3 Tips For Upgrading Your Career Now



<strong>3 Tips For Upgrading Your Career Now</strong><br /> Interpersonal Edge<br /> July 31, 2016<br /> <br /> Q. I am trying to figure out how to upgrade my career this year and wonder what habits I could learn that would take me to the next level. If I were working with you, how would you coach me to increase my pay and opportunities?<br /> <br /> A. I&rsquo;d coach you to always look for opportunities to leave everyone you touch at work better than you found them. Here are some of my top tips for moving ahead at work:<br /> &ndash;Pretend you didn&rsquo;t need your paycheck. What risks would you take, what skills would you learn, and how would you act? Ironically, when we are anxious we take the least effective route.<br /> &ndash;Every time you have a moment with someone at work, ask yourself, &quot;What does this person need, and how could I provide that?&quot; Perhaps they need encouragement, a solution or a good paraphrase from you.<br /> &ndash;Stop hearing complaints as personal attacks, and start listening for the request buried in the criticisms. People often whine rather than being vulnerable by asking for help.<br /> Because we all fear losing our paychecks, we often take the safe route. We don&rsquo;t speak up, try something new, or risk failing. We make up that one wrong move will get us fired. We fail to accurately evaluate risk in our workplaces.<br /> Constantly choosing safety means fear becomes our guiding star in our careers. You&rsquo;ll find it is impossible to get ahead when you are making every decision to avoid a mistake rather than aim for a result.<br /> <br /> I&rsquo;m not suggesting you lose all awareness that your paycheck buys groceries. I&rsquo;m asking that before you make your next workplace decision you pretend you don&rsquo;t need the money. What would you do? Now let that new awareness inform your final choice.<br /> There&rsquo;s tons of research on why people with money tend to experience more and more success. The reason they succeed is not because of their money but rather their perception of risk. Because they already have their grocery bill covered, they tend to let effectiveness rather than fear guide their decision making.<br /> <br /> A lowered level of financial anxiety also tends to make people more empathic. They can see what is going on with other people rather than being hysterically afraid they are not going to get what they need. When they see what others need, people tend to give back the support they are getting.<br /> <br /> The last word(s)<br /> <br /> Q. I work with people who seem to do nothing but criticize. Is there a reason they are so judgmental?<br /> <br /> A. Yes, as the Talmud says, &quot;We do not see things as they are. We see things as we are.&quot;<br /> <br /> (Daneen Skube, Ph.D., executive coach, trainer, therapist and speaker, also appears as the FOX Channel&rsquo;s &quot;Workplace Guru&quot; each Monday morning.
