The secret to staying happy and engaged at work #ThursdayTips

09/08/2018


As you’ve settled into your new role, let’s talk what you can do to make the most of this opportunity.

  1. Embrace feedback. Encourage both your manager and your direct reports to give you feedback. Share your thoughts on their projects as well. Remember - feedback doesn’t mean constructive criticism only! It can be a regular praise, emphasising all the good ideas, complimenting on good solutions. Check this video for more
  2. Set goals. Not only the ones that are a part of your formal development plan in the company, think of some personal ones as well. Keep them on your desktop so it’s easier to stay on track.
  3. Keep a record of your achievements. Not only can it come in handy in your appraisal, it will also be useful if you start considering changing your job again. Set an hour aside every quarter for some self-reflection and progress evaluation.

And, most importantly, adopt a beginner’s mindset

As we grow our expertise, it’s common to get comfortable and have fixed, proven ways of doing things. The beginner’s mindset allows you to look at everything from the fresh perspective. This way, you will stay engaged, your work more creative and your company more competitive.
