Career Boosting Resolutions for Professional Growth in 2020

Traditionally, people around the world write their resolutions before the start of a new year. Because it is believed that the start of the New Year breeds a good opportunity for you to set new plans. On the other hand, many people still find it intimidating to write resolutions for the fear of not being able to fulfil it. But, do not also forget that resolutions are meant to be a guide rather than a burden.

So this coming 2020, it is better to renew your fighting spirit and take advantage of the brand new opportunities ahead. Now, let this list of career-boosting resolutions help you make the year ahead to be your best one.

Remove your bad habits.

Surely, we all have our fair share of bad work habits that we wanted to get rid of. It could be overworking, skipping lunch breaks, stressing yourself out, or other things that make you feel bad. It’ll be hard, but try to slowly remove these bad habits that slow you down and hinders your professional growth.

Develop your own stress-busting techniques.

In one instance or more, you surely have experienced stress at work. We all know that stress could take a toll on your mental health especially when it happens constantly. Stress can seriously affect your productivity, and most importantly the quality of your works. So, you need to have coping mechanisms that will help ease the stress. If counting to 10 doesn’t work well for you, then you should find simple ways to help de-stress your workday.

Cultivate your sense of self-awareness.

Acknowledging your strengths, weaknesses, needs, and goals is a tremendous professional asset. Knowing what you can, what you can’t, and what to improve will give you extra encouragement to work harder. So this holidays, make sure to spend valuable time with yourself. More than honing your self-awareness, it will also help strengthen your self-confidence and mental health.

Take the plunge, take the risk.

If this year has been holding you back from doing something that would help with your self-improvement, then try again in 2020. Do not be afraid to take a risk, most importantly if it will personally be good for you.

Just like how the saying goes, “if your dream doesn’t scare you, it isn’t big enough”, let fear be the basis of how big your goal is. Say for example, if you’re nervous about public speaking, continuously do it until you get used to it. Let 2020 be the year of making peace with yourself.

Develop a new skill.

There is so much to learn about in a tech-driven business world that constantly evolves. Sticking only to your primary field of expertise is no longer enough while other people around you develop a new skill or two. Eventually, you’ll get left behind. So use these holidays as a good opportunity to learn a new skill. It could be researching, video editing, writing, or anything that would highly be beneficial to your career.

Remember that learning will never get out of style.

Make valuable connections.

In the age of social media, connections should be beyond what these apps can offer. Learn how to expand your horizons and meet new people in the same field as yours. But, be careful in choosing the people to connect with. It is better to talk to a very few intelligent people rather than just a huge number of them.

Make valuable connections that will stimulate genuine interest in you or one that you will take in life and career.

Honour your resolutions.

Listing your resolutions is already one huge step ahead of the improvements that you want to accomplish. But, pushing them forward and actually honouring them could be another big leap for you, your career advancement, and self-growth.

And while the next year brings so much hope for fresh beginnings and continued success, we here at Dynamic Business Outsourcing Solutions will unceasingly uphold the goal of providing quality and cost-effective offshore staffing services to Australian SMEs and more.

5 Tips on How to Effectively Manage Your Offshore Team

Offshoring is a well-known business practice that could play a vital role for your business in the long run. One of the reasons is keeping an offshore team cost less than keeping an in-house team. And that’s exactly the main point why most companies outsource specific tasks to overseas vendors.

While it is a wise move, there are other reasons why foreign companies hand over their tasks to offshore staffing companies.

Now, managing an offshore team doesn’t have to be difficult nor stressful. But it requires determination and a flawless strategy to make sure that everything will work out well.

However, there’s this huge question that most new business owners can’t help but ask every time.“How can you assure that things will do well if you’re not always physically present to oversee the production?

To answer that question we created an infographic about 5 effective tips on how to manage your offshore team. Though there are several ways to do it, here are some of the most practised by outsourcing companies today.

Know and understand the needs of your staff

To know and understand are two different things. When you know, all you have is specific knowledge about the matter. But when you understand, you tend to feel a certain sympathy with the people involved. So make sure to give time to talk with them about their problems and issues. Make sure that their voice is heard and offer suggestions that could help them.

Appoint reliable team leaders

The team leaders for your offshore staff will be the one to decide things on your stead. So make sure to give the authority to a highly reliable person that can efficiently handle both your processes, as well as manage the well-being of your staff. And while skills and experience are both crucial, attitude is also highly important.

Regular visit to offshore locations

Visiting your offshore location and preparing a get together for your team is another way to maintain the connection with them. Your annual appearance could help strengthen the relationship between you and your staff. It is also a great opportunity to do strategic planning with your team leaders and get to know more about your people.

Develop and maintain a communication system with your staff

The idea of offshoring is not to make your staff feel that you’re too far from them. To be able to maintain that open communication with your employees, Skype is always a good tool to use. You can regularly check on them by using the video conference option to set up meetings with the team. To ensure better communication, you must also ensure that the communication tools used by your in-house and offshore team are the same.

With a huge amount of help from today’s technology, it is now easier to manage an offshore team. Location no longer matters for there are various ways to reach out to your team even if they’re halfway around the world.
