I am continuing to lay out simple principles supervisors,managers and bosses are looking for in their employees. We are not talking about how to brown-nose better than the next person, but instead how to be a dependable, excellent worker.
5) Admit mistakes quickly. We live in a society that avoids difficult things and always opts for the easy way out of problems. When a new employee or a seasoned one admits where they made a mistake where it’s clearly apparent takes courage and security. Bosses HATE dishonesty in their workers and if you cannot be honest with yourself about the obvious, you won’t be honest with other things. Humility is developed first by admitting need.
6) Don’t make excuses, fix the problems. Many managers in business today have mastered the art of not looking bad then blaming others for problems. Every job has problems that arise but the ones that can find ideas and solutions to the problems end up eventually running things! While there may be legitimate reasons things end up failing or not working, to make excuses or blame others rather than fix it is simply not our option. There are always unforeseen consequences to every decision we make. But godly people have the mind of Christ and access to gifts of the Holy Spirit that can fix anything! Words of knowledge and wisdom are indispensable to any enterprise. Like the SNL character says,” FIX IT!”
Is it possible that you can never get fired and always excel at work? Yes it is!
How? It is largely not because of your education level, knowledge, racial makeup, gift mix, or even personality. If you are a Christian believer there is a way that you can function in the workplace that nearly guarantees you success, all the time, in any job, working for nearly anyone, no matter how evil you think your boss is.
Here are some scriptural keys that truly work in the real world and are irresistible to bosses, managers, and supervisors everywhere:
