5 Great Habits That Will Make Your Career Soar

by Evil HR Lady on November 30, 2015

Have you ever had a colleague who seemed to just intuitively know what the boss wanted and, as a result, rose rapidly while you were stuck taking notes and making coffee? Sure, sometimes it’s just luck because their personality matches the boss’s, but chances are it’s because your successful coworker has these five great habits:

1. Pay Attention to Company Culture

Some company leaders praise the out-of-the-box thinker, while others are like, “Get back in the box, right now!” Which type of company do you work for? If you’re always introducing new ideas but the company is content doing things the same way since 1972, your new ideas won’t be welcome.

On the other hand, if your company is innovative and always looking for the next best thing, resisting change will be a strike against you. This doesn’t mean, of course, that you always need to come up with new ideas or that you can’t push a stodgy company to change, but it does mean that you should act carefully. Pay attention to that culture and plan accordingly.

Saying, “Hello,” to everybody is great life advice. Our daughter followed our example. When given a car (grandfather’s now ‘beater’) she tried normal channels to get a parking permit in HS. Of course, permit denied. Friendly with the bus drivers, they allowed my daughter to park with them. Often cited here, how you treat the admin at the front desk IS part of the interview. Being nice when you don’t have to be has many benefits.
