It’s time to move forward, look at things differently and head down a new path. Spring is the season of new beginnings, and you can take a cue from Mother Nature to refresh your workplace habits and create your own “new beginning.” And remember, you don’t need to make a drastic career move to start over.
“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” – Walt Disney
Adopt these three business practices to refresh your routine and open new doors:
- Reimagine Leadership: Regardless of job position, we believe that everyone is a leader. Take a moment at the beginning of each day to remember that you are a leader and your actions reflect your values and those of the organization. Empower yourself to find new opportunities to further develop your leadership skills. Volunteer to take on ownership of a new project. Mentor a new employee on the team. Evaluate your personal career goals and create new paths to achieve them.
- Practice Gratitude: With the sun shining, it’s hard not to have an extra spring in your step. Take this positivity and share it with your team. Providing genuine care for your people is one key to engaging employees and will directly translate into genuine care for your customers. Find new ways to appreciate the work that your employees, peers and leaders are contributing to the organization. This new level of appreciation will put a spring in the step of a happier, more engaged workforce.
- Innovate New Ideas: Take the change in scenery as an opportunity to brainstorm and think outside of the box. Move that weekly meeting from the conference room to the great outdoors. Take a field trip to spark new ideas. Innovation stems from new stimuli and spring adds bright color and fresh air to your routine. Curiosity will lead us down new paths. Become curious of your surroundings and let the creative juices flow.
