Daniel Lambria - Helpful qualities every young professional could use

  1. 1. BY DANIEL LAMBRIA daniellambria.com HELPFUL QUALITIES EVERY YOUNG PROFESSIONAL COULD USE
  2. 2. FOCUS We live in an age of distractions. With the siren’s song of social media, text messages, and the Internet, young professionals need to learn how to work without giving in. Doing so requires the ability to focus on a goal and get “wrapped up” in a task so that little attractions stop seeming so distracting.
  3. 3. IF YOU ARE ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT YOUR JOB, IT WILL SET YOU APART FROM YOUR CO-WORKERS, EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT THE MOST NATURALLY TALENTED PERSON IN THE WORKPLACE. ENTHUSIASTIC PROFESSIONALS STRIVE TO ALWAYS IMPROVE THEIR RESULTS. THEY WANT TO DO THINGS THE BEST WAY THEY CAN, NOT JUST FOR THEIR OWN CAREERS, BUT FOR THE GOOD OF THE COMPANY. Enthusiasm 
  4. 4. HELPFUL QUALITIES EVERY YOUNG PROFESSIONA L COULD USE Young professionals might find it difficult to establish their credentials in the workplace. Compared to the more veteran coworkers he/she undoubtedly lacks experience. Though, they can make up for their newness by projecting confidence. This includes being able to stay cool in stressful situations and being certain of what you do know. Being panicked and unsure in a situation is a quick way to lose the faith of your coworkers. CONFIDENCE Creative people are touted as a highly valuable workplace asset, but really, resourcefulness is even better. Resourceful people can creatively use what exists in their environment to their advantage, even turning challenges into advantages. RESOURCEFULNESS
  5. 5. COMMUNICATION SKILLS Communication skills include not only speaking, but also being able to write reports, send emails, and listen to directions. Depending on your job, you might find yourself having to communicate constantly, or only between tasks, but no matter what, being able to effectively communicate will improve your ability to move within the workplace, and drive your career forward.
  6. 6. No matter how smart, focused, or skilled you are, you will experience failure during the course of your career. Successful people are the ones who can bounce back from these experiences. Resilience is the ability to not only survive but profit and learn from, failure. Whether it’s a big mistake or a bad review from a superior, be prepared to face the problem head on, pick up the pieces, and keep moving. RESILIENCE Decent employees do their jobs well; good employees can both do their jobs and take up the slack for others. Sick employees, time- consuming mistakes, and sudden new deadlines can lead to companies finding themselves with extra work and no one to do it. Your ability to adapt to new tasks will impress your boss--and prove that you are ready to take on new responsibilities within the company. VERSATILITY
