Want RESPECT in your new job? Of course you do.

Want RESPECT in your new job? Of course you do | Champion | ClevelandFocus on gaining credibility.

Let’s face it, even though you have interviewed for the position and passed all the tests, background checks, reference checks and a myriad of other challenges to get the job, the people at your new organization DON’T YET REALLY KNOW YOU. (And, you don’t know them).

Without first establishing your credibility, your employer is in control, has at best a neutral opinion of you, at best some “hope” for you. But, they WANT you to be everything they hope for and everything you can be.

By establishing your credibility up front, you will instantly begin creating MUTUAL RESPECT. This is earned respect and will go far in how you are treated.

How to establish your credibility in a new job, even if you have little experience:

  • Know everything you can about the organization, products, services, and customers, before you start. History, products, services, values, environment, customers. How the product is made. How the service is delivered. Knowledge is power and will calm your fears for being new. It will give you confidence, confidence equals ability to focus and confidence gives you a different “aura”. Confidence (not ego) begins your credibility. This is easy. Use the Internet. Use YouTube. Follow links on articles about the company. Research what your job will be there. Take time to imagine doing it.
  • Know what your job will be, and how you will be doing it. You have never operated a fastener machine before. Look it up on YouTube. Follow links to other videos or articles on the machines and how they are operated. You start your job and the manager begins to show you the machine. When you say “I saw that machine operate on YouTube videos (Five of them), and although the machines I saw were ABC machines, these QMO machines look very similar”. Your credibility just went up many notches, as will the way you are treated. The boss guy knows you did your homework. If the other guy you are starting with looks dumbfounded by the machine and asks “whaz a fass-ner machine do?” guess who has credibility and will be instantly treated with respect? ANY job and its duties are on the internet. All you have to do is basic research. The more the better.
  • The new “On Time” is 10 minutes early. We cannot stress this enough. Do not be late. If you are (during your first 90 days) your credibility will drop like a rock. Also, if you are ill, go to work, let them send you home. They can see you are ill. Credibility. No CALL OFFS.
  • Associate with the right people. Stay away from negative people, lazy people, people who love drama and the “work gangs”. Find a Mentor or groups of people who are working hard and doing what they need to do. Shy away from anyone who will tell you “Don’t worry about the rules or your boss, let me tell you what you can get away with”. Getting in with the wrong people will show a lack of judgment. Lack of judgment means your credibility will sink. If you are not sure who is good or bad, ask the boss guy, or HR. If you do, your credibility will rise.
  • Learn to be expert in your job. Focus on learning and doing. Nothing else counts. Ask good questions, think through those questions. Keep trying. Be serious. You will get it. Hang around after hours to get help you couldn’t get during work-time. The better you get, the more credibility you will gain.
  • Ask: “What else can I do?” Anytime you have down time. This is huge. Standing around does nothing for you, at all.
  • Give respect, you’ll get respect. Even if somebody is not respecting you. Others will see that you are founded in great manners.
  • Mimic the best people in the workplace. The ones who are respected. You don’t have to change who you are, just be like the best around.

Respect in the workplace is EARNED. It is two-way. As your work credibility increases, so will the respect others show you. Oh, you’ll get good raises, good assignments, good training and be in line for any promotions or special assignments. Why? Because you know all of the above and others don’t.

You are welcome.

Get Your Education, But Don't Forget This One Thing...

By Champion Personnel
June 04, 2019 Category: Candidates, Education

It seems that the government, school systems and employers (and media) are all stressing the need for more useful knowledge (learn a skill). Knowledge is good. But NEVER forget that being successful has more to do with your efforts and results than your book knowledge. Employers will hire a hard-working, enthusiastic person who wants to learn WAY before they will hire a person with theoretical knowledge who shows little or no desire/drive or Grit. And they will promote the hard charger years before the person with a piece of paper who shows no drive or motivation. Fact. No Bull. Motivation in action: the path to A Better Job. A Better Life. Ask us how.

Get Paid More. Get Promoted

It is actually easier today than 10 or 15 years ago. More people today miss more work, are late for work or put out just enough to get by. Employers are frustrated and are in urgent need of promotable people they can count on. Here are 4 things you can do to make more money, get promoted or get recognized as an outstanding employee. None of these will cost you a dime: Show up for work, every day, 5-10 minutes early. Be ready to work. This will absolutely be noticed by managers. Even if you are sick, show up and let your employer send you home. Calling off via phone or text leaves questions. Put out 100% of your best efforts. You are there. Might as well. Look for and ask for other things to do, if your job is stalled. You will get known as a doer, someone who can set a good example. Be attentive. Having a focus on your work will, again, get you noticed. People who get noticed for doing good things, acting like a good worker, get raises and more training, and promotions.

How to Tell the Right People Your Boss is a Jerk

By Champion Personnel
June 04, 2019 Category: Candidates

Tempting, isnt it? Satisfying? Could be. Do many deserve it? Yes. And no. Being a Boss or Manager is NOT easy. And most receive NO or very little training or coaching in how to be a good one. 75% of all quits today have something to do with leaving a Boss, not the company. So, when do you tell someone about a Bad Boss? After you leave? The day you leave? Weeks BEFORE you leave? Not at all? Here is what to do, if you are looking for a solution, or you want to be considered an exemplary employee (especially if you ARE going to leave, eventually, and want a good reference): 1) Make sure you are darn good at what you do, or getting there. Perhaps any negative comments from the Bad Boss have to do with your behavior or results. If your output or behavior is lacking, some of the sandpaper between you and your Bad Boss is he/she simply wearing thin about you. 2) Write down the actual incidents where the Boss is being Bad. What happened? What started it? How did it come across? Do you have
