Tips On How To Stand Out At Work

           

Whether you’re hankering for a promotion or trying to make a great impression at a new company, these are our top five tips to really stand out at work.

 

 Arrive early, and be effective.

 We’re all used to getting to the office early enough to grab a coffee and fire up our computer before the day gets going. Instead, try doing something visible for the company such as chipping away at that dull/difficult/dire project that everyone else is ignoring.

 

Create a personal project.

Get noticed for going above and beyond your job description, and work towards that next-level promotion by creating a side project to work on in addition to your day-to-day duties. This will demonstrate your enthusiasm and work ethic as well as providing a tangible measure against which your manager can review your progress.

 

Speak first. Or wait until last.

Studies show that it’s not what we say in meetings, but when we say it that matters. People tend to remember the comment that kicked off the discussion, and the one that rounded it off, with a lot of the middle chatter turning into white noise. Make sure your contribution stands out by jumping in first, or waiting until the end.

 

Learn to say ‘no’.

Often, if we’re fighting to be noticed for that great promotion or pay rise, it’s tempting to say ‘yes’ to everything. However, piling more projects on yourself than you can handle may result in a rushed job. Saying ‘no’ shows your ability to set boundaries and prioritise.

 

Specialise.

Become the go-to person in your organisation for a particular area that you feel confident in. You’ll feel empowered and be memorable, gaining credibility amongst your colleagues that you can transfer to new projects and challenges.
