Traits of Being Successful Part 2

June 24th, 2009 by admin

Work to the clock. the best thing in the world is a deadline.

 

Working to task and to the clock, keeps you crisp, focused, and efficient. The structure of deadlines and commitments improves performance in the same way a speed skaters performance improves when her coach is measuring her performance with a stop watch.

 Build championship teams. You can’t become extremely successful at anything alone. You not only need the help of others, but you need the help of the very best people you can find.

This means that you have to have all the team members talking together and you have to sell them on your plan, your vision. I often hear from clients that their staff just doesn’t want to work, doesn’t want to be told what to do, and basically hasn’t bought in to the vision of the practice.

Have high self esteem. Every one of us functions at peak levels when we align our values with our actions. In our consulting group, we insist that every client goes through a values clarification exercise at least quarterly. When your actions contradict your innermost values and beliefs, you experience stress, worry, frustration, and even anger and resentment. It has been said that every human problem can be solved by a return to values. Yet so few organizations approach workplace problems this way.
