DO MORE THAN WHAT YOU ARE BEING PAID FOR


The whole paradigm of HRD (Human Resource Development) revolves around one concept : How to improve the productivity of an employee ?

The company delegates this responsibility to Human Resources Department (HRD) whose job is to constantly strive to improve the work atmosphere and mindset of employees through a host of measures and increase their output. Before anything worthwhile is injected into their veins, the first thing they have to do is, change their value system.

Employees have to be motivated in such a way that their performance matters not only to their professional lives but bring a perceptible change in their personal lives. They have to be convinced that beyond money, there are some invaluable things which the money can't buy. So it is a soul-stirring exercise for which a firm ground work need to be done.

Normally the employee thinks that he or she should work to the extent of being paid for. Whenever, anything requires beyond his/ her normal competence and effort, he/ she simply throws the ball on higher managers and remain mum. Due to this, the poor soul will lag behind in terms of promotions and other incentives/ avenues.

Here comes the world of difference. He is wise who plunge into action before anybody push him or her. The person who is in his cocoon never realizes the credence of this great lesson. 

So here is one mantra for all people,  especially in private sector. Don't limit your potential. Expand your circle of relations to touch new horizons. Napoleon Hill, America's acclaimed author on "Success" in his famous book " How to sell your way through life" suggests that one should have the habit of doing more than one is paid for his job.  In a chapter exclusively devoted for this concept, Hill  dwelt at length on how Henry Ford by following this unorthodox principle reached to the pinnacle of success. Though initially, he is less educated, poor, he became the giant automobile maker of America. So it is your choice. You can ignore this important advice at your own peril.
