Is your job predominantly to interact with customers? If so, there are a few key thoughts that are necessary to keep in the forefront of your mind in order to give customers the service they deserve.
The first and probably the most important is how you feel about what you do each day at work. Do you look forward to going to work each day? Once you are there what is it that makes you feel like you are fulfilling your purpose? Can you put your finger on what exactly it is that you do that makes your job one that is satisfying to you?
How do you feel about what you do each day that shapes your overall attitude while you are there?
If asked, would the people who you serve (patients/customers/clients) say, “Yes, you can tell that (fill in your name) really likes their job, they are always so pleasant and happy?”
You may be one of those people who naturally are a “shining star with a winning attitude.” But, if you are not, there are things that you can do to cultivate this type of attitude.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Do I take pride in what I do and the service I deliver each day at work?
- Do I have a passion for what I am doing?
- Do I believe that what I am doing is important not only to those I serve, but to myself?
If you can answer yes to these questions then you are headed on the road to having a successful, winning attitude at work.
If you cannot answer yes to these questions then it is time to do some soul-searching to determine if you are in the right job and if so, what can you do to develop that winning attitude at work.
Remember your job depends on it and your customers deserve it.
