Stick to your Plan and Commitment to Numbers
Usually young executives ignore the significance of targets and commitments assigned to them. This is a serious issue, as one need to be responsible and achieve whatever target is there. When a company hires executives they set a target for the entire fiscal year, and it is fair practice that executives need to realize and perform well. Always achieve whatever you have committed in your target, it might happen that you get less than that, but setting a low target it certainly not a good thing. You need to dedicate a lot in terms of hard work and proper estimation with a fool proof plan, to get better results for the company. There are various uncertain factors that crop up to ruin your efforts, but the bottom line is, being prepared to work against the odds. Remember ‘not failure but low aim is a crime’
Playing it Safe is Not Safe
It is natural that people tend to save their jobs at any cost. As a result, sometimes they tend to play safe with a mediocre job role and never strive enough to meet the challenges. Today’s competitive world demands a smart and active player, so it is crucial to get out of your comfort zone, take risks to achieve your professional goals, meet the challenges and bring something wonderful to add to the company’s profile. If you miss to take chances and be courageous, then your counterparts will grab it nonetheless.
Guard your Personal Integrity
Personal integrity is your most valuable asset; in fact it’s your identity. In an organization not everyone is made of the same character, some people use wrong means to rise high in their career. As a professional it is essential for you to stay clear of any such temptations that promise quick success at the cost of your integrity. When you have high personal integrity, you are morally sound, honest, responsible, and trustworthy. The reward for such uncompromising integrity is the confidence of your associates, sub-ordinates and customers, apart from your employer. It pays you in the long run and might as well land you with a significant position in the organization at the right time.
Learn to play as a ‘team’
In a game of soccer, an individual can never be a winner. Just like that in the work place, when there are large projects that comprises multiple people, your performance is not the only thing to achieve the goal. You need to work like a team of soccer, co-coordinating, understanding, and moving together in the right direction. Being a team player is the best thing in an organization, where you learn to value others’ opinions and their limitations as well.
Learn to respect ‘diversity’
In an organization people come from different ethnic, social and educational background. Being intellectually superior or having a better lifestyle doesn’t give you the liberty to humiliate other fellow executives. It’s a sign of a good human to value the diversity and have genuine respect. To have a proper working relationship, you need to mutually respect each other.
These points would certainly add value to your professional life. Practice them and shine like a true star at work!
