Honourable behaviour: This means always doing the right thing, not deliberately misinterpreting information, not using abusive language or engaging in malicious gossip or improper behaviour. For example, if you have a tendency to panic, to be unduly temperamental, remaining composed can be tough but itâ€™s important to demand something better of yourself.
Enterprising attitude: Being enterprising is taking responsibility for yourself and your work, doing the best you can, tackling head on any challenges you might face stepping up and exercising personal discipline. Learn to take the initiative on projects, even if they seem small or insignificant. Such an attitude will keep you proactive and help you gather new experiences, learn new skills and benefit from work with different teams. Being enterprising is also a great way of exploring your potential and can help you adapt easily in different environments
Rational thinking: This is level headedness. Itâ€™s not always easy to go with logic, especially if you feel strongly about an issue; but â€˜too much dramaâ€™ can hurt your reputation and your career. The nature of higher level jobs requires ability to handle pressure and to think through issues properly. So if you are aiming high, this is the time to challenge any unreasonable behaviours, develop critical thinking and ensure that you are not one-dimensional in your thinking.
Overwhelming gratitude: Gratitude for who you are, what you have and what you are capable of doing. This is not always easy, especially if you are surrounded by people who donâ€™t acknowledge your contribution or celebrate your competencies or an environment that pulls you down. But you must show your mettle. That way, no one can put you down.
Now take action: What one challenge must you overcome to boost your career?
