Confident, motivated people who show initiative get more done. As a core skill, initiative can keep you on task and on track, and a higher level of initiative can have a big impact on what you achieve. Low initiative stops us from seeking new opportunities and looking for ways to do things better, and can lead to disengagement at work.
People with initiative can be an asset for any workplace, as they not only deliver increased productivity but they also motivate others to become more productive.
People who show initiative are able to:
- Look for new and better ways to do things at work
- Feel confident and positive about their performance
- Take the lead and foster a positive culture
