Be flexible in completing tasks in an ever changing workplace. Being open to change and improvements allows you to complete work tasks in a more efficient manner. Adaptability also means adapting to the work habits and personalities of your co-workers. Each person has their own strengths and weaknesses and adapting to them allows you to work together as a more efficient team that is committed to making it a better place to work. Care enough about co-workers and residents to adapt to challenging situations.
Good relationships are built on trust, your manager wants to know they can trust what you say and do and that you will follow through on all things. Do what is right for the residents and your co-workers even if it isn’t always easy.
Be the person that requires little supervision and direction to get the job done. Take the initiative to be self-directed, once you know the job, needing no prodding from your manager. There are plenty of things to keep you busy while at work.
Be the person that inspires others. Don’t be afraid to ask other staff or management questions about any aspect of the job. Be comfortable with yourself knowing you do not need to be the one that knows everything. Admit your mistakes; recognize your strengths and weaknesses. Model for others what it means to do the right thing.

Treat other staff and residents as you want to be treated, with respect, kindness and helpful interaction. Avoid power struggles and lead by example. Be a good listener and non-judgmental.
