Being A Competent Professional Is Not Everything

Being a competent professional is not everything. Henry Ford once said: “If there is one secret to success is as follows: to understand the other’s perspective and see things with their eyes.” If true, it is not enough to strive for a good education, a degree or specific technical knowledge. Who intends to achieve success with skill must know how to handle the emotions of themselves and others. Positive emotions stimulate personal and professional success, if we like and are excited about the work we do, we will be happy to meet with her. If we feel comfortable in our jobs because our co-workers are nice, cooperative and empathetic, our performance will be higher. By contrast the negative emotions holding us back: when we dislike because of the head, we involve ourselves discouraged and it cost us, commit to the job. If we are afraid of losing our job, without realizing commit more mistakes, errors during the workday. When workers live in constant fear at the prospect of losing their jobs, their ability to perform effectively decreases and suffers.

The uncertainty is detrimental to the overall business environment, peers become, first, the main competition. They begin the questions, imagination flies to potential losses: who retained employment in the next wave of layoffs? What to do to be among those who keep their jobs? And here’s another shortcoming. When employees are made to the idea that, as and how, they will not stay in this job for long, just be identified with the company and its objectives.
