What accounts for the difference between “Oh Crap It’s Monday” and “Thank God It’s Monday”? It all boils down to seven habits that can change everything about the culture of your workplace:
1. Go beyond the job description
People aren’t hired because they can do the job. Most of those who DIDN’T get the job could have fulfilled the job description. People are hired because they demonstrate the ability to see what isn’t there but should be, and to make it happen. THAT’S job security. Saying “Nobody told me” or “It’s not in my job description” is a first class ticket to harmonize with the rest of the choir singing the same sad song in the unemployment line. Instead, if you see something that needs to get done, step up and make it happen! Think like a leader. Leadership is not a position – it’s a way of being.
