The harder you work, the greater your rewards. These words are pounded into our brains from an early age – but are they true?
Unfortunately, our rewards are determined not just by how hard we work, but also by those we work with, and especially those we report to. If we want to succeed, a better approach is to generously build trust with the people around us.
Hard work definitely will reap rewards, but more is needed if you want to distinguish yourself… or in some cases, even keep your job. Helping others is a prerequisite before they will help you. Each day this week, add one item to your to-do list that explicitly helps your manager, a specific colleague, or your staff. If your world revolves around helping others be successful, soon their worlds will revolve around yours.
Career Insight: Investing in others’ success is key to getting a reference or referral from them later.
