Landing the job that you’ve always wanted is a milestone in your career life, but it should not and does not stop there. How well are you doing in this job? Are you one of those average performers or do you stand out? Working is not at all easy, especially if you have goals to hit and dreams to make. You don’t operate in a vacuum but instead, have people and systems to deal with ever day of your corporate life. It’s not at all smooth-sailing, so you need to carefully understand how you can skillfully reach your targets, get that promotion, and lead a fulfilling career. Here’s a piece of advice:
Be genuinely self-confident and accept feedback positively
We say genuine because you cannot pretend something that you’re not. Eventually, your pretension would get the better of you. Being self-assured lets you know where you excel and where you need to improve. You will earn the respect of both colleagues and superiors once they know that you’re sure of yourself. And when you’re confident, you tend to welcome criticisms constructively. Your boss will see your professionalism and maturity in the way you receive feedback with humility and the desire to improve.
