  1. 1. Do You Want To Be an Icon Like Him
  2. 2. Top 7 Habits To Make Yourself Successful In an Organizations Chandana Perera(Kevin King)
  3. 3. “Do Not Give Them Fish. Teach Them How to Fish”. We have been Entrepreneurs from the beginning of the human race, but consequent to the Industrial Revolution we have become Puppets of the System.
  4. 4. My first advice to any Corporate Executive is, Quit Your Job right Now and Follow your Passion & Love. Be an Entrepreneur. We are Born to be Entrepreneurs and Born with Entrepreneurship Skills.
  5. 5. BUT: If you are determined to Strive for a Successful Corporate career until you Retire, then I Suggest You Foster these Seven 7 Habits First
  6. 6. 1.Build Relationships - Everything Revolves Around Relationships.
  7. 7. Build good rapport with the “Social Connectors” of the Organization. They are the most influential people in the Organization. They can reverse or forward any decision of the company. They do not carry big Titles, but are Highly Influential in corporate decisions. Build a healthy relationship with your immediate Boss and also your Bosses best Friends within the company. NOT to get favors, but to build strong Links & a Safety net for you
  8. 8. Sometimes, your Qualifications, Skills, Abilities, Performances, Productivity etc. are second to the Relationships built within an Organization. Make sure, You build a Good Relationship with Peers and Managers in other departments as well
  9. 9. This is the bitter truth and the Reality. The work that you do and your achievements are bubbled up to decision makers based on your relationships.Otherwise Your Contribution in the company will be hidden in the shadows even if your are an Excellent Contributor.
  10. 10. 2. Be Faithful- Faithfulness Carries You a Long Way than You could Ever Imagine.
  11. 11. If you are fired several times in your carrier, you may wonder whether it is stupid to be Faithful. But be faithful until you are fired again. This attitude will give you benefits in your career some where down the line. Do not be Blind in your Faithfulness as it might lead to Emotional Issues
  12. 12. If you look at the TOP of the Organization, You might find that all are NOT Brilliant & Extraordinary People. Some of the guys at the TOP are the ones who showed Faithfulness to the Management during their Employment. Most bosses have job insecurity issues, even though He / She is a Linchpin in an organization. Therefore Bosses love faithful employees so that they can delegate work responsibilities and relieve themselves. No Boss delegates any work if you NOT Faithful.
  13. 13. When you decide to leave the organization leave without keeping any bad trails. Faithfulness does not mean you have to be in the same company for a life time, but until you leave you, You have to be faithful. The TOP of the Organization plays a different Ball Game. One back stabber can topple an entire organization and therefore organizations love Faithful Workers z
  14. 14. 3.Be a Learner-Never Work Just to Earn Money only, but to Gain Experience
  15. 15. This should be your stream of thought if you want to succeed in your career. “I go to my Office to Learn and end of the moth I am paid too.It is like I go to a University and University pays me at the end of the Month. Learning is Free of charge. Thank God about It”. Learn your job quickly and then learn the rest of the soft skills to shine amongst the rest of the staff.
  16. 16. The truth is , if you learn and contribute to your organization, and get tightly integrated, no organization will let you leave , no organization will wait until you ask for a raise. They will look after you in every possible way as asset for the company. This is the harsh truth which some tend to not understand. Your Boss will fight with your organization to keep you & give everything possible as Boss can not work without You.
  17. 17. Don’t get me wrong. I’m NOT advocating you to NOT Earn Good Money for the Good work that You do but this is the Strategy if You need a Good Compensation. As you join an Organization, at the interview, make sure you get the Best Remuneration Plan Possible. You must Negotiate for a Good Salary and Benefits at the interview and NOT after that. If you get a Raise or Bonus , it should be considered as a Bonus for you life. Never Work expecting a Raise.
  18. 18. If you join an organization due to a different reason other than money, then keep that in mind until you leave the company. A lot of employees get demotivated as they go along as they can NOT remember why they joined in the first place. If you need a raise and they didn’t give it, leave the organization. If you were a good enough employee , they would have given you a raise before you asked for it as organizations motivate Good Workers.
