Tips for Office Workers

I love this article by Steve Tobak entitled, “10 Things You Should Never Do At Work“. Take his advice, it will pay dividends in the long run.

My short tips off the top of my head:

  • Resist urges to gossip
  • Take the high road
  • Don’t be petty
  • Remember that everyone is on the same team, but just might have a different approach to addressing a problem
  • Sometimes you have to sell to convince, don’t underestimate this necessity
  • Recycle (shows that you care and aren’t lazy)
  • Wash your hands every time you use the bathroom (demonstrates good hygiene)
  • Lead by example
  • Don’t ask to borrow money from someone
  • Share candy and snacks (demonstrates generosity)
  • Be so ethical they could study you in law school… that means if you think an expense is questionable, don’t expense it
  • Do small favors, they will go a long way
