Keys To Achieving Job Satisfaction

Keys To Achieving Job Satisfaction

Following quite a while of overseeing individuals, instructing them at work, directing them in their vocations, and gaining from the world’s principal profession masters.

Finding or creating the career that is best for you and then learning to be successful in that career involves a process of self-discovery and self-awareness.

Of course, a little luck will always help, and there will always be some trial and error. But nothing beats knowing yourself well enough to guide your own destiny.

The tools described below are all designed to help you understand yourself well enough to architect your own career and to put yourself on a path to achieve success and job satisfaction.

Here we are sharing with you the keys to achieving job satisfaction:

1) Interest

Find out What work can you become passionate about. Doing things that you can be passionate about and excited about is probably the most important key to creating the perfect career for yourself.

When you enjoy the tasks and the type of work you do, then it really does not feel like work at all. Not everyone needs to build a career from scratch, to create something out of nothing.

Most people just need to pick the right career from a wide range of already existing careers.

It takes about 10,000 hours of practice and experience to become good at something. That’s about 5 to 8 years. Thus, to become good at a career, you have to like it enough to put in that kind of time and effort.

How do you know what types of work will interest you? Well, trial and error works, but it takes a long time – like several years. Fortunately, there are tests (assessments) you can take that will help you identify careers that you could become passionate about. These assessments only take 20 minutes.

By the way, there is no career test that will tell you the one single career that is most perfect for you. It doesn’t happen that way. Instead, you start with a list of matching careers. You narrow down the list to your top few choices and then you research those choices.

The Career Interest Test

This is our own interest based Career Test (career assessment). It has been our most popular product since we introduced it in 2000.

A list of matching careers and a list of careers to avoid, this report will explain how to narrow down the list of careers to your top 3 choices and then how to make your final decision on a career and an education. It shows you a proven way to make your final career decision.

2) Personality Type

When you first hear the term “Personality Type,” it may conjure up images of “TV personalities” or who was most popular in high school or who had a great personality. But that’s not what we are talking about.

“Personality Type” is the popular term for Psychological Type which describes how our brains are wired, how our brains function, what each of our brains is good at, and how we prefer to do things and go about our lives.

Personality type is one of the most useful tools there is for selecting the right career,

With over 7 billion people on this planet, there are obviously over 7 billion unique personalities. But, if you drill down to the core of each of these people, they are all running on one of the 16 personality types programs.

Personality type is a good starting point for deciding on one’s career. It’s not the final deciding factor. It’s just a tool to point you in a direction that has been proven to work for others.

Knowing about your personality type and how it differs from the personality types of others is one of the best ways to become more self-aware, and to learn what careers and what types of work will provide you with job satisfaction.

Here are some of the things you can learn from knowing your personality type:

  • Which careers have proven to be a good fit for people with your Type
  • What is your learning style – are you better at learning in a classroom or better with hands on learning?
  • What qualities may you have
  • What are your potential blind spots and weaknesses?
  • How you work on a team
  • What your leadership style is
  • What motivates you, what drives you
  • What changes might you see when you turn 40

Corporations and organizations use personality type for:

  • Building better and more effective teams
  • Organizational development
  • Leadership development
  • Resolving struggle

3) Your Values and Your Career

When you are just starting your career, values are usually not an issue. 25 year olds are more focused on getting their first career going and achieving some measure of success. Values are usually not an issue at 25.

But as you age, and especially as you pass 35 and approach 40, your values become more important. Then there is a good chance that your place of work, your co-workers, and maybe your boss will be stepping all over your personal values.

Your “values” are your core beliefs. Values are the things that you believe are most important to you. Your values are the things you would be willing to fight for. Not that I am suggesting you get violent.

Your values tell you what is right or wrong, good or bad.

Values are at the core of your personality. Some will stay the same throughout your life while other values change over time as you gain more life experiences.

If someone seems to offend you or do something you think is terribly wrong, that is your values talking.

(By the way, your values can be manipulated through advertising, mass media, propaganda, peer pressure, and disinformation.)

To have a great career, and to get along well with others in life, you really want to know what your values are.

For example, here are some of values:

  • Honesty and integrity
  • Hard work
  • Being successful
  • Taking care of my family
  • Helping people
  • Being dependable
  • Freedom to do my work the way I want to do it
  • Freedom to work when I want to work
  • Constant learning and new knowledge
  • Working with people who are experts in their field
  • Friends that I can relate to who share similar interests and values
  • Opportunities for creative expression

You may not have had the opportunity to discover what your personal values are. So, getting to know your values will be exciting.

Our values lie just below our normal level of awareness. Some people know their values very well, while others have not spent much time looking at their values.

The reason we utilize values in profession arranging is that employment and career fulfillment depends on your qualities particularly the more established you get to be.

4) Skills and Abilities

Skills are the ability to perform certain tasks. We all have skills.

The trick is to identify and name your skills.

The more work experience you have, the harder this is. I know several people who do can do so many different things at work, that they are unable to focus on the skills that will make them the most successful and the most satisfied. Thus, they spend their time bouncing around and never getting ahead. They are very frustrated by this.

That is the thing that the Knowdell Propelled Abilities Card Sort was intended for. It helps you distinguish your aptitudes.

In any case, it goes path past that. It helps you isolate out the aptitudes you adore utilizing and are great at, from the various abilities you have.

It will demonstrate to you what your Motivated Skills are (abilities you are great at and you appreciate).

It will demonstrate to you what your Burnout Skills are (skills you are sick of utilizing).

It will demonstrate to you your Developmental Skills (skills you want to improve).

From this, you can identify your Transferable Skills. These are the skills that you can take from job to job. These are the skills you want to highlight on your resume (CV).

It’s fun and easy to use, and it only takes a few minutes.

5) Differentiators

This last step is about how you are different and what makes you unique.

If you walked into a room with 100 other people of the same age and gender as you, all randomly selected, how many things can you list where you would be significantly different from them?

Do you have any gifts that stand out that probably would not be found in that room?

Do you have any work experience the others might not have?

Do you have any special knowledge or abilities those others might not have?

Is there something you are much better at than most people?

For example, you might say:

  • I’m a very good artist and probably better than other people.
  • I’ve been told I am a good leader and probably better than most.
  • I’m a great problem solver and in that room, I could be the best.
  • I’m a great listener.
  • I am great at sports and physical activities.
  • People say I’m good at persuading others to act.
  • I’m very articulate and can give a great speech.
  • I’ve been told I’m a very good musician.
  • I’m good at simplifying and explaining things.
  • I’m good at inventing new things.
  • I understand computers and software better than most.
  • I’m good at sports.
  • I’m incredible at offering.
  • I’ve been told I am very good at composing.
  • I’m good with my hands and settling things.
  • I’m very intuitive.
  • I’m very empathetic and great at watching over individuals.
  • People say I have a reasonable vision without bounds.

Knowing how you are different is the keys to putting yourself in the best possible career.
