There are millions of people who work 9-5 every single day, sitting in a cubicle thinking about the loads of work they need to finish before they could leave the office.
They try to give their 100% just to complete their work within the given time without thinking about anything else.
It's not because you need to brag about yourself, but to gain recognition inside your office.
You need to market yourself and let people know about your expert skills.
You need that recognition, where your manager would appreciate your work and back you up when you need any help.
But for that, you need to make him understand that you are a valuable asset to the company with your skill you make your company profitable.
So how can you show that?
By saying that you can work?
Here are some helpful tips which you can use in your work life to stand out from the crowd and show everyone what you can do.
1. Be On Time:
Let every day starts with a good impression when you decide to show up to the work on time for your work. Being punctual is the key for every success. Showing up in the office on time every single morning shows how serious and responsible person you are.
2. Bring Out That “I can DO” Attitude:
“Winning Starts From Your Mind”
If you can’t show anyone that you can get the job done, why will anyone look at you? For that, you need to think positive and focus on your work.
Invest some of your time in developing a positive attitude inside you and then see the results. You will achieve everything like a piece of cake.
3. Take Charge Of The Situation And Do The Job No One Else Dare To:
No matter if work is tough or easy, you have to do it.
I mean that’s why you get a paycheck every single month, RIGHT?
Seek out the toughest work and ask your manager to assign you for it. Ask him how can you assist to get that work done.
That is an opportunity for you to show your manager that you are willing to work on something that everyone hates to become a part of it.
This will show everyone that you have a leadership quality inside you and people can rely on you.
4. Speak Up Wisely:
How many meeting have you attended, where only your manager speaks about a situation and in return, all he gets is a pin drop silence?
I know, meetings can be boring, but for the company isn’t.
There are lots of things you have to discuss in the meeting to do your work go smoothly and efficiently.
Don’t be afraid to speak up in the meeting even though everyone else in the room is just sitting idle. Think about how to solve a problem, ask questions if you didn’t understand what your manager just said.
Remember, there is nothing called “STUPID QUESTIONS”.
But remember, don’t just talk because you have to say something, but talk something which will help in solving a problem.
5. Be Visible And Build Your Network:
It’s always helpful to build a strong network inside your office.
Involve yourself helping in planning an event or service for the company.
Try to build a reputation of being a reliable person and people can trust you.
Get to know people around you and start building your network. And don’t just push yourself building that connection in a single event, take your time and develop it over time.
6. Know When To Get Out:
Accept the fact that you won’t be getting credit for everything you do. That's OK.
Hoping for a reward or getting recognized by others every time you do something, will leave you disappointed.
That’s just the way it is.
So, don’t hope and try to focus on how you can finish your work faster with efficiency.
Manage your expectations.
You will get credit for your work eventually, but forcing people to give you credit won’t help in building your reputation.
And don’t try to do any of these things because it will boost up your reputation, but do it to help others and you will automatically get that reputation you deserve.
