In an era of Casual Fridays and work-from-home colleagues, how can you maintain effective office communication in a changing business climate?
We’ll steer you through changes in business etiquette, and help you successfully navigate through the new realities of workplace conflict and office politics.
You’re full of fresh ideas. But all your outside-the-box thinking goes for naught because you’re surrounded by bosses and colleagues who play it safe.
If you’ve made it this far in your career in a low-tech role, count yourself lucky. The fastest route to the top in the years ahead may be through the New Economy.
Here’s an easy way to decide whether to take a new job: Apply the BIG test.
If your employer’s layoffs and reorganizations leave you balancing two or even three jobs, don’t just grin and bear it. Tell your boss you’ll give everything you’ve got for the good of the team.
If you tend to get lost in thought or run late, set an alarm clock or calendar software alarm to ring five minutes before you need to leave.
Replace “What you need to understand is ...” with “Here’s my opinion.”
Get in the habit of telling employees, “Here’s what I admire about your performance.”
As the team leader, you want to guide the group to produce superior results.
