Advice

5 Ways to Spot Exceptional Employees in Nigeria

Avatar

Published

on

The Nigerian labor market is very flexible with a skilled, low labor cost, highly motivated, and productive workforce. High level of education and efficiency are common factors for spotting exceptional employees. Besides, exceptional employees are easily self-motivated and self-managed.

Another important factor used for distinguishing an exceptional employee is the personality of the employee. This informs why some people are more successful at work than others? Travis Bradberry of Forbes magazine stated that following a research done around 2016, it was concluded that the key to exceptional performance is in the personality of the employee. Bradbery (2016) stated that the results indicate that “78% of leaders consider that personality distinguishes great employees, much more than cultural adjustment with 53% and even the skills of an employee (39%)”.

However, the qualities that the leaders pointed out as part of the personality are those of emotional intelligence. Unlike personality (which never changes), emotional intelligence can be transformed and improved. So executives don’t need to look for employees who have these skills. His duty, and also that of the company, is to help the entire team to enhance their emotional intelligence to become exceptional.

In essence, a typical team does all of its planning to achieve goals, with minimal intervention from management. Exceptional employees are also known to be healthily self-critical, with a willingness to learn and a commitment to making improvements both in production and performance.

It is clear, therefore, that the key indicators of exceptional employee are high level of education, efficiency at work, self-motivation, self-management, great personality, and emotional intelligence.

However, how can we see these playing out to determine how exceptional an employee? How does one spot the level of education, efficiency at work, self-motivation, self-management, great personality, or emotional intelligence of an employee? It is by observing if the employee has the following characteristics before and after employment.

Exceptional Employees in Nigeria

Spotting Exceptional Employees in Nigeria

5 Ways To Spot An Exceptional Employee.

 Exceptional employees may be spotted using the 5 indicators below:

(1) The Employee Is Willing To Delay Gratification.

Exceptional employees work outside the range of job descriptions. Rather than expect recognition or compensation to come first, they move forward in their work, confident that they will be rewarded later, but they don’t worry if they aren’t.

(2) Exceptional Employees Tolerate Conflict.

While exceptional employees don’t seek conflict, they don’t run from it either. They can maintain their composure while presenting their positions calmly and logically.

(3) Exceptional Employees Are Focused.

Exceptional employees are not distracted by grumpy customers or disputes in the office. Rather, they know how to detect the important issues and that is why they stay focused on what matters.

(4) An Exceptional Employee Is Judiciously Brave but Courteous

An exceptional employee is willing to speak up, ask a difficult embarrassing question, or challenge an executive decision. Besides, an exceptional employee chooses the best time to do act and thinks before speaking.

(5) Exceptional Employees Control Their Ego

While the ego is part of an exceptional employee’s drive to constantly improve, they never overdo it. An exceptional employee admits when he/she is wrong and agrees to do things differently with or without correction.

Becoming an exceptional employee is a skill, an art that can be learned and practiced to efficiency. One of the ways to become an exceptional employee is to establishing open and trustworthy lines of communication with the management and co-workers.

Besides, the Human Resources (HR) department has a role to play in the building of an average employee into an exceptional employee. Rather than dismiss below average or average employees, the Human Resources (HR) team can deploy technology to improve their integration with the entity’s values. In this sense, e-learning, for example, can have great value in developing courses that convey to that person what it means to work in that company and what it contributes to society.

Another mechanism that may be used to is improve an employee’s performance is proper mentoring, that is, involving some of the people with the best reputation and knowledge within the organization to protect and accompany the toxic worker, giving them advice and offering advice whenever they need it. In this way, individual attitudes can change, although care should be taken so that it does not in any way cloud the relationship between the company and the staff.

If you can apply some techniques we will discuss below, we’re sure that you will see impressive results.

Fiverr – An Overview

Fiverr is a platform for buyers and sellers to come together and exchange services for $5 per project. It connects service providers and their prospective clients from all over the world. Even though the starting price looks small, accumulating it over many projects can accrue to hundreds of thousands of naira if the right steps are taken.

You can provide writing, editing, digital marketing, copywriting, networking, advertisement, funny videos, SEO writing, graphic design, translation and subscription services on Fiverr, amongst others.

Services on Fiverr are known as gigs.

How Does Fiverr work?

