Who does not want an outstanding career growth? Who does not want to be at the zenith of success? But the ladder to success is not that easy; there are others in queue dreaming the same job prospects like you. There is tough competition and you need to be extraordinary to gain success. Let us checkout some ways to prove yourself discreetly at workplace.
1. Respect Privacy
Do you have any clue about the secret conversation going on in the next cubicle? And a solution to the problem as well? It is never advisable to interfere into a private discussion and present your solution. This can never impress your seniors but annoy them.
2. Stop Copying
If you think by imitating your boss you can impress him/her, well you are wrong again. Restrain yourself from buying the same clothes, watches and bags like your boss; using the same perfume can even be a blunder. Yes, you can have the same dress code to fit into the team, but picking up the exact clothes and accessories is a big no.
3. Do not Exaggerate Your Knowledge
It is good to know things but bragging is never taken positively. If you have a say in any matter raise your hand and wait for your turn. Learn to say as much as required instead of fabricating your stories. Once or twice people might believe you, but gradually people will start ignoring your opinions.
4. Do not De-mean Your Present Designation
When you get a promotion do not say anything which proves that your current role is useless. Speaking excessively about what you are going to do the soon you get promotion, may actually highlight your negativity. Keep your plans to yourself until and unless you actually get the new role.
5. Be Punctual
Some feel if they reach the meeting room/ office dinner too early, it may mean they are too eager to please the seniors. However, showing up late may not either prove that you are too busy a person to keep others waiting. Plan your work and respect others’ time. Showing up on time is a great way of creating the right impression at work.
6. Be Professional
Last but not the least; be professional at work. It is good to relax after completing one task but that does not mean you have the right to disturb others busy in their job. Do not laugh or crack jokes loudly to get annoying look from others. Again whispering with your colleagues is not a good idea too. This may appear like gossiping which is never expected from a professional.
