Ever wonder how some of the men in your company all seem to be moving ahead faster than anyone else including you?
We’ve discovered these four tips that seem universal.
1. Come Prepared
This means not only coming to work prepared but staying on top of your work throughout the day. Be prepared for every meeting or project. And make sure that you have all of your prep work done. That way, you can discover and understand what extra information or resources you might need.
2. Have an Informed Opinion
Know the condition of your division as well as the state of the marketplace you’re in. Then, develop an opinion on how to improve. Real, not fanciful ways you and your team could give something new a shot.
Your opinion needs to be an informed one because everyone has opinion about everything in business. Be the one who knows what they’re talking about.
Now that you’ve taken the time to develop a viewpoint, make sure you pick a time to share it.
During a one on one meeting is great because you can tell the boss you disagree without drawing a crowd. Then, sincerely and politely present your case. Your boss may overrule you, but the important thing is that he/she will know that you’re not a blind, automatic yes. So those times you do agree, that yes will carry more weight.
3. Take the Initiative
Struggling for new challenges and recognition? Then make sure that when you see something that needs to be done, do it. Someone said a new project is on the boards? Go for it. If you want to go higher in the company, you need to take risks. If you’re on top of all of your current work and things are going well, overstep your boundaries just a bit in a way that’s valuable to the company. Keep the boss informed as to what you’re working on. True, it may get taken away from you, but he/she isn’t going to forget your vision.
4. Stay Healthy
Nothing is going to trip you up more in your business life if you’re continually getting sick, hurt or distracted. Losing focus, concentration, and not being able to remember things is a sure road to failure.
Get more exercise, learn better eating habits, and even consider brain supplements and nootropics like Noopept Capsules. All of these will help you sharpen focus, increase concentration and enhance your memory.
The good news is that women can take advantage of these practices just as easily as men.
So there you are, four simple tricks that the guys use. And we can too.
