Looking to increase your job satisfaction or your chances

When I coach my clients about these and other career-enhancing techniques,
I encourage them write down two or three ways they can immediately demonstrate
them on the job.
For example, if you want to develop your ability to speak in financial
terms, you might write:
1) Incorporate more hard data in this week's presentation.
2) Add revenue and profit impact in my regular updates to my boss.
3) Look for ways to document the cost-savings of my latest project.
The key is to get started now. Before long, these techniques will become
second nature to you. So have your pen or pencil (or computer keyboard)
handy. Write down three ways you can demonstrate each of them this week.
Then put your ideas into action!
Four Tips to Enhance Your Job Satisfaction
and Chances for Advancement
1. Speak in Financial Terms.
The higher you advance, the more bottom-line, financial responsibilities
you'll assume. It's imperative you know how to communicate accomplishments
in terms of specific, measurable results. This will clearly demonstrate
your value and enhance your credibility. Effective financial communication
will help you gain more resources, receive the appropriate financial backing,
acquire the desired head-count and secure the necessary buy-in so your
projects will be successful.
2. Reflect Well on Others.
Be sure your work reflects well on those around you. Each decision you
make, how you represent yourself at meetings, and your overall productivity
should make a positive impression. Your actions should say you are a leader
who takes initiative, has self-confidence and can handle the responsibility
required to do top-notch work.
3. Grow the Job You Already Have.
If you take on added responsibilities and do more than what is asked of
you, executives will take notice of your initiative. Employees who stand
out are rewarded and promoted. By increasing your responsibility and doing
more, you're less likely to stagnate in your position and you raise your
chance of finding more challenging projects.
4. Seek Opportunities Where Others Aren't Looking.
To notice and identify unique or unknown opportunities, think differently
than your peers. Liberate yourself from the confines of your current way
of thinking and be creative and unconventional. This involves how you
evaluate business conditions, demand, competition, industry knowledge
and technological advances. Approach each situation with a completely
different perspective. Business leaders seek opportunities where others
