Being Zealous without Being Offensive

November 23, 2021

Being a zealous person is good quality, but being overly zealous can not only send a negative message to others but may also be considered offensive. Every manager would like to hear that their employees are excited about work. This sends the idea that the employees will focus on ‘getting the job done’. However, ‘getting the job done’ is not the most important thing, ‘getting the job done’ correctly is. The drive to work fast can be a downfall of being overly zealous, as sometimes the individual may lose focus on quality. The positive side is this individual can bring to the team a renewed excitement that was once lost.

With everything in life, you must strive for balance, not extremism on either end of the spectrum. This balance will not only bring internal stability for you but will also allow you to maintain equilibrium within your relationships.
