Ahieve new workplace rapoort by tailoring my communication to each individual
Achieve new workplace rapport by ensuring delliveries of conversation are understood.
My main work goal for 2012 is to declutter/organize my workspace so I can streamline my processes.
I want to build workplace rapport with my new team. They are older babyboomers that want respect and loyalty, and I am a Gen Y that wants to get the job done quickly and accurately in order to move on.
I work in a male dominated workplace. Whenever there's opportunities for education they are given to the men first. When I approach my Supervisor he always tells me to give other people a chance to use the education $$ and sends out an email asking them directly if they want to go on any courses. It makes me so angry when I take initiative and approach my Supervisor about these courses yet he puts the men first (they get the same emails advising of the training opportunities as I do). I find this to be so frustrating. Yet when an opportunity comes up for a permanent position (that includes a salary increase) I will be granted an interview but never the job. When I enquire why I wasn't the successful candidate they advise me I need (get this) education!!! I went to HR and they are useless.
I would like a new place to work so I can increase your own efficiency, get recognized or promoted, build your skills, or achieve new workplace rapport, there’s nothing like a new year for fresh motivation!
To have a high performing team.
To slow down and take the time once each month to write down what I have achieved in order to ensure I have what I need to promote my accomplishments at review time. Also, I want to keep track of those I have worked with on projects and their contributions in order to write a fair assessment of their work.
I have come to the realization that procastination is soo last year. So I will be pushing myself to meet the potiential everyone expects from me. I need to get out of my own way and make a difference for myself.
To stay calm when being micro managed. How to speak about concerns and being heard and knowing they won't use against you. To not let emotions and frustrations overwhelm me and jeopardize my job. Too love my work environment as much as I love my job.
I would like to get more organized and be able to deligate more work out to staff.
To have more patience with co-workers that are so negative and make our jobs difficult. To also work on my communication skills so that I can raise above and take the initiative to roll out training without being so nervous. And most of all to work on obtaining my Associates/Bachelors degree so that I qualify for advanced positions.
At work I want to get employees to be more mature and accountable by being to work on time and leaving work at the end of their shifts. I want them to be more accountable to communicate directly to their managers and to eliminate triangulation from our work environment. To accomplish this the leadership team is communicating openly and often with staff both verbally and in writing. We are making oursleves more available in person and over the phone. We hope to see reults by the start of 2013 as we understand that old habits are difficult to change.
I wish to improve my self-advocacy. I have not done a good job in the past of letting my employer know what I have accomplished. Memories are short so I set up a system that will prompt me once a month to note for myself any achievements so they will be easily accessible at year end review time. During the year, I will send email, when appropriate, to let them know I have completed a big project successfully or what I have learned from the things that did not go well and how I intent to improve in the future. This is a work in progress.
After years of working in a hostile, bullying environment, where the head manager's "clueless" buddies get the credit and promotions, I am looking for a new job. I have kept my skills up, started studying for the CPSM certification and networked in areas I would be willing to relocate to. And my house is sold! Onward and upward!
I am a person that works really hard at being perfect. This year I want to take my time with each day. I want to not become stressed too eaisly when things fall apart. I want to be a better communicator, listener, more proactice than reactive. In addition, I want to smile more, because I know this warms the hearts of the people who love me.
