Job Success through Business Etiquette

A major problem for many people in a career is finding success. However, you can always have a successful job if you simply change the way you think about work. If you hate your job or cannot stand your boss you will never find work a pleasure. What a terrible affirmation that is!! It will not be possible for you to ever attract a great job with that belief system. Affirm that your current job is merely a stepping stone to greater positions.

Once you have found a job, you will want to do everything possible to be successful at it. To ensure you are doing your job, make sure you fully understand all the duties assigned to you. Ask your employer to provide you with a list of job duties. Ask questions and find the most efficient ways to perform your job. When you make a mistake, learn from it, rather than repeat it. Stay focused by referring to your list of duties from time to time. If you take pride in what you do, you will make yourself and your employer happy. Do not make careless mistakes and follow your employer’s rules and regulations. Take time to read and understand his policies and procedure manual. If you cannot find answers, ask your supervisor.

Always maintain a professional attitude at work. A smile, self confident attitude and friendly words go a long way towards establishing strong working relationships with your superior, co-workers and customers. In a team atmosphere, be an active listener. Your supervisor and co-workers value their opinion. However, do not be afraid to share your knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm. Employers want employees who take initiative, follow instructions, respond well to constructive criticism and co-operate. Make it a point to attend meetings and company sponsored social events.

Before you can fit in with the culture of an organization, you must define it. To do so, watch and listen to those around you. You will get a sense of the company’s expectations, for workplace tidiness, work expectations, socializing, dressing and much more as mentioned in the employee manual. Besides this, find ways to take additional responsibilities. Like working late when necessary, mastering new technology, taking additional training, volunteering to become a committee leader and developing a reputation for excellent customer service. Try to conquer negativity towards your job as it can sabotage your chances of work success. Instead focus on what you enjoy about your job. Avoid gossip and politics in the office. If you are unhappy about your job, make a list of the jobs pros and cons. Then seek ways to make improvement. Attentive listening is a critical skill in succeeding in your job. Listen attentively. Ask for clarification. Engage in conversations, repeat back in your own words and ask open minded questions. Establish a reputation as a go-to person who perseveres and solves problems. Learn the art of making your voice heard and be comfortable with tactfully speaking up and asking respectful questions. Be confident enough to share your ideas with your team. Change is constant in organizations. So learn to analyze why they have been done and what new benefits they offer. Become an early adopter who will in turn guide and train others in embracing the change. For continuous growth and improvement practice the habit of seeking feedback. Be flexible to meet tight deadlines. Seek ways to expand your current role. Identify new tasks that need to be done. Adopt a laser focused commitment in everything you do – big or small. The trademark of an entrepreneur is their ability to take a risk on turning a passionate vision into a reality.

To be successful at your job, business etiquettes are also very important. Business Etiquette is a set of manners that is accepted or required in a profession. When it comes to business etiquettes there are rules that are not meant to be broken. Some may seem like common sense, but you would be surprised by how many times you may have made a mistake without even noticing it. Unspoken and implicit business etiquette exists in even the more laid back company cultures. Following rules can prevent you from making an embarrassing mistake.

Business etiquette makes your work easier and more pleasant for your fellow colleagues. Basically, it is about how you conduct yourself around co-workers, potential business partners and customers. It boils down to treating others with respect, to be aware of everyone present and to be polite overall. Specific proper workplace etiquette rules apply to almost every business.

Business etiquette is important because it creates a professional, mutually respectful atmosphere and improves communication which helps an office serve as a productive place. People feel better about their jobs when they feel respected and that translates into better customer relationships as well. Improving your business etiquettes can have a positive impact on your career. ‘Use common courtesy’ Adopt the you attitude’ – first consider others needs and feelings. This behavior leads to good manners and common courtesy thereby improving your business etiquettes.

Employers want to work with people who are skilled, highly motivated and able to adapt to the work environment, able to work with different types of people, enthusiastic, friendly, honest, bright, alert and active. Your job is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And to do great work is to love what you do. Remember, it is not what you overcome. That is what defines your career.
