means looking for answers to problems. It doesn’t mean concentrating attention on the problem itself, but is a preparedness to explore possibilities for resolving workplace dilemmas.

An employee who’s keen to take responsibility, actively seeks out opportunities to exercise their initiative beyond the scope of their job description, initiate tasks and advance new ideas. They’ll offer assistance to others when needed, look for chances to help others, show empathy and offer suggestions.
“Positive energy” means engaging with fellow employees with an optimistic frame-of-mind and contributing to conversations and team meetings in a constructive manner. In interacting with others, an employee exhibiting positive energy is cheerful, respectful, and polite. They are also approachable and engaging as opposed to inaccessible and despondent.
