Succeed in the workplace

Succeed in the workplace


Although workplaces require different skills and personality traits to fit into the role and culture of the business, there are some universal attributes that can help you succeed in the workplace.

Consider the following:

Effective communication skills
Having effective communication skills is critical as it determines how well you get along with colleagues, management and other stakeholders in the business. Verbal and nonverbal communication skills are key, i.e., active listening, maintaining eye contact, articulate speech, excellent writing skills and good phone manner.

Planning and organisation
Setting SMART goals in the workplace can help you to achieve more success. However, these goals must be accompanied by a plan of action. If you are new to goal setting, start by setting small, achievable goals that are “doable.”

Emotional intelligence
Controlling and regulating your emotions can have a big impact on the work you produce and your ability to work alongside others. For example, managing stress and avoiding procrastination can help you to meet deadlines and work more efficiently as a team member. High levels of emotional intelligence can also foster good relationships with your colleagues, community members and customers.
