When the middle of the year is assessed, HR and department managers often encounter this situation when evaluating employees:
"This person has a good working attitude, that is, his ability is average, so his performance is not outstanding."
How to deal with such employees will always make everyone feel entangled. Tao Ge today recommends an article to help you understand the relationship between "ability" and "attitude".
There is a saying in the workplace, "He is a problem of ability and his work attitude is still good."
When it is usually not good enough, the "ability problem" seems to be easier to understand.
I admit that the factors that we can't fully control, such as time, opportunity, talent, personality, origin, early education, etc., are of great importance. These may set our personal "capabilities" within a certain range.
However, the power of personal choice is still too sung. There is still a broad, uncertain space between the boundaries of our capabilities at the moment and the limits that cannot be broken.
I want to share the stories of a few small partners around me and talk about why "ability" is determined by "attitude" -
The attitude of the past determines the ability of the present; the current attitude determines the ability of the future.
Because "attitude" is how far you want to push the boundaries of your "capabilities."
People with attitude, the radar is on
There was an internal training to share insights into wealth management users. I asked everyone, "If you have a wealth management product, the bank promises a return rate of 8%. Do you consider it?"
Most people in the group will answer "consider" because bank endorsements give people a very low risk and yields are higher than the average risk level product.
Then, I asked again, "There is also a wealth management company, which is run by my cousin and his classmates. The promised rate of return is 10%. Do you consider it?" "Do not consider."
"What about 15%?" "I don't even think about it!"
Because, who is your cousin's classmate, I can't believe it.
This is a simple question and answer, let the participants enter the user role and feel the trade-off between risk and benefit. This can make the training atmosphere a little more interactive.
Soon after, our team had a little brother to give people training. I suddenly heard him ask, "If there is a wealth management company, it is my cousin and his classmates, and promised 10% interest, would you consider investing?"
To be honest, the interaction I designed is really amazing. I admire this young colleague, because he sees a way that may be a bit effective, just pay attention and then have the opportunity to try it out.
People with strong abilities in the workplace have a common feature, that is, pay special attention to "how others do it, and what methods can help me do better."
Their radars are always on – keep an eye on cutting-edge trends, pondering predecessors' experiences and being sensitive to better methods. It’s like those who are learning the tyrants when they are young. They always care about what reference books and other question banks are used by other students.
The skills in the workplace, all-encompassing, dynamic development, and no "tools" can let you finish reading once and for all. How to write emails, how to effectively meet, how to manage time, how to be active in the atmosphere... Looking around, many people are demonstrating to you in daily life.
This open book shows whether we are willing to read, to ponder, to practice. It is in the blink of an eye that we slowly arm ourselves and become more efficient.
People with attitudes, good at self-study
There have always been two types of people: "passive work" and "active work" in the workplace. The former needs a little promotion, the latter learns by itself, does it by itself, and explores it by itself.
Our marketing team has a girl who is "content management", commonly known as "small series." She writes fluently and beautifully, but never uses Office software. Until one day, a project rushed to work for a PPT, and she also came to help.
I heard the project manager tell her, "Is these pictures drawn with PPT?" and she replied, "You are busy, go quickly, my own Baidu, I don't know if I will ask you again."
Finally, the PPT handed out is very professional (of course related to her writing and design). There is only one picture she will not use PPT to draw, use Photoshop to make it first, and ask everyone to do this.
A capable person has an "I can" attitude towards an unknown world.
Thanks to the Internet, the whole world is also an open book. We can know Baidu ourselves. We can ask people for advice. We can buy books for classes. We can look at the help files. We can try and learn...
There are definitely things in the world that challenge the limits of IQ and emotional intelligence, but it is often the state of "It's boring, it's hard, I can't, I will talk later". Whether it is possible to do it yourself and explore new knowledge largely determines how far we can go, how strong we are, and how good we are.
People with attitude, try their best
More than two years ago, I was in the former startup company, and the CEO proposed to advertise in the Lujiazui area. We chose the advertising space of a subway station hall and signed the speed.
Flying to Shanghai, the supplier accompanied the scene to see, a team in the team after a 90-face ugly face.
I quietly asked him, "Do you think you can't?"
It was an earlier subway line, the station hall was old and dim, and the effect was much worse than the remote viewing picture. The passengers in the station hall were in a hurry, and the visual impact of the selected area was not enough.
However, I am hesitant to hesitate, and I have decided that the schedule has been fixed. I am not sure if I can do it at this time.
After 90, I said, "I must change! I will go! I can discuss it! I have time!" Fortunately, the supplier cooperated and helped us make adjustments.
Later, I wrote the matter to the recommendation letter after 90, he won a number of famous school offers such as Kellogg, Berkeley, LBS.
To be honest, buying an advertisement in Lujiazui area is the CEO's idea. Signing this area is the decision of several bosses after the 90s. Afterwards, no one can decide that the original position will be bad. He has long said that he will apply for going abroad two years later. I did not intend to live and die with this company.
