Improve Your Personal Effectiveness At Work

PS Professional Athlete certificationWhat is Personal Effectiveness?

Whether you are working in HR, a strategist, a manager, or a business owner, how you manage your skills and time is essential to achieve maximum personal effectiveness.

Personal effectiveness is the way that a person makes use of their skills and how they use those skills to improve their overall success. Personal effectiveness incorporates the following goals:

  • Deliver high-quality work
  • Make people happy
  • Positively influence people
  • Advance in your career
  • Create and keep successful relationships
  • Earn respect from colleagues
  • Earn a lot of money
  • Become an expert in a specific field

This list continues.

People who portray personal effectiveness do not waste their skills and abilities, but instead, they make good use of them.

So, how can you become more personally effective? You need to clarify your values, goals and priorities in order to know what skills you need to grow to achieve your goals, then you can decide how to apply your skills and invest your time and effort to become more personally effective.

Tips to Improve Your Personal Effectiveness at Work

Develop a positive self-perception

Your self-perception affects your attitude towards work and life in general. Although knowledge and skills are both important to being successful, you need to also shape your behaviours as behaviours turn into habits. Develop a positive self-perception to lead you into the direction of success. Tell yourself: “I am better than I used to be.”

Set clear goals

In life, usually, what we consistently and persistently want is likely to materialise. You need to set clear, focused goals so that you can achieve more and be more productive.

Use your energy wisely

Direct your energy positively to generate positive results.  Think about what you say, what you do and how you act. How do these things affect the people around you? The more positive energy we give out, the more we will receive.

Become super organised
Clutter = ineffectiveness!!

Clutter does not just cause a disorganised desk, it causes disorganised thinking. Keeping your desk, computer files, documents and emails neat and organised will improve your focus and productivity at work.

Plan your life

We are not superhuman, therefore, whether we like it or not, we have to plan and remind ourselves to do important tasks. You can start by writing a list of all the important things you need to do every morning or evening- whichever works best for you. This will ensure more focus and less forgotten tasks.

Always set deadlines

Deadlines increase productivity, decrease wasted time and prevents delaying of work. If you set strict deadlines for all your tasks, you can effectively use all resources to complete the job as fast as possible.

Be prepared to cooperate

Some people love working in a team and others don’t, however, everyone should strive to be a team player. Be nice and civil to the people you work with, communicate efficiently and always strive to be supportive. The most successful people are team builders.

Remember to take care of your body, mind and soul…

Mental, physical and emotional capacity play a big role in how we portray ourselves to other. Make sure you take care of all aspects of your life to receive positive effects on your mind and body.

Never stop learning

Learn from superiors, peers and even people that are lower down on the career ladder than you. You will never know enough.
