How To Turn Around Low Performance At Work
Low performance at work is no good. It can be an indicator something is wrong. Often we need to make a change or pivot. Either you or your leader could notice or bring up the low performance. Why you might have low performance: Don't care Personal life impacting work Poor leader / leadership Lack of support Don't have the tools needed Not aligning to the vision or bigger picture Lack of plan or schedule Poor communication Not putting in the work / effort Can't get motivated / lack of energy Not being challenged enough / not working on the right projects or type of work Little to no recognition / appreciation Not being seen or heard Doing too much Cluttered physical space Toxic work environment What to do about it: Ask yourself how you are feeling Understand expectations / goals / KPI's /etc. Create a plan Assess if you're in the right role / working for right leader / in right organization Do you need to take time off? Delegate? Rebalance workload? Ask for what you need to be successful Set clear expectations Communicate - bordering over communication efforts / progress Track progress Get your voice heard Clean, organized, distraction free workspace Follow through, follow up Understand your impact Do the things that fill your bucket Ask for continuous feedback Merch (you can get 15% off using code CAREERTALKPOD15): careertalkswag.com Paypal: paypal.me/stephdennis13 Anchor: https://anchor.fm/careertalk Amazon Wishlist: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3T3HCEGR737Y7?ref_=wl_share Steph's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/stephdennis13/ Pod Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/careertalkpodcast/ Steph's Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/stephdennis13 Pod Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/careertalkpodcast For show notes go to: http://stephdennis13.com/category/careertalk/ To work together (resume reviews, career coaching, etc.): listentocareertalk.com For the Google Survey: https://goo.gl/forms/PToleX38QgQ4EPaz1 We are written, produced, hosted and edited by Stephanie Dennis You’re awesome!!

Job Searching and Career Affirmations
List of all affirmations are in the show notes, too many to fit here :)  Why do people like or say or enjoy affirmations? Positivity Helps give you a mindset shift Affirmations are statements or declarations. What is an affirmation? Written in present tense Read as an "I" statement. Since I am reading affirmations to you, I'll use 'you' instead of 'I' Positive. For example: 'money flows easily and freely to me' vs 'I am debt free'. You want to focus on abundance, NOT debt.

Sexism In The Workplace
Sexism is complete BS. It shouldn't happen. And it does. Examples of sexism: Every time a woman is paid less than a man Every time someone tells a woman to smile Every time someone makes a comment about your looks / body Every time someone feels uncomfortable in the restroom with a trans person When someone assumes you have a different role than you do All the double standards Pink tax Feeling unsafe because of your gender Google dictionary definitions: Sexism - Prejudice, stereotyping, of discrimination,  typically against women on the basis of sex Genderism - another work for gender bias What to do: Bring awareness Call it out Check on your colleagues Find your work support system Do not accept it Talk to HR Be honest and transparent To support the show: Online Store (you can get 15% off using code CAREERTALKPOD15): careertalkswag.com Paypal: paypal.me/stephdennis13 Anchor: https://anchor.fm/careertalk For show notes go to: http://stephdennis13.com/category/careertalk/ To work together: listentocareertalk.com For the Google Survey: https://goo.gl/forms/PToleX38QgQ4EPaz1 To connect: Instagram: @stephdennis13 @careertalkpodcast Facebook: www.facebook.com/stephdennis13 We are written, produced, hosted and edited by Stephanie Dennis You’re awesome!!

Working Too Many Hours
As we've talked about before, work/life balance will never be perfect. AND there is a point where too much is too much. We are not robots and can't be expected to go 100 MPH 24/7. Two situations/reasons where we are working too many hours: Expectations we put on ourselves Expectations others set on us Tips for when we set expectations for ourselves: Set boundaries Utilize timers Set a schedule and stick to it 80-90% of the time Dig down deep and establish / determine why you feel the need / pressure to put on yourself Schedule time away Make a self care list Make a local wish list Research and understand achievement vs. perfectionism vs. compulsion vs. obsessed Establish your why Accept and embrace and encourage your failures Prioritize ALL the things Exercise / movement Meditation / spiritual / religious practice Tips for when others set expectations for us: Try to figure out if they put expectations on themselves that you are picking up Set boundaries Talk to your leader Can you add resources to the team Balance with exercise, movement, eating well
