During times of change in the office, it can be hard to keep your eye on the prize. Remember, change is often necessary for progress.
In fact, a stagnant workflow can lead to decline in creativity, production and innovation.
Improve your satisfaction and productivity, while improving the company's direction, by embracing change, challenging yourself and finding focus.
During times of change, shifting your mindset to one of embracing rather than avoiding, can really help with productivity. Focus on the positive and remember the results can benefit you personally or professionally in the long run.
If you're losing ambition, challenge yourself. Request employee development training or pursue higher learning for yourself. Learning new skills and demonstrating them to your manager makes you look invested in the company.
What inspires you every day? Differentiate between the motivators that bring temporary bursts of determination and those that will truly deliver long-term success. Then, find the resources you need to reach your full potential.
REMAINING ENGAGED AT WORK CAN HELP POSITION YOU FOR UPWARD MOBILITY AND CAREER ADVANCEMENT
Not every day at work is going to be life changing, but these three steps can help you stay happy and motivated.
ONE: FIND A MENTOR
Leaders create leaders. Industry gurus serve as catalysts for helping high performing employees to reach their full potential. As a mentee you will recognise talents and attributes that otherwise go unnoticed.
TWO: SET GOALS
Career goals start with small milestones. With your manager, set timely and attainable goals that will keep you engaged. Goal setting has been proven to increase employee engagement by 3.6 times more!
THREE: LET HR HELP YOU
After all, it's your career at stake. Whether it's a training, course reimbursement, or an industry conference that piques your interest, don't be afraid to speak up and ask for what you want.
