Creating Influence and Impact in your Job
Do you know what your boss or your company wants from you in your job? A hot question, right? Many of us will answer-well I think so- I think I know what they want. When we apply for a position, we get interviewed, and we get a job description. However, we often do not know what contribution the position makes to the company’s overall performance. Part of the responsibility lies with the organization or the hiring manager, who should explain this to every applicant. Still, a lot of the obligation to understand what is expected from a position lies within ourselves. For example, suppose we want to impact a job or organization. In that case, we have to realize what contribution is valued the most by our leaders, and what role the position plays in the companies overall performance. In this episode, we talk about how to impact our careers by really contributing to our jobs. We also talk about how leaders can help others make an impact.
