Chapter 22. Key Points from Part 3 > A Positive Attitude Affects Career Success

A Positive Attitude Affects Career Success

  • Technical skills alone are not enough.

  • Make sure your attitude shows that you are one of the people your supervisor can count on to make results happen.

  • No matter what your role or responsibility is, think of yourself as a “crew member” with others like yourself–with your supervisor as the “foreman” of that “crew.” Then do your best to make this “crew” as effective as it can be.

  • As a supervisor, your positive attitude will have a powerful effect on every aspect of the performance of the people who work for you–their efficiency, their productivity, and the quality of the work they deliver.

    - Ensure that everyone on your staff is on the same page–efficiently focused on the goals in the company’s business plan.

    - Achieve productivity by basing your actions on a positive attitude that includes: encouragement and teamwork; active, two-way communication; a continuous search for better ways to do the work; and respect for the technical skills and problem-solving skills of the people you supervise.

    - Stay upbeat, focus on quality, and never overlook defective work.
