I can contribute more – I will be held back
You are doing a good job. Your colleagues and managers are happy with your efforts, but you still feel something missing. You are not even satisfied. The good feeling in the stomach when you deliver in a way that gives yourself a kick has not been there for a long time. I want and know that I can. Do you perceive yourself as a talent?
Have you spent time telling your colleagues what talent you have – otherwise it’s unnecessarily difficult for anyone other than yourself.
I want to develop / I’m afraid to be overtaken
You are happy to work and think you have some interesting tasks. You get praise and recognition for your work and the customers will advise you. Perhaps it’s time to try something new – but what should it be? My current job has evolved in relation to the tasks I have solved, but I have not really done so many different tasks.
But how do I want to tell people who do not know me what I really can? What am I doing that is totally unique to me?
I’m looking for my call / I’m running on a side track
My skills are not being used – At work, I do not have the opportunity to do anything that I’m the best every day. ” I feel that it hurts me more than it makes me go to work. I think I’m trying to hold on, but I’m constantly being given new tasks.
The boss keeps me down – I’ll be looking for something, but it will never happen. How long do you want to wait. Are there any people who have development opportunities or is it the company that does not see the value in development? Is your market value as an attractive employee affected?
It’s not the most optimal because all research shows that employees who are allowed to regularly use at least 3 of their strengths and talents at work are both more productive, better at achieving their goals and having a higher quality of life. They are also more willing to change and are less affected by stress than their colleagues who do not use their strengths.
I’m not thriving / I’m mistaken
I lack good colleagues who can participate in professional discussions and help interpret the dilemmas we always face. I need to talk about something other than work during the day. It gives air, loosens up and gives room for thought. If I could only be allowed to spend some more time with my colleagues in the workplace then I would like to be a much happier employee.
It makes it easier to focus on what’s important, and bypassing the small annoying aspects. It requires talent to develop talent – in the first place your boss can help you, secondary yourself and your colleagues. Put your talents in play with your colleagues and experience that in an easier, professionally managed discussion, you focus on what you can and have the potential for and solve that part. It is also easier to assess whether the individual work actually makes sense and adds value.
