9 behavioral mistakes that make it difficult to build a career
Behavioral sins at work
Errors are repeated, a person develops a stereotype of working behavior, and a kind of status label is assigned to him. In order to work productively and comfortably to feel in the office space, it is necessary to remember the basic rules of existence in it:
If the office does not have a dress code, try to dress for work with a focus on how other employees dress.
At the business dinner can not appear in jeans and T-shirts, and on holidays in the office wear evening dresses. The last look of fashion in everyday outfit does not necessarily help working relationships. For women to use cosmetics at work, an important rule is moderation.
Watch your speech at work and not only. Uncultured speech dramatically reduces the chances of a career.
Do not use curses in speech - regardless of gender, this is perceived negatively, automatically reducing professionalism.Do not make bawdy jokes, wanting to emphasize your sense of humor. Humor humor discord. “Poshlyak” - at work such status is not easy to change.
Make it a rule to remember the names and patronymic of fellow workers.
Do not contact the staff on "you", especially if you are a manager. It is necessary to keep with all exactly, not to express neither servility to the head, nor clear superiority to the secretary or the technical. Do not let in your address manifestations of familiarity from fellow workers. Observe subordination in official relations.
Do not start "service" novels.
Intrigues with the boss rarely have a happy ending; more often, they result in damaged reputation, change of employment or a broken career.
Do not listen or spread gossip.
To avoid rumors about your workplace, avoid reasons for this: do not flaunt personal experiences that can be interpreted in different ways. Try not to discuss on the work phone with friends, parents, the second half, the entire office, problems and opinions. Keep your views on racial, nationality and religious commitment of colleagues.
We must always remember: you are not the golden royal chervonets to please all workers.
However, one should adhere to one’s own line of conduct, one’s own opinion, one’s own point of view should be defended, having evidence of rightness. There is no need to divide the team, creating informal groups in it, acting against the common working interests. Do not change priorities for the sake of anyone else - either from cowardice or from good intentions.
Take the initiative - do not wait for you to be noticed at work, will raise wages, will be promoted.
With well done work do not detract from their merits. Modesty is a good trait, but its excessive manifestation does not contribute to career growth. Do not hesitate to compliments colleagues, do not deny that your diligence contributed to the successful completion of the task. Do not be a lifesaver for colleagues - do not rush to fulfill their requests for substitution at work or additional workload. Friendship is friendship, but due to constant orders and requests to work for “that guy”, the quality of performance of their official duties may suffer. Agree to replace someone if the result for the work done is noticed and appreciated.
Do not strive to participate in everything, do not voice your opinions in matters that do not concern you.
However, if you can clearly and reasonably give the necessary advice, speak slowly, without deviations and unnecessary details. Do not ignore public life, do not miss the general meetings and workers volunteers. Do not hold on them removed, do not make a bored look, always unplug the phone.
Keep your workplace in order.
Do not download computer work computer games and do not sit on social networks during business hours. Do not allow such blunders as leaving an important document in the copier after copying. Be careful when sending e-mail: confusion in an address can have very different consequences. Make it a rule to double-check addresses before committing to the work list.
Learn the etiquette of telephone conversations: introduce yourself and call the purpose of the call; for incoming calls call your name and call the organization of work.
Rudeness and jerking in the answers by phone are unacceptable.
Do not delay the execution of the work before the deadline.
Leave time to make edits, reconcile data and time to submit the work done.
- Don't be late for workdo not ask for leave often from the manual on far-fetched reasons - it will so easily give the impression of your lack of work.
So, you will definitely get a decent position, a good salary, if you forget the roundabout path to success.
