[Living]–It’s another productive Monday morning. As you are preparing for today’s work, you are probably thinking about that difficult co-worker of yours, whose office etiquette is zero. I have a 5-simple steps strategy for you.
However, before you get this strategy on how to handle a co-worker that is always on your neck and always doing the exact opposite of the office etiquettes, are you sure you are not a difficult colleague to another co-worker? Do you observe the general office etiquette?
Whatever your response is, I will still like to remind you about some general office etiquettes:
Do not go late to office, either you relieving a co-worker off duty or you are starting the day at the office. Same goes for meetings and appointments. Always keep to time. This is an important attitude that tells how your colleagues see you.
Keep the atmosphere as quiet as possible. Do not put your on speaker while making calls. Avoid laughing out too loud because you might be interrupting someone else’s concentration. Instead of gisting while working, wait till launch break. That 15minutes is enough to catch up with the latest gist.
We all know the general saying that respect is reciprocal. Always remember this when dealing with your co-workers. Don’t yell and scream at others. Compassion and empathy will serve you much better to earn respect.
Whenever you need anything form any colleagues, ensure that you take permission from the person before you take the item. Do not just take someone else’s working materials or personal belongings without their knowledge. Imagine if you have been searching for an item, only for you to see on the table of your partner who did not ask for your permission before taking it.
Always keep to these general etiquettes so that someone else wouldn’t have to apply the five simple steps I am about to reveal, on you.
So here they are:
There you go. Good luck!Please Follow Us @ThePageNg
