Every professional can increase his value a hundredfold. Without exception, I am very sure of this. But not everyone wants to.
“Don’t work as if you own the company. Work according to what you get from your organization”.
I often read ideas like this on Facebook. Sometimes, I catch myself scratching my head. Because many so-called professionals espoused this belief.
I am not sure how they measured the amount of work commensurate to their salaries. What is obvious to me is that they have put a price tag on their worth — and they have valued themselves at a bargain. They have traded their hours for pesos.
And their employers know this.
If you are an employer, understand that you have the moral obligation to uplevel the mindset of your employees. You must help them break free from their fixed mindsets about work.
I mean, show them the potentials available to them as professionals. I assumed that you are a very responsible person. Yours might be a small organization. If you have the dream of playing bigger, you ought to convince your employees that it is to their best interest to increase their value.
That instead of giving ” good enough for the salary”, they must promote themselves because they are willing to give more than what is expected of them.
I can teach anyone how to become the most valuable professional in any organization. Anyone who has the aspiration to make a positive difference in the lives of others can easily learn. That is because they are more open to potentialities. And also because they embrace a growth mindset.
