There are hundreds of challenges at workplace. Each one of them unique based on the situation, person, or management. Few examples are:
New employee acclimatization
Acclimatization to a newer, challenging role
Waiting for that most sought after promotion
Coping with the change in management
Wanting a salary hike
The micro-managing boss
or The Never available boss
The irritating colleague who seems to have no responsibility
The colleague who does not share information
Or the one who thinks he is superior based on the previous accomplishments, but has no intention of performing now
The list can go on and on… These issues pose different challenges to employees in different roles or levels in the organisation. However, I think there are 4 simple steps which can resolve these issues to a great extent:
1. Be clear on what you want.
– Having a list of goals based on the life that we really want. And breaking them down to everyday tasks is very helpful.
2. Get clarity on what is bothering you.
– Often times, we are frustrated simply because of confusion. We need to analyse the situation and understand what is really bothering us. Generally, it is more than one reason that is bothering us. Once we know the exact reason, we can have a strategy to resolve each of this issue.
3. Focus on performing at your best each day without fail.
– As discussed above, everyday tasks will help in focusing on the important tasks. And keeps you from falling into the Urgent tasks quadrant all the time. Get the required motivation to do your job. Your Lead or the Manager are the best people to talk to. If you have not so healthy relationship with them, its time you build it. After all, what they want is you performing at peak everyday. Time management is also an area to look into and improve as required.
4. Be committed to the Organisations’ goals.
If you need help in any of these areas, feel free to seek help. There are people out there who would love to help you.
