    Taking Initiative... The Options are Endless

    Taking Initiative... The Options are Endless





    "Taking the initiative" can mean many things--tapping inner
    creativity, tackling a persistent problem, capitalizing on
    opportunities, or creating ways to improve customer services
    or current work environment. By taking initiative in any of these
    ways, employees can elevate their visibility in the organization
    and greatly enhance their chances for recognition, learning,
    advancement, pay raises and bonuses, as well as have a more
    meaningful and exciting time at work.


    Here are some ways any employee can take greater initiative in his
    or her job, voiced in a way that you could give directly to your
    employees or managers. It's one thing to tell your employees to take
    greater initiative, but another to provide them with easy and clear
    ways to do it.


    Ways To Take More Initiative In Your Job


    Thinking Outside the Box: Innovation--thinking outside the box--
    is the spark that keeps organizations moving ever onward and upward.
    To think outside the box, look for new combinations, ask "what if"
    or develop "what-if" scenarios, consider approaches you've never
    considered before, brainstorm with others, and be a champion of new ideas.


    Doing Your Homework: Preparation is often the key to success in any
    endeavor. You will be more successful in convincing others that what
    you believe is the right thing, if you are armed and ready with the
    facts. Taking the initiative to do your homework means doing the
    basic research necessary to back up your claims, such as obtaining
    necessary information, determining costs and benefits, making
    calculations, and/or gaining buy-in from others who will be affected.


    Taking Action--Capitalizing on Opportunities: Taking action can
    often be a scary proposition. It would be much easier to wait for
    your boss to make the decision and take the responsibility to tell
    you what to do and when to do it. However, progressive companies
    realize that they need employees at all levels who are willing and
    encouraged to take chances and to make decisions--and be willing to
    take responsibility for their actions.


    Making Improvements: One of the easiest--and most effective--
    ways for employees to take initiative is to be on the lookout for
    ways to improve the work processes, products, services, and systems
    that are a vital part of how the organization does its business.
    In fact, the closer you are to an organization's actual product, the
    greater the chance is that you have more daily contact with its real
    business--its customers, clients, products, and services--than do
    those who are higher up the ladder.



    Perseverance and Persistence: Employees who excel at taking
    initiative usually must also persist in the support of the ideas
    and actions in which they believe. This type of initiative can,
    at times, include overcoming the resistance of higher-ups or of
    entrenched policies and systems that work to ensure the maintenance
    of the status quo. It often takes a certain degree of courage to
    take initiative in the first place. But to persist--even over the
    objections of your manager or others--takes even more commitment and
    courage.

    Taking initiative can be as simple as asking "what if." So, the next
    time you're doing a routine task, remember that it's the person who
    does the job who is in the best position to know how to do the job
    better--whether this improvement means identifying new ways to cut
    costs, how to make improvements to the way products are developed
    in your company, how a process might be streamlined, or how to enhance
    the level of services your customer receives.
