Lighting The Way At Your Workplace

by Feb 18, 2020

Welcome back! We hope you had a wonderful long weekend. We’re re-charged and ready to provide you with our latest round of tips and tricks for personal and professional success. In honor of Presidents’ Day (as well as the spring that is quickly approaching!), today we’re discussing ways to serve as a guiding light in your workplace.

 

Jo Miller at The Muse offers up this handy suggestion: “Deliver Superior Performance. Don’t just meet expectations; exceed them. Every time. Being recognized as someone who possesses high potential starts with superior performance.” Be the one to set the bar high–to set the gold standard for you and all of your co-workers! Delivering your best efforts is a surefire method to inspire those around you while also signalling to your bosses that you’re ready to take on even more responsibilities and challenges. So aim high and shine bright!

 

Yun Siang Long and Kelly Kuehn at Work It Daily also support such an approach. One of their top workplace leadership tips is “Take On More Responsibility At Work. You want to be a leader at work, learn to take responsibility for anything that you’re interested in, and own it. That also means that as long as you participate in that project, you influence whether it fails or succeeds. Learn to take responsibility for not just the good things, but also the bad things. Take ownership of your mistakes, and know it’s okay to be wrong. You cannot learn if you haven’t made any mistakes.” As we’ve said before, you’re only human and humans make mistakes. The way you bounce back from any missteps is what makes the difference. Investing yourself in your projects is a great way to connect with your co-workers; demonstrating your ability to bounce back from any missteps amidst the process is a great way to serve as an inspiration in your professional environment.

 

Finally, we’ll conclude with some advice you’ve very likely already heard many times in your life: Norman Vincent Peale, author of The Power of Positive Thinking, says “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” Both the moon and the stars offer up guiding light amidst the darkest nights. While we may be in the midst of a grey and dreary February, each day the light lasts a little longer. Let that light recharge you, channeling it into your own work, and let your vibrance inspire others.
