The world's growing ever more competitive. Even if you already have a job, making sure you have access to the best opportunities means going beyond the usual. It's not enough to stay on top of your to-do list or meet the expectations of your job description. If you want to make an impression, you have to differentiate yourself from others.. The majority of workers are those who may feel they are struggling in the race of getting noticed by their managers.
Few ways to make a successful impression in the workplace
Being a team man:
To achieve success in any sort of businesses, a strong team is crucial. A key difference between a jubilant achiever and a regular toiler is the former’s quality of building effective working links with colleagues as an additional step, up the decisive ladder of acclaim.
Keep people informed.
No one likes chasing people or information. Do everyone a favor and update them often. People often think they should wait to communicate when a task is finished or they have specific information. When you let people know what's happening--even if it means saying you don't know--you're saving them from speculation, distraction, and rumors. A simple status update can buy a lot of peace of mind.
Do things without being asked.
Never ask, "Is there anything I can do?" Just look around and find something useful to do. Making an impact means seeing what needs to get done and taking the initiative to make sure it happens.
Be a great listener.
Most people think that making an impact is all about what you say and do. Often overlooked is another important way you can leave your mark--by becoming a great listener. Pay attention to what people say.
Take the lead.
Everyone has the choice to be a leader, to make an impact and leave their mark. Too many people back off from taking the lead in the mistaken belief that leadership and greatness are reserved for a select few.
Set Goals to Achieve:
Setting oneself certain goals to work towards could do a world of good for a trailing worker. This would let the person evidence the results achieved by him through his hard work.
