5 THINGS YOU SHOULD NEVER DO AT WORK

18/04/2016

The 5 things you should never do at work are: 

1. Speak, behave or quit out of rage or revenge

Most people spend more hours at work than anywhere else, so it’s normal and expected that we will experience the full range of emotions while engaged in our work. If you act impulsively and rashly at work, you will likely lose much more than your self-respect.

2. Backstab your colleagues

Why do we do that? Because we lack the courage and fortitude to address the problem directly to their face. Back stabbing will only embarrass and humiliate yourself and it will come back around to bite you eventually.

3. Lie

The problem with lying is you will get found out, and lose the respect of your co-workers and employer.  If you have told lies at work – about your skills and talents, experience and background, about the status of work you’re overseeing, or about whom you are and what you are capable of, I’d highly recommend taking a long, hard look at yourself.

4. Proclaim that you’re miserable

Phrases like “miserable,” “unhappy,” “fed up,” “ready to leave,” and “need to go” are not helpful when you’re talking to your colleagues, bosses, or HR staff. 

5. Burn bridges

Every single one of your relationships is vitally important to you and your future, so craft them with care. Avoid people you don’t trust or like, but don’t burn bridges. There are hundreds of people we interact with daily who eventually could become our strongest allies, advocates and fans, if we protect and nurture our relationships as the key, enriching asset they are.
