If you have growth in mind, then you must stand out from your competition and show the desired clientele who is boss. However, this can be difficult, both regarding your company and regarding your personal achievements. Standing out from the competition is not tough, but it can be if you are not sure about how to go about it. In a recent article by Chris Barez-Brown, the absolutely best thing that you can do for yourself is to be yourself and be yourself better than anyone could possibly be. In other words, you need to be your unique self, but you also really need to own that. If you do not, then it will show and you will appear to be unsure of yourself. If you are unsure of yourself, then both conformity and being an individual will blow up in your face, so to speak.
Most people have their unique personalities fully developed and are comfortable around them enough to show their true characters to their families and close friends. However, not everyone is used to or even desires to jeopardize their professionalism by showing their true personalities in the workplace all the time. This is where “owning it” comes in. Barez-Brown talks about how the lead singer of U2 always walks into a workplace and asks who the Elvis is. The “Elvis” character is someone who rocks their uniqueness to such an extent that they are better at their job than anyone else, they are more knowledgeable than anyone else, they break the rules more than anyone else, and they do all of this with confidence and fortitude.
Each company has its own personality, as well. Some workplaces stay ahead of the game through the use of edginess, throwing their personality around, and by their confidence that they will get away with it. For every other part of your business operations, safety protocols like employee drug testing are both necessary and beneficial. Workplace drug and alcohol testing creates a safe, confident environment in which to utilize these creative outlets. Call CMM Technology today: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.
