  1. Communication is essential. The best way to meet the person you are talking to is to spend time with them and talk to them. Find something that you have with them – do they have children and exercise, love sports and frequent the same coffee place or coffee shop, etc. But, avoid using gossip about coworkers, which has been proven to connect people however it can be detrimental on the work environment.
  2. Maintain your temper. Avoid negative behaviors like physical discomfort, avoidance of eye contact, or anger, when confronted with someone you don’t enjoy or like. Learn to manage your emotions, be able to disagree, and lastly respect your coworkers regardless of their real emotions.
  3. Be considerate. Find ways to do more than the essential tasks of your job. Doing nothing but working for 8 to 10 hours per day isn’t going to take you far. Offer to assist an exhausted colleague, deliver baking goods or stand by the elevator or door.
  4. Smile and greet everyone. One of the most effective ways to keep your positive energy flowing is to be happy and greet to anyone. It’s a fantastic method to begin an exchange with a colleague that you don’t have a great relationship with or to simply acknowledge the person’s presence during your busy day. Set a goal that you are remembered for being a a positive Polly rather than negative Nancy.
  5. Improve your social abilities. A large part of interacting with colleagues is knowing the social signals. Particularly in discussion groups, think about the context and adjust to the situation. That is, assess your audience first. Then, alter your character in a way that creates an alliance. Contrarily, you should not think that the social setting will follow your style and this can result in uncomfortable social situations and awkward interactions.
  6. Don’t make assumptions. You know the saying that you should never make preposterous assumptions… When you react in a rash manner to any particular situation, try to remain in a calm state and seek out everything you can. Find out the details (in non-hostile ways) from those involved, and try to get a sense of to where your colleagues are coming from , as it may not have anything to do with have anything to do with your own situation. After taking some time to consider all the information , should you respond according to the appropriate chain of commands.
  7. Avoid workplace politics. It is best to avoid the politics of office altogether. Avoid getting caught in the confusing process of picking sides deciphering the bad and good guys, or snooping around. It’s best to remain unconcerned and focused, and remain true to yourself.
