Life is easier, better, and more enjoyable when you can adapt faster… That is a fact! Change will hit every aspect of your life and force you to adjust accordingly. Since socializing goes under the category of change, then you will feel the need to bend and stretch. For instance, meeting new people! Meeting up with a new group of people is something and being tied to their existence in your orbit is a WHOLE DIFFERENT thing. Exposing yourself to a new mass of people may not be something you, voluntarily, chose… it could be “a new- job sort of exposure”. So, how well will you do?
Working at a new place holds so many perks, indeed. But, that is only one side of the story. Getting to know everyone you will cooperate with requires that you sound and behave in a certain way, if you are interested in building a positive environment. Otherwise, you will add insult to injury. After a decent amount of time, people will categorize you in a certain way depending on the things they saw and heard from you or about you. But, how do I become the main character? How do I dazzle them in the personal and professional ways?
Being at the top of the career’s mountain is not as hard as it seems. The company type you work for plays a role in defining the point from which the competition begins. But, generally speaking, people believe that becoming the main character, the ideal employee, and the role model of the company takes so much work and time. And that is the reason most of them quit trying or do not even try at all. This is where you sweep in by doing what they did not do and charm them with your ethics and professionalism. Focus on getting the job done, having a sharp eye, speaking out loud when everyone settles. It is also important that you volunteer, help those who need a hand, ask for help or clarification.
Sitting behind the desk and shutting the whole world out is not the smartest thing to do if you want to move up and score successes. Know how to show up with confidence even if it is fake and learn how to speak and have your own opinion. Work on your skills! Getting the position is not the last destination, keep it going. Lastly, it is vital to know the difference between trying to get the best out of yourself and presenting the best to people… And trying to be someone you are not, letting go of your identity, and allowing people to cross the lines for the sake of becoming recognizable. That is why you should know your rights as you offer your duties.
