Unlocking an employees potential requires them to develop insight and skill build in 5 key areas. Building these 5 areas not only facilitates high performance, it initiates a pathway into future leadership roles.
Speak up: Asserting yourself, having challenging conversations, and sharing your opinions are key to building relationships, demonstrating your value and building your brand. However, a lack of communication will mean others questioning your value.
Get it done: To have impact and immediately showcase your value, you must deliver. Knowing how to manage your time, prioritise effectively, problem solve and make good decisions.
As a team: Organisations can no longer survive with siloed workers, collaboration is key. Learning how to collaborate effectively using emotional intelligence and understanding the personality styles of others sets the foundation.
Good attitude: Success correlates with attitude, not personality or skill set. Attitudes can be learnt and an Exemplary Employee will spend considerable time nurturing this. A good attitude will assist team members in being resilient, innovative, collaborative and accountable.
Bold brand: To build and expand your reputation in an organisation, you must create a brand that is effective and visible. Understanding our brand further facilitates our ability to influence and persuade others, moving from an individual contributor to a business partner.
