When it comes to the professional life, generally people think that delivering tasks on time is the only thing that matters. Technical knowledge and understanding of the work are sufficient to gain success. But the recruitment scenario is changing fast. Holistic approaches are being used by the companies to interview potential candidates.
They don’t shortlist candidates only on the basis of technical knowledge or meticulous approach. Companies look for candidates who can strike the perfect balance between the two.
Businesses become successful when their clients are happy and for this to happen the team must put their differences aside and work as a team towards a common goal. Thus, companies can’t adjust on the behavioral competency of their team members.
So, let’s have a look at the skills that will assist you in paying your bills:
Be careful about your body language
Some gestures seem rude while some gestures make the other person feel comfortable. It is important to know the difference and keep your body language soft, where you look more approachable and assistive.
Eye contact at the time of speaking is important
Not making eye contact while talking to someone makes you look non-confident or hiding facts and even the other person feels neglected. Looking in the eyes of the other person while talking to them makes you look confident and earn their trust.
Listen to the other person speaking
Listening attentively and carefully shows that you are well-mannered and considerate. Also, when you listen carefully to the person speaking, you are able to grasp things better and provide better solutions.
Respect opinions of others
At workplace difference of opinions are very common, and it is crucial to understand this to be a good team player. Even if you disagree with them, let them put across their opinion instead of interrupting them. Later, you can also keep your opinion across gently. This will also help you in managing conflicts.
Emphasize on networking
Networking doesn’t mean assisting each other with a motive. Networking means building a community based on trust and skills. It makes you come across as a people’s person. Social and trustworthy people grow more in their careers.
Take lead and initiative
Take ownership of your work and complete it before someone asks you to do that. Start convos and take initiative on tasks and complete them on time. This will help you earn respect at your workplace.
So, don’t just invest time and money on enhancing your technical skills, also work on your soft skills to become successful at work.
