Succeed the natural way
Getting ahead needn't be a complicated, contrived process of scheming and manipulating your way to the top. It ca be as simple and natural as "doing the right thing". Here are some tips to succeed in business the natural way:
n Develop a reputation for kindness. Genuinely caring about the needs of others - customers, managers, co-workers and suppliers alike - is a powerful key to success.
n Keep your ego in check. Be willing to put aside your agenda to benefit mutual goals.
n Remain positive. Resist the impulse to get entwined in the office grapevine. Instead of complaining, try to look at negative situations another way and make a point to say positive things about people, instead of joining in on office feuds.
n Work hard. Your first priority should be to do the best you can to meet the goals and those of the organisation you work for. Office politics, co-workers mood swings and petty arguments will usually take care of themselves, if you overlook them.
n Keep your word. Don't make commitments you can't keep. Consider verbal promises as contracts and write them down to ensure they're fulfilled.
While sometimes it may seem that bending the truth, playing office politics and undercutting others will help you get ahead, you're much better off conducting yourself with honesty and integrity. Not only will you build a firm foundation for success, you'll also find it easier to live with yourself during the day and to sleep well at night.
