From rags to riches: Running up the career ladder - April 19, 2010

April 19 2010

You year after year, sitting at his workplace, carefully carrying out their professional duties. And on the horizon loomed the long-awaited increase - your boss is gone, there is no doubt that his place will designate it for you. Who else? You know all the details of the work, diligent and faithful. But in this place for some reason they took a man with "street" or worse yet, a recent newcomer. Why?

Bulgakov's "nothing ever ask for, they will come, all will give themselves" ("The Master and Margarita") in a career is not permissible. The fact that you never have approached the issue of raising to the head. Boss is in full confidence that it takes your place, you are quite satisfied. Time talking about another impending increase, you would have solved this issue once and for all.

Therefore, clearly define its requirements, and told them to management.

Abnormal speech and gestures

Your manner of communication, voice, gestures, talk about you a lot more than words. Nonverbal communication is even more important than the words you speak.

Your passivity and embarrassment caused only a general suspicion and pity. Are such feelings should call a man claiming to be something? Uncertain rights issue trembling voice, lowered shoulders, poor posture, a guilty smile, plenty of excuses, opening words and introductions.

Decline in communication from the "careful" speech constructions "I try to do it", "could you ...»," I thought, "I do not quite understand," "may," and "like."

Try a "strong" about it. For example, instead of "I did not get the job, better to say -" I need to clarify some points. " Of these "little things" and create your professional image.

Before talking with the chief determinant of the main idea. If the authorities will need details, you will be asked about them. During the call, continue to put pressure on non-verbal communication - posture is the most open, look straight, unambiguous and concise statements.

Demonstration of emotions

You are emotional and it's not bad at communicating, but is unlikely to benefit career. Your restraint and objectivity of the show that you make informed logical decisions to anyone, even a critical situation.

The best way to hide their emotional vulnerability - is to minimize the personal conversations. Do not take criticism and comments of superiors and colleagues as an insult, we all have problems, PMS, bad mood.

Not every work is going in your favor

Unskilled labor consuming your "golden" time.Always hold it only for the work, which enhances your skills and add points you in the face of the authorities. Do not let colleagues sit on your neck. Copy documents for hours or be "gofer," not worthy of a man with higher education.

Or may not be

We are all different, with different ideas about success. Choosing a career path, please note: you can not please everybody, even the remaining years in one post. You are not "gold coin to please everyone." Will always be people who you are unpalatable. During the construction of a career, you will always be for someone to "weasel", "bitch," "clever," "suck," "rascal". But not for everyone!
