Success in business is not so much about having the most brilliant answer. It is more about having a workable solution. And this requires developing an understanding of the unwritten rules of the Organization.
To become more persuasive and effective, figure out WHO and WHAT really matters. Ask successful people at your company what approaches and relationship helped them most.Be curious about the ways people get things done. And observe the inner working of the projects and initiatives you are not part of by building relationships with right and influential people.
Trust me, all of the information you gather can contribute to your own future success!!
You will agree with me that self-discipline is hard. However,where there is will,there is a way. I may suggest you to try these three tips to make your work more interesting and efficient every day:
- Get three thing done before noon: Statistics show that the team ahead at halftime is more likely to win the game.Enjoy your lunch knowing that you accomplished atleast three tasks in the morning.
- Sequence for speed: Break projects into parts. Take on the longer pieces at the beginning and make sure each subsequent part is shorter. If you leave the longest part for last, you are more likely to run out of steam before the end of the day.
- Tackle similar tasks at the same time: The mind thrives on repetition. You can build momentum by taking on similar projects at the same time.
Pl try these simple yet effective actions and i will be glad to have your feedback!
Do you believe in making decisions swiftly and decisively or with more caution and deliberation?
Whichever is the case, try these three tips to help you reach conclusions and avoid decisions trap:
- Get the right mind on the job: Decision making is the process of converting input into output. To make the best decisions, optimize your input by getting the opinions and insights of trusted people who know the arena best.
- Decide your decision making process: Bickering often happens during the decision making process. Be clear with yourself and others involved about the steps you will take to reach the decisions.
- Demand Diversity: To much agreement is dangerous; you need dissenting opinios too. Give a minority viewpoint a voice or appoint a devil’s advocate. Listening to the “other side” will give you a more appropriate,rational and robust answer.
Yes! We live in a demanding and distracting world. Being productive can sometimes be a real challenge and it may feel like an impossible feat.
I may suggest three ways to contain this challenge:
- Keep one to-do list: Include everything you want or need to do in one place Writing it down helps get it off your mind and leaves you free to focus on the urgent task at hand.
- Take up the most important thing first: Before you leave the work in the evening, decide what one thing you need to accomplish the next day. Do it first thing in the morning, when you are likely to have the most energy and fewest distraction.
- Decide time for non-urgent things: It is easy to get caught up in the pressing issues of the day. Block off time in your calender to do things that would otherwise get squeezed out, liking writing, thinking creatively, or building relationships.
I suggest you should always welcome constructive criticism. It is essential for creativity, innovation, and problem solving. Since leadership requires all three, leaders need to be sure not only that they are open to criticism, but that they actively seek it out.
You should not simply ask for general feedback but ask people-direct reports, peers, customers-to poke holes in your ideas and approaches.
It will help us to remember-critique can be useful approach to test idea and keep people and team accountable.
YES BY ALL MEANS!
If you have your sights set on the top job at your company, organizational barriers are likely standing in your way. This may be especially true if you are a woman. Yes,i have seen this. However, the mental barriers holding you back may be just as strong, if not stronger.
To get what you want, you need to ask for it and, in some cases, push for it. Never assume that you are going to be treated fairly or just rewarded. You must define what you want and present the case for why the company should give it to you.
Organizational bias is REAL, but don’t let your own timidity or fear of self promotion make you lose out on what you truly deserve!
Best of Luck!!
Don’t let your ego get in the way of your desire to learn new skills. Successful people keep their mind open to new things because they know that no matter how high their level of mastery, there is always more to discover. If you have become expert in one field, seek out other fields where you can transfer and apply your expertise.
When facing challenges, even ones you have faced many times before, adopt a learner’s approach-ask questions or find new ways to solve the problem.
Please try this and see for yourself!!
