Get Your Supervisor's Attention by Showing Good Work Ethics

Impress Your Boss The Right Way

Now that unemployment is high and economy is down,  job security is a must. One way to preserve your job is to maintain a good working relationship with your boss. There are effective ways to build good work habits to get your supervisor's attention.

First of all, you will need to communicate effectively with your manager or supervisor to find out what is expected of you. You must take the initiative to communicate on a regular basis so that you are totally aware of what your job duties and responsibilities entail and the time frame allotted in which you must complete them. You will also need to communicate with your co-workers effectively which will also prevent unnecessary conflict and chaos at work.

A boss is interested in workers that has initiative and enthusiasm. Complete your assignment on time. You must prioritize your work so that you can efficiently and effectively achieve maximum work results in a timely manner. Don't waste time doing trivial and unprofitable non-work related things, but use your time wisely. Start with things that require your immediate attention, then work from that point on, using your discretion as to what things need to be done next, and so forth. 

Listen attentively. Asking questions shows interest and an inquisitive mind. It shows your ability to expand your knowledge through seeking informative questions.

Know your boss' priorities. Most managers or supervisors have different areas of expectation to their employees that are highly regarded by them such as punctuality and dependability. It is important to find this out.

Do not make excuses. Take responsibility for your actions and admit what you did wrong. Be honest. If you make mistakes admit it. There's nothing worse than covering up for your errors at work. Eventually, your boss will find out sooner or later and it will definitely create a negative impact in your work habits.

Never complain and make suggestions instead, if there are issues you don't agree with at work.

Avoid complaining about your co-workers' work habits. This behavior does not show team work and does not promote effective working relationships. Unless it's a work related issue that cannot be resolved within each other, then going to your boss is inevitable.

Do not object change before carefully weighing the outcome. The positive results of change, whether to the organization or to you personally may not be conspicuous. Communicate your concerns to your boss and voice your opinion. Be positive.

Always remember that character counts. Building a strong positive reputation at work takes time. A foundation that is built with strong corner stones will never fade or crumble.
