Better motivated employees lead to low turnover rates, increased production, increased morale and improve the execution of the organization's mission and increase in profitability
Derwood, MD (PRWEB) June 30, 2008
Employees who want a promotion, people anxious to keep their jobs during difficult economic times or young professionals working their way from the bottom up should pay attention to the unwritten rules of success. So says Leah Joppy, leadership consultant, business development expert and force behind Leah M. Joppy & Associates, a Maryland-based consultant firm offering services both to employers and employees.
Joppy has coined the unwritten rules 'The 5A's of Success.' These critical success factors reflect qualities every employer looks for in a strong employee but are not usually found in the employee handbook.
"Often professionals both young and old -- even highly motivated workers with impeccable academic credentials and distinguished backgrounds -- find it hard to move up the career ladder," Joppy said. "No matter the situation, savvy employees benefit by modeling the 5A's."
The 5A's of success is a real world look at the skills and characteristics employers seek: Maintaining a positive Attitude; projecting a professional Appearance; Building a mutually-supportive network of Associates, staying current with knowledge, skills and Abilities and developing a concrete and continuous learning Action plan.
Joppy's unwritten rules can even help when the issue is job retention; the 5A's can help employees who fear losing their jobs to corporate cutbacks. "Employees who master the 5A's of Success will decrease their chances of being on the chopping block when it's time for companies to downsize," said Joppy.
Both employee and employer benefit from the 5 A's:
"The 5A's can benefit new professionals and job seekers with skills that make them invaluable to any organization and can keep them on the 'keepers list'," said Joppy. Employees who internalize the 5A's typically show motivation, solid decision-making skills, and take ownership of their performance, all of which helps companies reach corporate goals.
"Better motivated employees lead to low turnover rates, increased production, increased morale and improve the execution of the organization's mission and increase in profitability," said Joppy.
