In his latest blog post at http://www.perwickstrom.com, entrepreneur, author, speaker and drug treatment facility CEO Per Wickstrom is highlighting proven ways to impress the boss.
“Being good at one’s job, and being impressive at the same job, are not necessarily the same thing,” commented Per Wickstrom. “Indeed, we all know people who are competent but, frankly, remain the best kept secret in their workplace. And then there are those who really make an impact and enjoy dramatic, rapid career progress. By learning how to impress the boss, competent employees can ensure that they’re noticed for all of the right reasons, too.”
According to Per Wickstrom, proven ways to impress the boss include:
- Paying attention to details
- Going the extra mile
- Staying organized
- Being prepared
- Being a helpful teammate
- “Looking the part” by dressing appropriately
- Understanding and studying the industry and trends
- Keeping track of the numbers with metrics and analytics
- Being consistent, stable and reliable
- Making the boss look good to her or his boss
Added Per Wickstrom: “Employees should keep in mind that employers really value intangible skills and abilities that aren’t necessarily captured in a test or by a score, but translate very well into the workplace. These skills and abilities include relationship building, problem solving, and especially dealing with stress, problems and even the occasional crisis now and then. It’s easy for people to be at their best when things are going well. Employers want to know how employees handle days, weeks or sometimes even months when things don’t go as planned, and some pivoting is necessary.”
