Most of the world’s employed population follows repetitive tasks on daily levels. We get up in the morning, go to our work place and try to do our best in the following 8 hours. We can all admit that sometimes we are more productive because, let’s say something interesting happened in our private life the night before, or just because we were welcomed with a funny joke from our colleague or freshly brewed coffee, but sometimes what happens is exactly the opposite.
Some people are very comfortable with their daily routines and they are grateful if the workflow goes in perfect order, while others get easily bored and fell like they are not challenged enough, so they often get displeased with their daily schedule that others find idyllic.
As responsible human beings, we should be able to manage our productiveness and spirit that we bring into our work place by ourselves, but many times it seems like the hardest thing to stretch that extra muscle in our head and give a big smile to our colleagues or set that extra effort to put all the concentration in a problem and cross it off our list.
For example, if in your college days, you were a person that was waking up and going to sleep every single day with a vision of making the next best thing, probably you’ve missed out a lot of casual conversations about the weather, the big sale at the mall or that great Bruce Springsteen concert, because you were thinking about something more constructive or you weren’t even present at the social gathering. And when one day, you find yourself in a situation to manage people, you might find it very difficult to get involved in a small talk on your lunch break or to get a positive feedback from your employee for a given task, just because of lacking some social skills.
We all make sacrifices to become what we want in our lives and we must learn that not everyone has the same life story and become more understanding of someone else’s behavior. You should not allow finding yourself in a situation when you are completely confused, why two people have a totally different reaction to your proposal or work order.
The communication between staff members in a work environment is crucial for best performance, because it’s so much easier to do our jobs well when we are motivated and happy, and for this we need to get to know everyone’s character and aspiration towards life, so we can be on the same level and speak the same language for any given situation.
Just a suggestion and something to think about, if a dog can try so hard to learn to speak the same language like its owner just to make him happy, imagine what we can do with this tool in our every day’s life.
Luckily a professional in the field of communication and human psychology like a motivational speaker, can come in great help with managing your stuff in this area. So if you have a great understanding and expertise in your work processes, you got the two most important parts in management covered, and you are good to go !
