When you hear the term, “self-esteem”, what comes to your mind?
This is how I define self-esteem, “how highly or lowly you regard your worth and value.”
A high or low self-esteem greatly determines how well we communicate and interact with others, our outlook on life and even our job performance.
It’s possible for your job to also affect your self-esteem. Imagine working in a place where you are constantly disrespected, underpaid, demotivated and made to feel worthless and replicable?
This will most certainly affect how you perform. It will affect how you relate with others and how well or poorly you interact with the rest of your team.
A high or low self-esteem plays a very big role in determining how productive you are at work.
People with a high self-esteem also have high emotional intelligence and that’s why they always seem to advance more than others career-wise.
