It's simple really... As much as we like to tell ourselves that it doesn't matter what other people think.. it's not true. Maybe you just don't care what other people think? But don't you? I'm not talking about issues like whether or not tattoos are stylish or trashy, or if you should never wear a t-shirt if you wanna be successful. But.. lets face it... no body wants someone to walk away from them thinking negative things. Chances are you want people to like you.. you want people to want to be your friend and work with you.. maybe even admire something about you.
I know I do.
Things to consider:
Don't over share. We all have our personal lives and we all have close friends we talk about them with.. but do your boss and 10 of our co workers really need to know about the fight you had with your mother in law? Probably not..
Avoid cussing/ bad mouthing. If you talk this way.. people notice. You can say 10 nice things and 1 negative thing and what does everyone remember..? That's right... the negative. It pays to remember that!Respect not only authority... but seniority. Maybe that guy who has been here for 10 years ISNT your boss.. but if you are honest with yourself you know that he knows what he's talking about. He can help you.. use that to your advantage and respect his loyalty to whatever the situation.
