Reality Check - Are You a Good Employee?
Every day around the world, managers and employees arrive at work to put in a full day of productive activity. Or at least that is what companies hope from their employees. But are you a good employee? In the competitive job market today, you need to have many skills and sell your accomplishments but you also need to prove that you are a good employee.
Here are some top tips for determining whether you are a good employee:
- Are you dependable? Do you show up for work on time, every time? Does your manager and your team know you are available and responsive?
- Do you communicate effectively? Does your team understand your expectations and does your boss know what you are working on? Do you reduce the number of emails or meetings required by addressing all issues concisely and thoroughly? Do you respond quickly and efficiently to questions or projects?
- Do you carry your own weight? Would your coworkers say you are a valuable member of the team? Does your manager rely on you for major projects? Are you a team player?
- Do you have a positive relationship with your coworkers, managers, and clients?
- Do you enjoy what you do? Without passion for your work, it may be hard to be a good employee.

One of the most important aspects of managing a successful team is making sure that there is open communication between all the team members and between them and management. Here are some tips for improving communication in the workplace.
A lot of people think that it isn't necessary to be genuine when you're in business. In fact, they might even think the opposite: that you're more likely to be successful when you're a little cunning or wily. We all see the effects of flattery, backbiting and scheming. It often seems like the way in which you present yourself is more important than the way you really are.
When we see successful people, we are blown away by how confident they are. They seem so casual when they appear on TV or when they're addressing a group of people. They seem to know what they're talking about when they write essays or answer questions in an interview. They carry themselves with ease.
