Getting Noticed in the Workplace: Ask Noah
Secondly, pick a specific upcoming office project or problem. Take time formulating an opinion or action plan regarding said project and then formulate a concise statement you would make in the meeting. Make this statement bold and unwavering.
This is your second announcement: A leader's voice has arrived at the workplace!
2. Acknowledge Others!
Publicly acknowledge your co-workers accomplishments. Who doesn't love being told they did a great job?
Your co-workers will be shocked, awed and appreciative.
More importantly, they will now see you as a supportive teammate rather then a productive lone wolf.
3. Be a Team Player!
Find a way to work collaboratively with a fellow employee on a project. Let the office know that you are a member of this team.
A person with strong teamwork capabilities, social awareness skills and relationship management tools will go far.
Your bosses want to see this.
4. Socialize With Associates!
I am sure your colleagues socialize with one another after work. You should make every effort to join in their fun downtime. Remember people reward people they like and appreciate socially.
Go out, have a drink, get chicken wings, share an artichoke dip fondue, relax and unwind with your people.
I promise it won't kill you. Everyone will realize that you know how to have to fun and enjoy their company. Plus, some of the most important and genuine business rehashing comes with a relaxed drink, and a smile.
This will have immediate results! You will become more aware of office politics, understand individuals personalities and cultivate the types of work relationships which will become the heart of your professional successes.
5. Action Steps!
A leadership position opens up. Create the buzz; you want this, you're right for this! Your work persona has now been altered, and it is yours for the taking.
Here is where you switch.
Remind your bosses of that hard working man who produced results year in and year out. They respect that. They will now think about the last several months and recognize your growth as a leader, collaborator, and team player.
This is a systematic approach. You are learning to navigate your work environment to get what you want and deserve.
Do not be afraid to leave the comfort zone. Professional successes will follow.
