One of the greatest problems in the workplace for older workers is feeling burnt out. It is in fact a major reason why many people retire earlier than projected. With more people wanting to work well past their 50’s, it is crucial to generate new enthusiasm within your place of work.
Kerry Hannon, AARP’s Job Expert has provided us with ways in which we can appreciate our responsibilities and step up to the next place at work:
Seek out new duties: Scrutinize your current position to pinpoint a new responsibility you can add that will refresh your focus, and maybe even scare you a bit.
Fine-Tune Your Relationship With a Difficult Boss
Gently show your boss your drive to succeed by demonstrating that you’re engaged in your job, and how you can help each other.
Upgrade Your Skills
Ask if you can participate in a workplace workshop or training program. That hands-on approach can open doors to promotion and lateral move.
Ask For A Promotion
Make a list of accomplishments, and ways you’ve added to the company’s bottom line.
Find Joy Around The Edges
Find a volunteer gig that can help build relationships with workers and forge bonds across departments that you might never have had otherwise.
