We’re at the last leg of this three part series on fifteen addictive character traits that you must have to create an inspiring and success-driven work atmosphere. Listing down the previous ten: communication, honesty, charisma, confidence, enthusiasm, ambitious, cooperative, meticulous, punctual and resourceful; each comes with their own merit and importance.
Now we take a look at the last five that rounds up our list. Can you take a closer look and see which ones do you need to improve on most?
The buzzword of this new millennium is multitasking. HR managers are looking for that diamond in the rough who can boldly say “I can juggle multiple tasks.”
But keep in mind, it’s not about the number of tasks that you can handle at once; it’s your ability to work smart and finish off each one as efficient as possible. That’s where cleverness comes in.
Working on several menial tasks can prove to be more “practical”, but you should be clever enough to focus on a task that is both urgent and important. Otherwise, you’re just wasting precious time and resources.
Efficiency is often measured by the quickness by which one properly finishes an assigned task. There are certain industries such as manufacturing and those involving labor that vie for a quick turnover time. So working efficiently is a strength that breeds success.
But then again, even in conceptual businesses, efficiency can still be measured by the quality of output that can be produced given a short amount of time.
Easily one of the hardest traits to enhance and improve. As a culture, we are so distracted by the most trivial of things. To find a goal-oriented person who could really focus on a particular goal at a time is so precious these days.
Many focusing tips and techniques are available to teach you how to increase your productivity. It’s really a mindset thing. Setting your mind on something allows you to focus on it. After the mind comes the body. So focusing all your energy and effort on that one thing will produce a successful outcome.
How can you say that you are intuitive? It’s when you can sense when there is a problem. It’s about being sensitive and observant enough to feel that something’s just not right.
Intuitive leaders go a long way in life. It’s the X-factor that others don’t have but only you can instinctively feel.
Sometimes it’s inherent. But most of the time, intuitiveness can be harnessed. A person can train himself to be more intuitive. And if that intuitiveness is translated to action, you’re all set for success.
Okay, if you don’t know how to use the internet, open an email, or to use a search engine, then you’ve been living under a rock. Or if you don’t know what any of these terms mean – B2B, AI, HubSpot, MailChimp or Google – then, ironically, you have to learn to google them.
You have to be technologically and industrially savvy to survive in today’s world. Your reluctance to embrace technology and advancement will be the death of you.
Don’t disappear into oblivion just because you’re too stubborn or lazy to learn new things, even at your own pace. It’s never too late to learn and you’re never too old to study.
With these remaining character traits, combined with the first ten qualities, you’ll be every manager, supervisor and co-worker’s dream. You’ll be creating a positive work atmosphere, and success will constantly be hovering towards you like a bee to a pollen.
