Slay The Workplace

Contrary to Webster’s definition, to slay means to simply dominate, command, and flourish abundantly. When women from all walks of life slay together it is monumental and impactful. Iconic women such as Michelle Obama, Hilary Clinton, and Oprah Winfrey take slaying to the next level. These women hone their talents and use them to inspire others. We all can slay whenever and wherever. Here are three tips to help you slay at your workplace:

1. Know your worth

Author and lecturer Marianne Williamson said, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” The way we perceive ourselves is projected onto others. Hence, thinking highly of ourselves will prohibit others to do the same. Take time out of each day and reflect on who you are. Speak the life you desire into existence and speak great things for yourself. You are your biggest cheerleader. Be the first person to encourage and motivate yourself.

2. Learn your work environment.

Understanding what is expected of you, your job duties, and how to interact with different coworkers is pivotal to your success at any company. How you conduct yourself at one company may not be acceptable at another. When I started my career after graduating from Columbus State University, I thought I knew everything there was to know about being professional. I was sadly mistaken. My manager told me something that will forever be embedded in my memory. In the sternest but most nurturing tone, she said, “Learn the game.” “What game?,” I thought to myself. I learned “the game” is in reference to your work environment. You cannot master the game of chess without comprehending the fundamentals. The same analogy can be applied in the workplace; you won’t climb the corporate ladder without knowing how to climb.

3. Think positive.

A positive mind leads to a positive life. Our thoughts manifest in actions and actions become a reality. How we feel about ourselves is a direct reflection of our inner thoughts. If you believe you can achieve – you will.

Remember ladies, women who slay together, change the world.
