How to Get Ahead in the Workplace - Part II

Getting ahead takes work. Part I of this newsletter covered our internal salesman (including showmanship), our contributions, and how we communicate in the workplace.

Part II focuses on the importance of knowing thyself - acknowledging your accomplishments, recognizing what is important to you, and doing what it takes to set you up to succeed.

Know Yourself

Oftentimes people set unattainable goals at work and it is important to understand and acknowledge your limitations.

With additional training, you can learn new skills to achieve goals in the future that may be unobtainable today. If that is just not feasible at this time, take stock of your strengths and exploit them to the fullest and don’t concentrate on your shortcomings.
