The responsibility that befalls someone having decided to become a member of some organization or a corporate is a substitute to that has he had the chance to run his own business with some differences all related to revenues and the like. In other words what one may aspire to fulfill through his own business -that in terms of success and input- can be reflected in the job he’s assigned for as a member of somebody else’s firm.
This comes after choosing the right entity where you find yourself fitting well, within its values, business, mindset, and above all being in a position you truly believe to can add to.
A confident employee is never shy to ask, even if he happens to hold a senior position. Asking saves the pain of committing mistakes and wasting time, and getting the job done fast and efficiently.
Also a good employee benefits from criticism, of course when it comes from the right channel. He actually acts upon what may be his mistakes or drawbacks and rise stronger.
Also each employee speaks his own mind and reflects his integrity through his work, so the quality he delivers and how he handles the tasks assigned to him tells a lot about him, making his job a mirror reflecting his own persona, and this tells a lot about how delivery quality work is crucial to each employee.
Then comes communication and being an impacting team member, regardless of what position you may uphold.
To become a successful employee, one may need to develop unique communication skills to deal with all organization members of all levels.
Having been in the position of being published and communicating with various types of readers of a variety of cultures, I came to value the power of communication and connecting to people’s minds to get them engaged or impact them in one way or another, whether getting them believe in what you’re trying to sell through your words, or clearing up what may be boggling them.
Impacting minds and having a positive presence had always a pragmatic privilege to, not just corporations and institutions, but also governments, volunteer work, and all sorts of organizations with their all time varying scopes, visions and objectives.
A close knit of satisfied and synergetic team with transparency, trust and cooperation displayed as it should is what makes or brakes an organization- and this is a responsibility shared among all organization members of all levels, junior and senior alike. Embracing such spirit and developing by all employees tends to establish a two-way commitment, benefiting the organization and the employees alike, while asserting a respect-based employer- employee, something aspired by all institutions and individuals.
Likewise, enacting a pleasant and warm atmosphere of pro-activeness had never been the work of just one employee but initiated and developed by each and every employee, with varying input. That’s why being engaged with peers, subordinates as well as supervisors is what makes an employee stand out as someone of key role and active presence that would benefit all…
Knowing that passion is infectious, and having practiced how it gets transmitted by communicating on a genuine level with people, I have found that connecting to people, particularly at work, brings myriads of benefits that had always returned to me 10 folds. It’s all about sharing.
Also caring for peers establishes an atmosphere f compassion and considerate attitude shared by all members which is usually translated into honest commitment to the organization, let alone dedication and strict attention to the quality of work delivered.
Inspiring people on the professional and the personal level had always been the magic band that equally helped me and those I worked with, making whichever challenges an organization may go through as enjoyable beyond expectation, notwithstanding the obstacles one may face.
Transparency remains no 1 on the list of advices of how to become a successful employee, or an employer actually.
A good employee never worries about sharing knowledge, lest it put his/her position in jeopardy. In fact social media has proved that sharing the most intricate knowledge with others through whichever web tools, blogs, forums or web communities, doubles people’ benefit, advancing their knowledge and perception by exposing them to more than they may have read or came to learn.
Technically, reaching out to people through benefitting them gets them listen to you and this is when you can impact them and win their Trust- a keyword to business entities’ success.
Then comes competence. Surviving through bad times and obstacles makes one grow stronger and develop advanced skills.
Also following up on one’s own field of specialty is what makes him/her a good caliber, benefitting his/her career and the organization one may represent.
There would be times, when an individual would reconsider his presence in the organization he serves, but revisiting his decision is better done by evaluating the situation in light of what’s discussed above.
Developing comfort where one works, using all factors described and many more, is what sustains and develops an employee-employer relationship, in a way that benefits both parties.
