We all understand that some stress is good, such as excitement. But how do you avoid pitfalls at work?  Do you recognize the things that cause you to be excessively stressed out continuously?  You have to use an effective strategy that sorts out negative impact items that may cause you to be unproductive.  Change your attitude no matter what you are going through. Try at best to be optimistic about your stressful situation.  Use your negative energy to replicate a positive impact. One way to do this is vacate your mind from stressful items.  Games are a fun way to do this.  How many times do you play video games with your kids or friends? Doesn’t your focus change no matter how hard your day at work has been?  No matter if you win or lose the game in this instance, the focus is having fun which is a mindful-based stress reduction. Releasing feel-good endorphins from doing something fun is the best way to reduce stress.

Do Employers Really Know Who to Hire?

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Operational Impact

Have you ever applied to a desired job online and are confident you will get hired? Then of course when you receive the email explaining that you do not have the experience the employer is looking for, you are truly disappointed.  Now you start doing deductive reasoning. You know it has nothing to do with your resume because your skills and experience stick like glue with the job description. For example, you have Oracle R12, and job costing experience as the job description desires for the ideal candidate. You also have experience working as a Team Lead and cross-training others. In addition, your cover letter is even an added bonus because it paints the perception of you being an “A- Player” when it comes to your work diligence. You go above and beyond your call of duty not only for creating a shine for your department, but the company as a whole. You are also a flexible type individual whom can work in a qualitative and effective mode as a Team Leader or a Contributor.   You are also described as a “Conflict Solutionist”.  Why despite your qualifications are you still not landing the job you desire? Consequently, what is it that employers are really looking for?

Managing Unexpectancy

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Operational Impact
Teamwork
You are a certified decision maker of many years. You work diligently with a strong initiative to solve complex problems and assist others the best way you know how.  You observe the workplace, and find solutions to the common problem. For each business case you encounter among all departments, you implement solutions. In addition, you not only do that, you go the extra mile to train your counterparts on how to solve complex problems with actual business cases.  This is not required of you but in the long run, it makes your manager look outstanding. Your manager applauds your efforts and reminds you that you are a “life saver”.  Nevertheless noise happens and things start to change. 
Don’t you hate it when your co-workers create challenging situations for you, although you help them, they back door the manager with negativity about you?   Don’t you hate it when you are getting adjusted to your new position but all of a sudden your manager wants to have a conference with you discussing how he or she is now in the “hot seat” with higher management because of you? How do you manage experiencing all of this irony? The answer is “creative communication”.
Communicate on a level that is not expected with your manager and fellow co-workers. Create a suggestion box for the department anonymously and welcome comments. Next after gathering a box full of comments, have a conference with the department excluding the manager 1st. Discuss all of the comments with everyone and use these comments to draft solutions. Lastly, finalize solutions and meet with your manager and present. Discuss how solutions were collaborated among the department. Discuss how the department clearly understands their duties as a whole according to the company’s operation handbook. Discuss how your diligence in the department has improved operations and include a chart to illustrate. Consequently, after your presentation it will leave the manager speechless due to the fact that you have undermined all of the negative department gossip he or she received. You have proven that the gossip in absolutely not true based on facts. Achievement: It will remove your manager from the “hot seat” with higher management because you have used the negative comments and created a positive impact.
