Being active in the workplace is one step towards climbing the corporate ladder. However, the Millennials, in particular, are suffering from unrealistic goals of getting ahead or a skewed attitude which, in turn, holds them back.

Although there are many factors which can contribute to the stationary position of a Millennial, here are some major features and some tips on how to surpass them!

Harsh Critic
In the technological age that we live in, speaking our mind bluntly is not only easy but is ever-present. Instead, they should be focusing on the positives and if comments do need to be made, then constructive criticism goes a long way, over simple voicing of opinions.

Content With Boundaries
As Millennials see work as an extension of their social lives, they tend to feel that work and play should receive balanced attention. While this leads to a happy lifestyle, it also means that they feel less inclined to offer more of their time to take on extra work. This said, staying late to complete the work or taking on extra responsibilities can easily result in a promotion.

Don’t Dress to Impress
In this age, young people don’t dress up for work, meaning that shorts and a hoodie are usual attire. With an improved sense of grooming and dress, they may land that position that they are dressing up for.

Blind to Office Politics
Lack of experience in the office can cause them to be unaware of how the office operates. Maneuvering their way around the ‘favorite’ may be a challenge, but they should start to look at how they can get on their boss’ good side.

They’re An Overachiever
Millennials will often attempt to get a promotion by doing twice their work load, but will quickly become frustrated when they are not automatically recognized. Instead, they should concentrate their efforts into making the company look good rather than themselves.

For business owners, they should keep a check on their employees and recognize when a Millennial is becoming complacent.
