Seven Prac­tices for Be­ing Great at Work

Rotman Management Magazine - - QUESTIONS FOR -

MAS­TER­ING YOUR OWN WORK

1. Se­lect a tiny set of pri­or­i­ties and make a huge ef­fort in those cho­sen ar­eas.

2. Re­design your work by fo­cus­ing on cre­at­ing value, not just reach­ing pre-set goals.

3. Es­chew mind­less rep­e­ti­tion in favour of bet­ter skills prac­tice (‘qual­ity learn­ing’).

4. Seek roles that match your pas­sion with a strong sense of pur­pose.

MAS­TER­ING WORK­ING WITH OTH­ERS

5. Shrewdly de­ploy in­flu­ence and in­spi­ra­tional tac­tics to gain the sup­port of oth­ers.

6. Cut back on waste­ful team meet­ings and make sure the ones you do run and at­tend spark vig­or­ous de­bate.

7. Care­fully pick which cross-unit pro­jects to get in­volved in, and say No to less-pro­duc­tive col­lab­o­ra­tions.
