From the moment we enter into our professional careers or personal relationships we have expectations that are set, some verbal and others non-verbal. Per vocabulary.com. "Expectations can be described as something that is supposed to happen, like a teacher whose expectation is that everyone comes to class prepared."
Everyday, we're held to a standard to meet expectations of our internal and external stakeholders, as well as, meeting our own expectations. Today, I hope to provide you with some tips to reflect on, and then maybe apply in your own way. So, Hello Monday! it’s time for some brief tips on how to slay the day.
1. To be knowledgeable: Our external stakeholders; claimant and employers expect those that work for any company to be knowledgeable. Internal stakeholders seek out areas or individuals that have shown to be knowledgeable in certain subject matters. The goal of your leadership team should always be to provide your team with the tools and resources needed to provide information to your customers of the products you plan on providing them.
Note: That having more knowledge builds trust, and it tells those, internal and external, that you’re serious about your business, and they can rely on your knowledge.
2. Ongoing training: Knowing the high quality associates that your business has; it is essential that you strive to provide your associates with all with ongoing training you can etch into the year. As a business owner your ROI depends on the investment you put into your associates. Your associates are your biggest investment! And training is one of the biggest commodities that we/you can provide to your associates to ensure all “team-members” have the essentials to thrive.
Note: Training allows us all to become more confident in the jobs we do daily. More productive days. And may possibly induce your creativity and innovative side to promote new ideas.
3. Being Present: As leaders and/or associates we are asked and expected to “be present” when we show up! When we show up to effectively carry out our jobs were expected to fully be ready to handle business. How do you stay present? You understand they why? Why do you do what you do? Why do you show up everyday? Why is the part you play in this game so important? Once you know and understand those questions the days you don’t want to go in because you’re having a day where you need to have a “mental day.” You will actually do it, because you can’t show up for those your assisting, catering to, or helping if you’re not fully there. Being present is essential to all that are a part of the life cycle.
Note: Being present causes all parties involved to feel as though they were adequately served. Mindset is changed and it’s essential for associates to thrive in the settings they work in.
