EMPLOYEE SAYS OFFICE POLITICS ARE A GAME OF EGO BEST TO STAY OUT OF IT

Work, for the most part, is just like the rest of your life: There are people you trust, people you like, parts of it you like, people you don’t trust, people you don’t like, and parts of it you hate.

Tips on how to navigate office politics?

Try not to get involved in office politics. It’s mostly created by egos. Biggest tip: Don’t say or email anything you wouldn’t want anyone else to see or hear. ALWAYS assume your emails and comments WILL BE FORWARDED to someone else. Re-read all of your emails and ask yourself, if this got forwarded to the entire company, what would happen?

How to form friendships in the workplace?

Just like you do in the rest of your life, but until you can trust them completely, assume they can’t be trusted and will tell everyone what you say and do.

How to be liked by most people?

Again, just like in real life. Some will like you and some won’t. Treat everyone with respect.

Tips on how to be enthusiastic and happy at work even on your worst days?

Don’t. Don’t ever fake your emotions. You can’t be enthusiastic and happy every day. Again, just be respectful to other people and don’t take your feelings out on others.

You can’t. This is how your brain is wired.

How to feel confident when you have no idea what’s going on?

NO ONE expects you to go what’s going on when you’re new. Feel confident that you’ve made it this far. Remind yourself where you were two months ago, or whatever time period works for you, and the progress you’ve made since then. NEVER STOP ASKING QUESTIONS. I’ve been working for 20 years and I’m not even kidding you — I still don’t know what’s going on and I’m still asking questions.
