Sedentary Work: Exerting up to 10 pounds of force occasionally and/or a negligible amount of force frequently or constantly to move objects. The job involves sitting most of the time. Jobs are sedentary if standing and/or walking are required only occasionally.
- Calmness Don’t become rattled when the pressure is on.
- Commitment to Improvement Abide by processes that have been and are being developed with a consistent effort for improvement.
- Continue to Learn The search for knowledge keeps the mind alert and active, often resulting in innovations.
- Reasonableness It is one thing to be rational; it is quite another to be reasonable. To be rational is to rigidly impose the rules of formal Logic upon life and all human behavior. Strive for a reasonable balance.
- Thoroughness and Persistence A half-hearted and shallow approach to accountabilities will spoil results. Practice Thoroughness and Persistence
- Resiliency Business can bring disappointments, frustrations, and outright disasters. Rather than naively hoping that nothing bad will ever happen to be prepared to bounce back from setbacks no matter how bad they may seem to be at the time.
- Basic Loyalty The Company’s Future is closely tied to your success: A common destiny: You play a role in embodying the spirit of the company and should demonstrate loyalty with a sense of allegiance.
- No Cynicism in the workplace! Cynics are tragic people whose self-perception is so bad that they cannot begin to imagine a world where optimism, dreaming, commitment to something greater than oneself and the desire to do something truly remarkable could possibly exist. Always “looking for the angle,” they can trust no one because they can’t even trust themselves. Cynicism, distrust, sarcasm, suspicion, skepticism, doubt, scorn and backbiting are unacceptable behaviors that have NO PLACE IN THE WORKPLACE! Be careful about how you express frustrations. How you actually feel about any situation is not the issue. The issue is how your reactions are perceived: Your reactions or perceived reactions will “set the mood” for the entire team. Be responsible.
- Smile A smile can “set the mood”.
- Maintain a good, healthy sense of humor. Try not to be terminally professional.
- Don’t worry or be concerned about failure. You represent a company that offers the best product and service in your area. Understand that the value of the products and services you offer your prospect far outweigh the investment. Be proud of that fact. Maintain a posture of confidence and conviction in what you do, who you are and the company you represent at all times.
I have read, understand and agree to follow the guidelines set forth in this Position Agreement.
