HOW TO
SUCCEED AT WORK
1. RADIATE PASSION
● Treat and care for your organization as if it were your
own company.
● Enthusiastically give your best work then give some
more - go the extra mile.
● Great passion inspires others and collectively the
team’s performance becomes greater.
2. GO THE SECOND MILE
● Take control of your career by expanding your
knowledge. Read something new every day.
● Think of solutions instead of problems. Anticipate
your boss’ requests, prepare ahead.
● Develop resources to help others e.g. manuals,
flowcharts and standard operating procedures.
3. DO SELF EVALUATIONS
● Do periodic self-analysis to measure your progress
and identify gaps in your plans.
● What stage are you at in your career path? What is
your ultimate destination career-wise?
● Ask yourself how am I improving the company? What
is my contribution? What can I do better?
4. LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES
● You can learn a lot of lessons from mistakes and
failure.
● Admitting mistakes is not always easy to do. It is the
hallmark of maturity to admit a mistake.
● Come up with solutions for how to avoid the mistake
from happening again in the future.
5. MAKE YOUR BOSS LOOK GOOD
● Learn your boss’ working style, preferences,
strengths, weaknesses and blind spots.
● Support your boss’ strengths, turn weaknesses to
strengths or mitigate the weakness.
● Keep your boss regularly informed and updated. Ask
for your boss’ guidance when you need it.
6. BOOST YOUR HORSEPOWER
● How much work output can you do compared to
others in similar roles as yourself?
● What was your average productivity one year ago? Is
your output increasing or decreasing?
● Aim to become a top performer in your team. One
who produces fast and accurate results.
7. HAVE VISION
● Think long-term like a CEO at work. Enhance your
foresight and visioning skills.
● Think of unique ways to improve the company. Write
down ideas and present to your boss.
● Visualize 5-10 years: What will the business
environment look like? How will we cope?
8. LEARN FROM OTHERS
● One great way to increase your knowledge and skills
is by learning from your work colleagues.
● Some work colleagues are ‘human libraries’ with vast
knowledge and many years of experience.
● Keep the learning cycle moving by training others in
turn as well.
9. VOLUNTEER TO LEAD
● Leadership skills are very valuable for anyone who
aspires to rise in their career.
● Test-drive your leadership skills by leading meetings,
events & oral presentations.
● This sharpens skills e.g. managing, negotiating,
decision-making and conflict resolution.
10. BE HUMBLE AND EMPATHETIC
● No-one likes to work with an arrogant, proud or
boastful person. Cultivate a pleasant attitude.
● Being humble helps in solidifying your character and
how you interact with colleagues.
● Cultivate empathy by learning to see things from
other people’s point of view.
11. FIND A MENTOR
● A mentor can identify your blind spots and help you to
navigate your career and office politics.
● A mentor will help you think critically, challenge your
assumptions and push you to think bigger.
● An ideal mentor should have time for you and
encourages you to ask them questions.
12. LISTEN ATTENTIVELY
● Attentive listening is a critical skill in succeeding in
your job and your personal life too.
● Many people are guilty of talking too much. Please
listen keenly. Ask for clarification.
● Genuinely engage in conversations, repeat back in
your own words and ask open ended questions.
13. HAVE SELF DRIVE
● You will likely face challenges at work including self-
doubt, anxiety, low confidence and fear.
● When you fall down, pick yourself up, bounce back up
like a ball, and don’t give up.
● Establish a reputation as a go-to person who
perseveres and solves problems.
14. SPEAK UP
● Learn the art of making your voice heard; tactfully
speak up and ask questions respectfully.
● Confidently share ideas and opinions with your team
in an objective and respectful manner.
● When you don’t speak up your voice, ideas and
opinions will be not be known and heard.
15. EMBRACE CHANGE
● Change is a constant feature in many organizations.
● Learn to quickly analyze why changes have been
introduced and what new benefits they offer.
● Become an early adopter who will in turn guide and
train others in embracing change.
16. SEEK AND GIVE FEEDBACK
● Practice the habit of seeking feedback for continuous
growth and improvement.
● For feedback to be most effective it needs to be given
in a timely manner.
● It is advisable to always give sensitive feedback in
private.
17. BE ORGANIZED
● Plan your day, every day. Know what activities you
want to accomplish on a specific day.
● Prioritize tasks in order of importance and do the
difficult tasks at the beginning of the day.
● At the end of each day, reflect on what you did during
day, and then plan for the next day.
18. TOOT YOUR HORN, SMARTLY
● Email a one page summary of your major monthly
achievements to your boss.
● Participate in meetings or surveys, offer good ideas
that can positively impact the company.
● Organize brown bag meetings and share your skills
and train others on helpful tips and tricks.
19. UNPLUG AND RECHARGE
● If you push yourself too hard and do not include some
downtime, you risk fatigue and burnout.
● Take advantage of vacation time and holidays to
unplug and refresh your body and mind.
● Before going for vacation, work a plan with your boss
to ensure work continuity in your absence.
20. DEALING WITH AMBIGUITY
● It’s unlikely have all the information that you need
100% of the time to perform your duties.
● There is always a degree of uncertainty and
vagueness that you will encounter in your job.
● There are last minute requests, emergencies and
uncertainties. Be flexible to meet deadlines.
21. ENTREPRENEURIAL MINDSET
● Thinking like an entrepreneur is a useful skill for
becoming successful at your job.
● Adopt a laser-focused commitment to excellence in
everything you do - big or small.
● Seek ways to expand your current role. Identify new
tasks that need to be done.
22. RELATIONSHIP BUILDING
● True success is the result of working with and
through others. People help people.
● To grow, actively seek opposites. Seek company of
people who think different from you.
● Help others. Offer sincere praise. Celebrate others
successes. Remember people’s names.
