Building Credibility at the Workplace By Mohnish Nair

Building Credibility at the Workplace

What separates the 'performers' from the 'average' at the workplace? Why is it that a few succeed to build an image of a winner while many toil very hard but yet fail to leave a lasting impression? I am sure you too have noticed that some individuals carry a halo of reliability around them and almost everybody seem to trust and bank on them for their ability to deliver. Therefore, I have listed down a few crucial traits that one must have to build a repute and credibility of a reliable executor.
1. Be a doer
In a competitive work environment that we live in today, it becomes pivotal to have a repute of a DOER than someone who merely passes off as just another employee. Employers seek out for performers who can deliver the goods every single time. They would want to have capable individuals who can match up to the organization's goals and also go the extra mile to ensure completion of projects successfully.
2. Mr. Dependable track record
The past history and the reputation of a person in the organization play a very important role while being selected in the core team of performers. It's no secret that those who can boast of "Mr. Dependable" credibility are the ones who find themselves moving up in the corporate world.
3. High personal standards
Always aim for excellence. Expect only the best from yourself and disallow mediocrity in your performance. Always focus on achieving the highest standards in whatever you do. Don't pass off anything as complete unless you think you couldn't have done it better.
4. Keep your word
A man is known by the word he keeps. Your reputation is built based on how much you walk the talk. Always remember the golden rule of DOING what you say you will do. Be obsessed about honoring your commitments.
5. Finish Line Habit
Another important trait necessary to build amazing credibility is to be known as someone who finishes what they start. It is important you take tasks and initiatives to their logical conclusions and not just keep on starting new things but never end up completing them.
6. Time Obsession
Your reputation grows when you respect deadlines and honor them. People who are punctual and time bound own the greatest ingredient of credibility building. Remember, you will be respected when you respect time.
You can build a great reputation for yourself if you follow all of the above suggestions at your workplace.