Fiverr is like other online or remote services’ marketplace. Fiverr requires registration from its users, and services provided are charged from $5 above.

Service providers are known as Sellers, while clients are known as Buyers. Buyers search for products or services, pick the one they’re most interested in, place an order and proceed to pay.

Every purchase below $20 is accompanied by a $2 processing fee and 5% processing fee on purchases above $20. Sellers can keep 80% of the fee paid for any gig they’re able to successfully complete and deliver.

3 Steps To Make Money On Fiverr In Nigeria

  1. Create Your Fiverr Account and Profile

The first step to making money on Fiverr is by signing up and creating an account. Without this account, people cannot buy or sell on Fiverr. Activate your account through a link sent to your email and create a seller’s profile. On your profile you will be able to tell potential customers what you sell and how much you sell it. As much as possible, sell yourself in perfectly tailored words. Your profile is your public CV try your best to make it as good-looking as possible.

  1. Create Your Gig on Fiverr

On Fiverr, you can provide services and pitch yourself or products in prices of your choice. Since the starting price is open to the seller, they can set their prices to whatever they want, or use Gig Packages. With this, they can offer various services for various prices.

  1. Get Clients and Start Getting Paid

When your account is ready, you can begin bidding for a buyer to place his order(s). To increase your chances of getting a client, add irresistible description, videos and images of high quality to your gigs and profile. This will help to attract a lot of potential customers to you. After getting your first customer, try to make them as happy as possible and ask for a positive feedback or review. Subsequent buyers will see the review as an attestation to your efficiency.

4 Tips to Make More Money Online On Fiverr

You might be wondering why some gigs have many clients waiting, while another identical gig goes months without getting a single order. The answer is simple: the ones with so many clients are more visible than the others. If you apply the following tips, your Fiverr business account will stand out amongst its competitors.

  1. Give Your Profile, Gig Title and Descriptions A Unique Touch

One of the most effective ways to get noticed on Fiverr is by writing SEO friendly titles and descriptions for your gigs. You can steal an idea or two from high performing accounts.

Do the same for your product description. Use keywords that are very common in successful sellers’ gigs to increase your chances of getting noticed.

  1. Grow Good Customer Reviews

Positive feedbacks are good for business on Fiverr. When prospective clients see good reviews about your business, they are most likely to pay their hard cash for your services. Most clients you have worked with are likely to leave a review of your services, so use this opportunity to get as many feedbacks as possible.

Serve your clients to their satisfaction, so that they give you a five-star rating. Avoid buying fake reviews. Follow up your customers and make sure your service was the best they’ve received yet. Accept any positive criticisms and learn from them.

  1. Ensure You Delivery Your Orders on Time

Fast delivery is gold. Fiverr loves it. If you provide services as quickly as is reasonably possible, Fiverr’s internal ranking system will put you in the preferred list. Fiverr’s ranking algorithm uses delivery time to judge your quality of service and performance.

You can set delivery time depending on the kind of service you offer, and how much it will require for you to finish a perfect job. Set your delivery time to a limit that allows you some free time for any unplanned events, like sickness and/or other issues.

You can ask for extra charges for express deliveries.

  1. Treat Your Clients with Courtesy – Be Nice and Polite

Your customer relations should be top-notch. Communicate as clearly and as politely as possible. Be quick to respond, and appealing when you do. Remember that the client is the reason you’re there in the first place. They help you make more sales and get more positive reviews on Fiverr. They’re your chance to making it big on the platform. Do your best to please them.

When you’re in a rush, unavailable, or even pissed off by the client, use respectful words that will make them feel valued and important. Of course, there will be times when you feel like calling out these clients for what they’ve done, but try as much as possible to avoid such confrontations.

Conclusion

The rule of thumb in selling Fiverr gigs is perfect service delivery. Every client goes out there looking for that.

Every. Single. Time.

Your inability to deliver to their satisfaction will chase them away to other sellers, of course.

Strive to be the bestseller there is in your niche, and avoid falling into the pool of ordinary sellers that hardly get any gigs. BE GOOD AT WHAT YOU DO. Be better, or even the best they can easily access.

Remember that Fiverr may not offer you your life’s goal. Create more channels that sell you to prospective buyers. Create a website, blog, a WhatsApp TV, or even a podcast, depending on your niche.
