Quality performance determines the perfection in a work. Low-quality performance results in substandard outputs that affect the productivity of the firm. A continuous performance like this leads to losses for a company which affects in every aspect. Not all companies in the market have all perfect employees (minding one point, companies recruit only those who are qualified for the work) present in them. If we consider a small startup, they cannot recruit only experienced candidates in high numbers as they prefer high salaries. They prefer freshers in high numbers with fewer employees having experience. Vice-versa can also happen where the startup prefers only experienced for the proper growth of the company. If we consider MNC’s where there are a lot of experienced candidates and a lot of freshers too. There are sometimes where an employee gets stuck or face other problems. In this heavy competition, handling performance is compulsory for your growth at the workplace.
I’m giving some tips to handle your performance in the workplace.
“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”― Benjamin Franklin. Before getting started with your work, always be prepared with what you’ve learned. Every time you learn a new thing, practice it more thoroughly. If you step in to work with half knowledge, you’ll get irritated to relearn the same thing which you’ve left incomplete and your time will get wasted. This degrades your performance very much. ” The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.” ― H. Jackson Brown Jr.
As we all know “Plan your Work, Work your Plan”. Every time you start your tasks, plan according to the work and situations. Stick tight with the plan and execute it perfectly. Though sometimes there may be situations that deviate you, you have to complete the task at any cost by doing overtime(if necessary), taking the help of others, etc. Try out every possible way to complete the task. By doing this, you won’t feel the burden the next day and move on to the completion of the task soon. This is the key thing to handle your performance in the workplace.
Never sit with the same thing which you’ve learned previously. Always learn new things with what you’ve at present. Let’s say you are perfect with the C++ programming language. If you sit with only C++, you cannot be able to create new applications with the latest technologies. Besides what you know, learn new things which makes you less dependent on others. Your manager checks everything which you do and may give appraisals your work by rewarding. Performance is not just doing in time what is assigned to you, but doing anything required with high attention for the completion of the task (project).
“It’s important to learn and not repeat the same mistakes. What’s done is done.”–MS Dhoni. Making mistakes is prevalent for every living being, especially humans. If you are new to work, you often learn from mistakes. Mistakes are not only the errors you make at work but also the things which happen by not overcoming your weaknesses. If you get stuck somewhere at your work, you may seek help or solve that problem by any other means. Once you made a mistake and corrected it by any source, it means you have moved over it. That is the only moment where you learn the methods to clear the mistake.
If you repeat the same mistake over and over, you are unfit for the job. Correcting the mistake not only implies clearing the error but also overcoming your weakness. This always increases your performance in the workplace. “Make improvements, not excuses. Seek respect, not attention.”―
If you are at the workplace, you are among the people rather you are alone. You might be working as a team to complete a project. To complete the project in time, every individual has to do their job given to them. If there is no proper coordination between the team members, the entire project gets dumped. If you are new to work, you might need some support in typical situations. Your team leader and manager always look after your mistakes. If you have good behavior, you may get your mistakes cleared by your team leader.
Even try to ask your manager for feedback that is not as simple or straightforward as you think as he/she is the final decision-maker. If you maintain a healthy relationship with every employee in the company, your manager will have a positive impression of you, which is very important to support you in crisis and you move forward. This will always increase your performance in the workplace.
Sometimes, you may not get support, then you have to make your mind to not fall. You have to find your own ways to solve your problems. This may take time, but you have to do it for your sake. If you stop at those critical points, then consider you are done to fail. These are the times where you should boost up yourself. Overcoming these situations makes you stand on your own feet. Never get depressed, this will affect your performance and even your career. Always read inspirational stories, quotes, how people overcome their fears, etc. “Instead of worrying about what you cannot control, shift your energy to what you can create.” ―
This will always be my point to ponder. Never forget why you’ve started the work. You have started the work to make your career successful. You have started the work to explore multiple opportunities and become a successful human in your life. There are many people depending on you.“The past is a place of reference, not a place of residence; the past is a place of learning, not a place of living.”―All the hopes are only on you. Even if you fall sometimes, raise immediately. “Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.”―
Always have a positive mindset. Never think that you are going to fail. Always hope for the best. If you are given work, always put your best into it and complete the work on time. Sometimes your submission gets delayed, your work may not be perfect due to some indispensable reasons, you may scoreless in any assessment of yours, etc., These are the moments where you have to stay strong and have a positive mindset. Always learn from your mistakes as said and never repeat them. “There is a way to turn negative thinking to positive thinking, it means seeing the positives and not focusing on the negatives.”― Byron Pulsifer. Moving forward in the right direction is the key thing despite your face problems. This will always motivate you to do challenging tasks and boost your performance at your workplace.
“Better to be three hours too soon, than a minute too late.” – William Shakespeare. Always complete your work very early than the deadline given to you. The amount of time taken for work completed to that of the time given to you should always below. The lesser time you take, the more efficient you are. Though it is not possible in typical situations, try to complete the work so that it wouldn’t become horrible and riskier later. Never procrastinate your work. Managing time will always be noted by your manager and Handle your performance at the workplace appraisals, rewards will be based on how good you are at this. This is one of the key factors where your performance quality depends on.
