Use Entrepreneurial Thinking to Excel at Your Job
Many of my speaking / consulting clients are corporations, medical associations and non-profits. Sometimes the employees feel a sense of powerlessness with all the red tape and bureaucracy. According to the book Drive, humans have an essential need for autonomy, control over their work and their destinies. A great way to gain control in your job is to assume authority over a problem and come up with a new solution. Creatively brainstorm and solve it as if it were your own business. Then go to your superior with a clearly mapped out plan of action in writing. Most managers will applaud your ingenuity and initiative, and you will feel better, with more control over your work. Plus you may have remedied an expensive and stressful problem.