In other words, to change the position, he just "find trouble" for himself.
Only, good people have the strongest desire to do things well. And because of this, they think independently, reflect on judgments, make suggestions, and actively promote.
On the long road of work, there is the kind of "since you have done it, you have to do it well", and you have the opportunity to take on more responsibility and win more victories.
People with attitude, long flowing water
Last year, I fled a former colleague in the e-commerce industry to come to our startup company to do consumer finance. After half a year, this buddy felt that he still liked "consumption" and didn't catch "financial" and decided to return to the retail industry.
I was upset by his professional rhythm. I was very embarrassed. I used my own connections to help him find opportunities. The end result was also very good. This matter is overturned.
On the day when I went to the new job, he sent a message to me. "I went to work at XX today, and I thanked you all the friends who helped you to establish the opportunity. Thank you very much!" At the same time, I sent a thank you chat log screen.
For more than a month, I have introduced him to more than a dozen circle friends, mostly McKinsey and Wharton business alumni. Despite the addition of WeChat and the phone call, most people would have become weak friends with him, and they have forgotten from the rivers and lakes.
And this little move,
First, help me once again thank the two of us who have troubled;
Secondly, I have strengthened the information that "recommended people are very sensible" to my friends. It is easy for me to recommend people later;
Third, turning my network into his network, all in the retail circle, the people who meet will meet again.
Dealing with such people is really a good mood, good value for money, and willing to pay for him next time!
You said that this is difficult? It is true that emotional intelligence is high, and I know that he does not do all the tricks.
He has always been known for his reliableness, and he knows that the "reliable" person is set up with such a long stream of water.
This is the case with people, the brand is like this, and the same is true for doing things. There are so many truths in the world, see if you have the will to insist on doing it.
People with attitudes, keep mindfulness
After knowing a young colleague and after several conversations, I vaguely felt weird, but I couldn’t tell where the problem was.
One day, I had a different opinion from another of his leaders; things were not big, and I got a call with his leader and reached a consensus.
At that time, he stood by my side and sighed, "Hey, the bosses have different opinions, I am so hard to do."
At that moment, I understood where the problem was. That day, I gave him feedback and said to him, "Try not to think about it seriously."
Like many friends in his life, he is responsible and willing to do things, and it is easy to reveal negative emotions.
People who have been exposed to some negative energy complain that there are generally two themes, one is "I am bad luck" and the other is "XX is bad".
When the meeting was in a traffic jam, I was so bad, the traffic was bad.
The toilet is broken, I am so bad, the property is so bad.
The boss is going wrong, I am so bad, the boss is so bad.
The customer has a problem, I am so bad, the customer is so bad.
Someone misunderstood me, I am so bad, others are so bad.
Well, it is unlucky, and the environment may be quite bad. From time to time, I sighed and sighed at the chest, and I was able to eliminate the lack of detoxification and beauty. :) But in fact it is so tired, people around are tired.
Keep righteous thoughts, first of all, don't go too far to "sublimate" bad things.
The traffic jam will not fall down in the sky. In the 21st century, the toilet can be repaired sooner or later. There are always ways to solve the boss's opinions. All kinds of unfortunate things will have to catch up with dozens of hundreds of times in the whole life. Let it pass in the past.
Don't stay too long on unhappy little things, and don't let small things erode positive emotions.
Secondly, don't consciously "powerless."
I complain that the outside world is very poor, complaining about the fate of the fate, and I am a bit worried. I am not responsible for the subtext, and I am powerless to change.
The person with positive energy can immediately think about how to push things in the right direction, because the complaints are not useful.
I believe that I can change my situation. With this ambition, I can have the ability to persist in acting.
People with attitude, bring their own aperture
"Keep righteous thoughts, do your best, keep a good flow of water, open the radar, and learn by yourself."
Things are small, but people with attitudes will also become a bright spot.
Even when I bought Starbucks every day, a waiter smiled more brilliantly, and the operation was smoother. Sometimes I was concerned about the customer's "beware of hot", and I felt that my eyes were bright.
Even if a colleague asks a few more questions in the discussion, and urges everyone to think a little more, I will not go to the corporate address book to see who he is, feel that they work together, and have the honor.
This full of mindfulness and self-motivation drives us to grow at a perhaps insignificant rate, from quantitative change to qualitative change, and constantly break through the boundaries of our abilities.
In this world, there are limitations of talent, the bondage of fate, and there are many things that we can't do. However, we can try to use the "ability problem" to make excuses for escaping and escaping. If you don't try, how do you know how far you can go.
On the one hand, it is the layer of pressure on the social economy; on the other hand, it is a technological explosion, the iteration is fast, the waves after the Yangtze River push forward waves, and the former waves die on the beach.
In every era, every class, there are people who choose to try their best to be the best of themselves.
As written in the book Principles:
Nothing is more important than "understand how the real world works" and "how to deal with it." And your mentality in the process determines all the differences.
