Key to building successful business relationships - Key Attitudes that are important in the work places.

It may seem as if skills and experience are the most important characteristics of an employee, but attitude plays just as big of a role. After all, what good are great professional skills without the attitude to see it all through? There are five key attitudes that small businesses should seek out in employees to ensure a harmonious professional environment and a productive staff.


Respect is a very important attitude in the workplace and doesn't solely extend to the way in which employees interact with management. Employees should also have a respectful attitude when interacting with clients and customers as well as co-workers. Employees with this type of attitude are willing to treat other people politely and professionally, even if they disagree with the other person's point of view.


It might seem as if being prideful is a good attitude to have in the workplace, but most employees who have a prideful attitude about their work tend to work harder to excel. A prideful attitude doesn't mean that an employee won't accept help or work in teams; it simply means that the outcomes of tasks the employee does and how they contribute to the company matter a great deal to him.


A committed attitude is a valued one in the workplace. Small businesses need employees who are not only committed to the goals and initiatives that affect the bottom line, but who also are committed to their particular positions. Employees project a committed attitude by showing a willingness to do whatever it takes to fulfill the duties of their positions and via the development of new ideas to make the company even better.


Employees with an innovative attitude don't shy away from trying something new or finding a different way to do things. Small businesses need employees who can think outside of the box and innovate new ways to accomplish existing tasks and approach goals. Employees with this type of attitude know their ideas might not work out to be the best way to do something, but that the biggest failure is not at least giving new ideas a shot.


It is important to have a helpful attitude at work, whether that means assisting clients and customers with their needs or helping co-workers accomplish overall company goals. The more helpful an attitude employees have, the more people want to be around them at work and the more willing they are to partner with those employees on key projects and initiatives.
