No matter what level you’re at, adopting these three behaviors is sure to impress your boss, Ora Shtull writes.
- Be a problem solver. Leave your complaints at home and bring solutions instead. Never bring up a challenge or problem without proposing at least one solution—preferably more, so your boss has a choice.
- Celebrate your team’s achievements. It can feel awkward to talk up your own accomplishments, so start by saying what your team has done well. It will make you look like a great collaborator and your success will be seen along with theirs.
- Review yourself. If it’s been a long time since your last and one doesn’t seem forthcoming, take the initiative and schedule your own. Show up prepared with lists of your achievements, goals you plan to work on, and resources and support you’ll need to succeed.
