Are You An Asset To Your Company?

Rodrigo “Jiggy” Manicad’s service is tutuo and crucial for GMA News. His track record includes a degree in International Broadcast Journalism from Cardiff, a British Chevening Scholarship, and a Silver Screen Award from the Directors’ Guild of America. He was eyewitness to the heroism of Marine Cpl. Angelo Abeto in combat against the Abu Sayyaf in Tipo-Tipo, and his visceral report won the Gold World Medal at the 2009 New York Festivals. If you vanish and your company goes dedma, then they’re just not that into you. Here are some secrets to establish your importance, from Alan Axelrod’s Office Superman: Making Yourself Indispensable In The Workplace (Running Press). Whip off the glasses. It’s about replacing your negative self-image into an empowering one, like when Superman replaces Clark Kent. Lamar Odom was a light weight in the LA Lakers, but in the Feb. 8 game in Cleveland against the Cavaliers, Kobe Bryant got sick and he decided at that moment to play like he has never played before, and – with his 28 points and 17 rebounds – the Lakers beat the Cavs 101-91. Look! Up in the sky! It’s about setting goals that will maximize your full potential. Sean Penn’s perfectionism is scary, but when asked by filmmaker Gus Vant Sant how he’d portray Harvey Milk, the first openly-gay elected official in San Francisco in the 70s, he said he’d bring out his human side. “I don’t think,” said co-producer Bruce Cohen, “anything could have prepared us for what he brought to the screen.” Bend steel. It’s about showcasing your abilities so they’ll know just how good you really are. Marvin Malig of Adamson Falcons was just recovering from an arm injury when he showed everybody how good he is when they beat Ateneo 12-0 at the UAAP Season 71 Baseball Jewel at the Rizal Memorial recently. The 20-year old also romped off with the major awards – MVP, Best Hitter, Best Slugger, Most Batted-Ins and Most Homeruns.
