Promotion Killers: Sloppy Work

Your work says a lot about you. Clean, complete work defines you as a professional, someone worthy of a promotion. Messy, incomplete work defines you as someone who doesn’t care – and not worthy of a promotion. I always advise my coaching clients to sweat the small stuff. It’s the small stuff, the details, that helps you create a professional image. Make sure your e-mails are well written and grammatically correct. Read them, don’t just spell check them. Practice your presentations before you give them – out loud. Anticipate questions you’ll get in a presentation and bring back up information with you so you can answer those questions. Your work is a reflection of you. It can show that you care, or that you’re just getting by. If you want to get promoted, demonstrate that you care by the quality of your work. Good enough is never good enough. Make all of your work the best it can be.

A lot of that computer and phone time is connected to the workplace. So, if we're going to be reliant on technology, we might as well take advantage of it.
