Innovations International Discuss Mistakes You Might Be Making At Work

PROVIDENCE, RI, July 2014 – How many of these communication fails have you committed? Recognize where you’re coming up short—and find out how to change.

Innovations International have discovered that these are the five biggest mistakes that people make at work, and share suggestions on how to fix them:

1. Handling Upsets Poorly

If you’re an overly motivated worker, dealing with setbacks at the office can be daunting. When you feel you have made a mistake it can then stop you from moving ahead. It’s unrealistic to believe you’ll never make mistakes in a long career but the ability to recover quickly is what can set you apart from the pack. Tell yourself that taking the risk, whatever the outcome is success enough. Instead of being scared to put yourself out there at work for fear of failure, set an objective to attempt at least one undertaking a month that is outside your comfort zone.

2. Failing to Self-Promote

In most work environments, it’s up to you to toot your own horn from time to time when it comes to a job well done. This is especially important when you’ve completed a task worthy of praise and your bosses don’t even seem to notice. Unless your boss comes out and tells you you’ve done a good job, don’t just assume that they have taken notice. Most workplaces are highly competitive. Leaving your hard work unmentioned allows other similarly qualified co-workers to swoop in and reap the benefits of a boss who’s forced to take notice. Keep your self-promotion targeted and low-key to make it the most effective.

3. Thinking “Me” Instead of “We”

Taking an active role in your advancement at work is important. But when you focus only on your personal success or recognition, you’re making your work about individual goals rather than goals that are good for the overall group. If your actions appear to benefit the overall health of the company, you’ll be integral to helping them achieve their bottom line, which in turn will make them more likely to want to keep you on and promote you. Always position yourself as a team player, someone who is ready and willing to take on group projects and work side-by-side with others for the betterment of everyone involved.

4. Not Asking for Feedback

In order to become successful, it’s important to evaluate your efforts frequently, and to analyze what works and what doesn’t. Occasional feedback-seeking behavior is one of the hallmarks of top professionals. Ask co-workers what you can do to become a better version of yourself at work over the next year.

5. Declining to Take on New Roles

Just doing what you were hired to do and nothing more is a big no-no. If all you do is what is listed in your job description, it’s impossible to get ahead. Consider your workplace an even playing field. Everyone there has the same qualifications, the same hardworking attitude and the same attention to detail. Stepping out of your comfort zone could be what you need to advance. After you master your current role, ask your manager for additional responsibilities that are more challenging.

Innovations International: Seven Ideas That Are Holding You Back From Your Peak Performance

Innovations International: Seven Ideas That Are Holding You Back From Your Peak Performance

PROVIDENCE, RI, July 2014 – It can be tough when it comes to getting out of your comfort zone, breaking through your fears or “faking it till your make it”, but you will be much more successful if you stop thinking about negatives and believe in yourself.

You may be surprised how much you exaggerate everything. In other words, you’re making up a bunch of excuses. As such, your full potential cannot be realized.

Here are 7 ridiculous ideas that are holding you back from being your best:

People will laugh at me

We all fall victim to this, thinking that people will laugh at us if we make a mistake, don’t be afraid of a little embarrassment. Just go for it!

I’m not good enough

You’ll never be good enough if you don’t give yourself a chance to try in the first place. Don’t aim for perfection. Make all the mistakes you can then pick yourself up and grow.

I’m scared

Never let fear hold you back, it is only a part of your imagination!

If I get this one thing done, then what comes after that?

We all allow the pressure to pile up as we keep thinking of the many tasks that lie ahead. As such, we lose focus completely. Focus at the task at hand only. Start small and soon, you will have done many amazing things.

I’m not like [Insert successful figure]

Gather all the inspiration you want but never think about how you aren’t like a specific successful person and therefore not as capable as them. You’re going to be great in your own way.

I’m an unlucky person

You should never rely on luck alone for success. What you need is a good attitude and the will to succeed and you make those choices on your own. Luck has nothing to do with that

It won’t do me any good if I fail

It won’t do you any good if you don’t try, for failure only comes when you stop trying. Failure is your best ally when it comes to your endeavors because it is through failure that you learn the most. So don’t be afraid to fail and don’t let the idea of failure hold you back.
