Come to think of it, you spend more than half of your lifetime inside your workplace. In making a long-term and fulfilling career, you need to have your own circle. Given this, it is just very necessary that you maintain good relationships with your co-workers in the office. A harmonious relationship with your bosses, counterparts, and subordinates ensures a fun and healthy environment and thus; a good foundation to making a long-term and satisfying career. Below, listed is five tried-and-tested tips to help every employee maintain a happy workplace and a well-motivated self.
Do not be too friendly with your bosses. Being too cozy and chummy with your bosses can have its own disadvantages. First, the people surrounding you may think of it as your way of pursuing higher office by getting in with your bosses. That would not make a very smart impression. Second, when you get too close with your bosses, you have a hard time saying “no.”
Have your own circle. As the cliché goes, “No man is an island.” You need to have your own power boosters at work. Work is not always a breath of fresh air. Confiding with each other once in a while will prove to be a therapeutic outlet. The friendships found at work do not end in your office doors, they go a long way and beyond.
Treat all levels the same. If you treat your boss like England's queen, that's how you are expected to treat utility crews as well. When you treat people from all levels pleasantly, that improves your social likeability as person and as a future leader.
Ride with the flow, play with the mood. The workplace may be a haven of politics at times. You can’t do anything about that. To pull off each day, you have to ride with the flow. Do not take things too hard on you; however, if everybody's busy then keep yourself busy as well by focusing on the tasks assigned to you.
Smile as often as you can. A sincere smile will not only attract friends for work but friends for a lifetime. As mentioned above, you will need friends in order to get by.
Now, you wouldn't have to worry too much about having no reason to go to work. There's more than just
waiting for your checks come payday. A happy and harmonious workplace can be more effective in enhancing skills and personalities; thus, helping make your career more solid, long-term and very satisfying.
Networking in the workplace is vital to your success as an employee.
