Managers appreciate employees with a great smile and a great attitude. They value associates who walk in the front door with a cheerful outlook and stay upbeat no matter what challenges come throughout the day.
If you can be remembered for anything in your professional life, why not be remembered for your optimism?
2. Excel with excitement
In some jobs, it’s okay to do the bare minimum.
But why be okay when you can be great?
A boss’s favorite employee is usually one who goes above and beyond. Who does more than what is asked. Who exceeds expectations.
Staff who take the initiative become invaluable in the workplace. Plain and simple.
Have a peer with an overflowing workload? Jump in and even stay late to assist.
Notice a new colleague in the office? Have compassion and set up a powwow to offer helpful advice.
Giving a presentation to the directors? Give credit to your peers who helped you put it all together.
Your boss will laud you, and your coworkers will love you for it.
5. Communicate with confidence
All of the best inventions began with an idea. That is, an idea that was shared.
Has this ever happened to you?
You’re sitting at your desk and think,“There’s gotta be a more efficient way to run this report.”You’re sitting in a meeting and think, “There’s gotta be a more creative way to show our customers appreciation.”
Don’t be afraid to share your ideas. Be bold and tell the world (or at least your organization) what is possible.
Even the smallest notions can make a big, impactful difference in your work environment.
