Positive Thinking & Being Convincing

Positive thinking has a lot of truth to it. With positive thinking versus being so negative all the time, is that when you are down, you look for the bad in everything. If you are thinking as positively as you can and you only expect good things to happen to you, naturally things will seem to go more your way. Negativity breeds negativity but, being positive is contagious.

Have you ever met one of those people who are very convincing and they could probably fuss on you but, they have a certain way of persuading people to do what they want? I know a couple of people like this. These two people that I know with the ability to ask you to perform a task or they might even be getting on to you, and you will just agree to whatever it is that they are requiring. They have a way of getting the point across without coming across as offensive, bossy or just plain mean. You should be able to convey your message without yelling or raising your voice if you have a management position.

I had this boss that when she really got mad, she would spit as she talked/raised her voice. That does not make you feel positive in any way. One thing she always did at the end of her speeches, was to make sure that she tried to build you up after breaking you down. She has a very strange way of dealing with some of her best employees. At the same time, this particular company is going to move into a larger building, try to function with less employees, still see the amount of patients it once had, and probably more. It is a challenging environment to be in. You do not want to be on the receiving end of her wrath and this is not a positive experience.

You can learn a lot simply by observing others who have been successful in their fields. Remember to treat people with respect because, you can be forceful without hurting someone's feelings or upsetting them. Someone once told me that a good manager could smile at someone while disciplining them and making them feel good about themselves at the same time. I believe this takes a special talent and few really good managers possess this skill. The ones that do, have made it, in my opinion. They get people and they are good with solving problems while keeping the peace with people who sometimes have hot tempers.

Having confidence in yourself, has a lot to do with your productivity, and just your outlook on your everyday job. It will effect your relationships with others and leave you feeling stressed and tired. Have an upbeat and positive outlook will help enable other people to feel the same way.

Being Motivational

If you decide as an employee to come in each day motivated to get as much done as possible each day, others will feed off of your motivation that you want to work as hard as you do can each day. Do not just delegate to other employees but physically work as well. This will earn you some respect from associates that see you working hard physically.

Multi-tasking is a term that is used to describe someone who can do at least 3-4 things at the same time. Being able to keep your cool during these not-so-calm times, in my opinion, demonstrates leadership qualities and abilities and these are the same co-workers, associates that I want to rub shoulders with. Hanging around successful people gives you the motivation to want to be successful as well. Remember make someone feel good about themselves and you will feel better about yourself.

Getting The Respect You Deserve

When you receive the respect of your co-workers, it's kind of a natural high. You kind of just sit back and smile. Knowing that the people that do the same job as you will have your back in a questionable situation is a great ally to have on your side. People skills go along way so be sure and ask workers about their family or their day not just work. Sometimes a little friendliness goes a long way and will help everyone feel better about themselves.

To be able to observe people in leadership roles, you sometimes wonder how a person may have gotten there. Sometimes there are those however that you couldn't imagine them having another job. The leadership role that they are in just suits them fine. It has been my experience that sometimes the people that are in leadership roles have stepped on someone to get to where they are now. Not all the time, but, sometimes. These people are usually self centered and like, no love, attention. It can be funny at times.


Being Open & Accessable

Communication between departments is causing confusion. There are so many different things that we are each "responsible" for, in a way. We all feel like we are drowning and being open with each other and being able to communicate, letting your co-workers know your schedule, can put your mind a little more at ease. It will also not put added stress on your co-workers who are hunting you down for a phone call and if you don't answer they can look at the schedule and know immediately if they should continue the pursuit to find him. Also, make sure you are upfront about any rules that you expect to be adhered to. Communicating is very important in all walks of life whether it's in business or on a personal level.
