How Business & Motivation Training Can Help You Get Ahead
By Joel Garfinkle
Are you ready to advance in your career? During my business leadership and motivation training workshop, I encourage participants to make a list of a few ways they can incorporate what they have learned immediately when they return to work. This way they can get started right away to move up in their careers.
This is an example from a client who wanted to improve her ability to communicate more effectively at work when dealing with financial matters. Her list included the following:
- Add appropriate financial information to my weekly presentation
- Include the projected impact on profit and revenue in updates given to my boss
- Search for ways to highlight the cost savings achieved by my most recent project
The secret to positioning yourself for success is taking action. Just as I ask the attendees at my leadership training seminars to jot down ideas during the seminar, I’m going to ask you to do the same. Get a piece of paper and a pen so you can write down one idea that you can implement each of the following tips for developing the skills needed for business leadership.
What Motivation Training Will Teach You
- How to Communicate in Financial Terms.
Being prepared for the financial responsibilities is essential. You’ll need skills in communicating accomplishments by documenting them in a way that is easy to understand in order to demonstrate your value to the company and enhance your credibility. When you accomplish this, you’ll be able to access more resources, receive required financial backing, meet head count needs, and obtain the commitment to the project that will result in success.
- How to Reflect Positively on Others.
Make those around you look good, they will be your biggest fans. You should do everything you can to build positive relationships at work. Then you will make a positive impression on others, and you will be viewed as a leader who can be trusted to take initiative and can confidently handle the responsibilities and do exceptional work.
- Expand Your Current Job.
Go above and beyond and you will find that those in charge will take notice. To be rewarded and promoted, you will need to get the attention of management. This will prevent you from becoming stagnated in your current position.
- Find Hidden Opportunities.
Finding untapped opportunities will cause you to stand out. Expand your thinking by being creative and unconventional. Do this when you evaluate business conditions such as competition and demand, as well as when seeking to create technological advances. To advance in your career, you’ll need to find and use hidden opportunities.