  19. 19. 4. Work Hard & Be Smart- Do NOT Stick to Your Job Description only
  20. 20. There is no substitute for working hard. If there is, let me know too. If you work Hard Enough then you Discover how to work Smartly. Otherwise you will never find ways to work smart. The main point is to work as hard as possible so that You find new ways to work smart. If you are interested in only doing the prescribed tasks and work like any ordinary employee, then you have to expect the same benefits and same treatment like others which is in my world is “Nothing”
  21. 21. Why would an organization give you more or look after you better than others when you are doing the same thing over and over again. They could replace you easily with another person, may be even for a lesser wage. As I would put it “If you DO the same thing over and over, you GET the same thing over and over”. This is the universal truth.
  22. 22. 5.Act as a Leader - Never ask for Promotions. Work and Act as you have that Position already.
  23. 23. We are in the era of Social Media and we want to show our network that we are making good progress in our lives. For that we need Good Titles at the end of our names and Good materialistic things around us. That is how we show our progress in life to others. This is the world that we are in today whether we are like it or NOT. Let us all take a reality check. If possible, We would love to have our designation Changed every year to something higher. Statistics show that Flat organizations do better in business in the current era. Therefore organizations are reluctant to create big hierarchical structures.
  24. 24. If you need a promotion, act and work as if you possess that Title or Promotion. Show that you are capable of handling those duties before you get the promotion. Gone are the days when you get the promotion before you show your talents. First show your abilities and make them promote you. Never work aiming at a Promotion as You will be demotivated if You do not get that.
  25. 25. This is the latest trend. Show you can take on the work and you will get the title that you deserve. Do NOT work hard to get a title. Just work hard to do your job efficiently, and the titles will follow you automatically. If you build good relationships and show your faithfulness, your organization will delegate a lot of work to you eventually giving you the Title or promotion that you deserved. Bottom-line “Be a Leader”.
  26. 26. 6. Be Thankful. Attitude of Gratitude Carries You a Long Way than You could Ever Imagine
  27. 27. Be Thankful for Everything. Foster an attitude of gratitude towards everything you Do & Receive in the organization. Show your Thankfulness in every possible way. You will be amazed by the responses. Don’t hold back in showing your thankfulness by positive posture, words and actions.
  28. 28. I personally practice giving a thanking card in my own handwriting to people that I should be thankful for. Send an email, give a firm shank hand , give a thanking card or do something special when you need to show your gratitude to others. Attitude of Gratitude carries you a long way NOT only in your Job but Life itself. It is a Universal Truth and Ritual.
  29. 29. 7.Be a Yes Man - Never say NO unless it goes against your Values.
  30. 30. Most of the time, You may not be aware of your real potential or skills that you are good at. A Good Boss will give you additional tasks to perform when they recognize your potential. If the organization wants to test your skills first, they might give an outside task to perform so that they can judge your abilities. If you perform well, they will understand that you can perform those skills. Therefore never refuse additional tasks when you are called upon.
  31. 31. Truth is, organization gives more work to people who are capable of doing them. You may feel it a bit unreasonable asking yourself “Why Me” every time. It is due to the law of 80/20, 20% of staff contribute to 80% of the work. If they recognize you within that 20% bucket, you are considered special and you should be happy about it. You should have the strength to refuse any tasks that are against you Values or Religious beliefs. Explain the reason for refusal in a positive manner so that the Management understands it.
  32. 32. Most of the time, wealth acquisition and your successful career are a long running process unless you try to do those in a dirty ways. Very seldom do people acquire wealth and a successful career fast. Some may try but they may lose all that is gathered with the same speed. You can NOT change the laws of the Universe or laws of Human Behavior
  33. 33. If You Want to Be a Successful Employee in an Organization, Follow these Principals as the Ten Commandments or Five Precepts In Religious Beliefs.
  34. 34. In the End, We are all Human and Organizations are collections of Humans. They Think, Behave and Influence in the Exact Same Ways.
  35. 35. There is a candle in every soul. Some brightly burning and some dark and cold. Take your candle and go light up your world & Hold it up high for all to Admire.
  36. 36. All The Best. Thank You For Your Time.
