Want to boost your career? I’ve got the top workplace tips that lead to success:
#1: Support other people’s ideas. Business expert Jeff Hayden says that a lot of us mistakenly believe that coming up with our own good ideas is the key to a promotion. But the truth is: The people who make it to the top are usually those who go out of their way to consider everybody’s ideas and who actively work to help the company reach its goals.
The next way to get promoted: Speak up. Glen Llopis is a leadership consultant to Fortune 500 companies. And he says that people who consistently offer well-thought-out advice and opinions are incredibly rare in today’s workplace. So, when they speak up, their words instantly earn the respect and attention of their coworkers and their superiors.
Also: Be a good teacher. Scott Berkun wrote Making Things Happen: Mastering Project Management. And he says that sharing your skills and knowledge with your coworkers is one of the best ways to advance your career. Because it shows your boss that you’re a team player. And it also improves your reputation with your peers, which means, they’ll be more willing to follow your lead when you’re in charge.
And the last trait of successful workers is also the most important: Integrity, which means, you’re always honest and can’t be corrupted. Billionaire investor Warren Buffett says – and this is a quote - “In looking for people to hire, look for 3 qualities: Integrity, intelligence, and energy.”
