I remember working for a financial company years ago and got the job through a temp agency, although I thought I was applying through the actual company. This is important because I thought since the job was through a temp agency, it was not very significant. I still learned everything I needed to do a great job but did not know my significance until I messed up on a transaction and got a phone call from the customer yelling at me that I had messed up their life. It was not all that bad and was a very simple fix but the impact was huge on me. Within 2 months I was doing work that only the best of the best were allowed to do and later became a mentor to my fellow coworkers, yes the ones that were already there. I was hired on to the company at the earliest convenience and was promoted inside of a year, in which was necessary before promotion at any one position. My job was very repetitive and seemed meaningless but could impact a customer greatly to the point of not being a customer anymore. That is a very high impact. The manager did a great job at recognizing what employees needed a little boost and which ones were doing okay. Also, he knew how to motivate each one individually as everyone is different and respond to different methods. I believe my team was successful because the manager made it his mission to encourage everyone to treat their jobs like they were the CEO. He made everyone feel important in their positions. He is now the senior manager of that department and only looking to rise up more within that company. That is how you be successful, making sure the job design of EVERY position within your company is set up for success so that your company will be very successful.

3/6/2016 Collection – MBA675­T303 Operations & Logistics in the (... ; 17/29 (Post is Read) Jerimiah, I think a lot of success comes from knowing how you fit into an organization. As an employee, I’m often asking questions about why we’re doing certain things, or why we’re doing them in that way. It helps me feel like I’m part of the process, and again, that I’m making an impact. Whenever I’m in a supervisory role, I make sure to let my people know what they’re doing has a greater impact than they might realize, because like you illustrated, they might just think they’re just doing a meaningless task. I also make sure my people have the resources they need to do their job. By resources I mean: training, mentoring, proper equipment, funding, etc… This is an important part of management that can often be overlooked, as some managers expect their employees to jump right in, learn the job and never need any help. That is how you set someone up for failure.
