Atlas Outsourcing Ltd have listed eight attributes that make individuals reliable. "Being reliable is not rocket science. Anybody who may struggle finding or keeping jobs or friendships, may want to ask themselves if their colleagues, friends or partners find they are reliable," say Atlas Outsourcing Ltd. The firm believes that anybody can learn how to be reliable:
1. Prioritise workload
Individuals can give the impression to be unreliable when they do not know how to prioritise their workload. "Think about the deadlines you have to meet and prioritise your work accordingly to the importance of the tasks," says Matt Stewart of Atlas Outsourcing Ltd. This will help individuals deliver results when they are due.
2. Never over-promise
Atlas Outsourcing Ltd live by the statement: "Under-promise, then over-deliver". Over-promising raises expectations in others. When the task cannot be fulfilled as promised, others may be disappointed. By delivering more than expected however, others will be impressed.
3. Learn how to say No
Some people have difficulties saying no because they want to help out their colleagues or fulfil all customer queries as quickly as possible. "As honourable as this may be, it is often impossible to manage everything at the same time. Imagine the disappointment afterwards," says Matt Stewart of Atlas Outsourcing Ltd. In today's busy work environment it is important to learn how to say no sometimes and focus on priorities.
"Communication is key," find Atlas Outsourcing Ltd. It is always important to constantly communicate with others. "If you are running late for an appointment, call ahead to let others know. If you are working on a project, make sure that all information is shared in order to avoid any negative surprises. If you cannot resolve a customer query immediately, keep in touch and inform them of the reason. Keep them updated," recommends Matt Stewart of Atlas Outsourcing Ltd. By keeping people informed they know what to expect and feel they are being looked after.
5. Follow through
In order to demonstrate reliability, it is important to follow through from start to finish. "No matter what you do in life, it is crucial to follow through until the end. Reliable people don't look for excuses not to finish what they started. They just get on with it," says Matt Stewart of Atlas Outsourcing Ltd.
6. Be truthful
"Being honest may sound easy. Ask yourself when you participated the last time in gossip talk or told a lie to someone," says Matt Stewart of Atlas Outsourcing Ltd. "Giving people the impression you are not telling the truth means that they will see you as a source of unreliable information." In order to build trust it is important to provide truthful information.
7. Respect other people's time
Atlas Outsourcing Ltd say: "As important as it is to prioritise and respect your own time, it is vital to respect other people's time." In order to be taken seriously, it is important to be punctual and to thank others for their time.
8. Focus on what you can control
Some people cannot develop further because they seem to focus too long on things they cannot control. "Make it happen, show people you are able to take on big projects and focus on the things you can control." says Matt Stewart of Atlas Outsourcing Ltd.
