How to get on better with your colleagues
In life, it is a simple fact that you are just not going to get on with everyone. All people are different and have wildly different personalities, which makes it that much more difficult for people to get along in larger groups. It is not a bad thing, life would be very boring if everyone got along all of the time, but in work it is important that people get along as much as they can, even if they disagree.
There is simply not time to have arguments when you are at work, and you will often need to reach a resolution to a problem very quickly. Here are some ways to get along better with colleagues, even if you have very different personalities.
- Be friendly. Even if you are having a bad day, remember that this is not your colleagues’ fault. You shouldn’t take your moods out on your colleagues because they are trapped at work just as you are, and you should be trying to make the day more enjoyable for each other.
- Do things for them. If a colleague asks you to do something to help them, do it and do it as quickly as you can so that they get what they need when they need it. If you can see that they need help but they haven’t asked yet, you should still make the effort to help while you can.
- Talk to them. Don’t sit in silence all day with headphones in. Even the most introverted person should have something to say to the people that they sit in close contact with all day every day. If you refuse to reveal any details of your life, your likes and dislikes then they may start to distrust you.
