NYSL Promotions Gives You Tips on How to Prove You Have Initiative

If you’re vying for promotion or greater responsibility within your company, it’s important that you have initiative and prove you are a self-starter. Entrepreneurs love people with enthusiasm and bounce, those who are always spouting new ideas and are willing to help out with tasks that are beyond their scope. Here at NYSL Promotions, we have a good idea of what a promising self-starter looks like, and here’s your three-step checklist.

  1. Have confidence in yourself. Believing in your capabilities within a role is important. As such, trust that you are doing a great job and always ask for help if you are finding someone challenging. This will turn heads within a company and get you noticed.
  2. Stay alert. By keeping an eye on what’s going on around you, and understanding the business model, you’ll develop new ideas and provide insights to other colleagues.
  3. Take the lead. If you’re in a team where there doesn’t seem to be much direction, you should not be afraid to lead yourself. This will ensure targets are met, while productivity and morale remains high. From here, you’ll be appreciated and remembered for the next big project or promotion that comes along.

Of course, you should couple this with flexibility and eagerness to complete big projects. By focusing on your to-do list before helping others, having a passion for the industry you work in and a fun personality, it won’t be long before you’re sitting in a plush office with a managerial title on the door.
