How to thrive at work
Posted October 4, 2012on:
Every job, no matter how great it is, has its ups and downs. Any time you get people together for eight hours a day, challenges will eventually arise. Politics, personalities, stress. The key is how to deal with all of these things and still end up looking like the star you are. Below are just a few tips borrowed from Lifescript.com to help you earn some great office karma.
Listen more. Argue less. Being good at your job is important. But being nice to work with is just as important.
Protect your reputation. Be on time, don’t take shortcuts and focus on doing your job well. It’ll go a long way toward earning you the reputation you want.
Respect your boss. You won’t like every manager you have. But suck it up and show them some respect and you’ll be much happier.
Be positive. Every place has complainers. Don’t be one of them.
Focus on your job. Most important, make doing your job your priority and you’ll earn yourself a solid place on the team.
With a little effort, you can succeed anywhere!
