." In the process, no one is immune from force majeure and unforeseen situations. For example, breaking a relationship with a large customer, failure of suppliers to fulfill their obligations under the contract, etc. Tell the management that you are doing everything possible to eliminate the problem, that you are doing your best and you are not indifferent to the outcome of the case for the company. Let the chef appreciate your efforts.
"I am ready to take responsibility for myself." To hear from subordinates such a phrase is pleasant to any boss. Perhaps you are ready to lead (project, department, etc.), but for now you are not given responsible instructions. Do not hesitate to take the initiative and commit yourself to the execution of tasks. It is much better to show the authorities that you can do more than a multi-year execution of the same assignment.
“We are a team!” If your colleagues are professionals, then surely you are proud to work with them and do a common job. Do not hide your feelings. We always need a positive assessment, even if we don’t say it out loud and don’t show it in any way - this is not accepted in our society. If you are embarrassed or you lack the strength of spirit to say something like: “It gives me great pleasure to work with you,” then simply say: “I am proud of you!”
