Transcript

  • 1. Not only is it a drag to work with someone who gripes about everything under the sun, but that pessimism can color your opinions, too. Negativity can be contagious. The best way to dissuade a downer? “Respond to the complaints with something nauseatingly positive.”
  • 2. When someone consistently gets credit for your work, it threatens your career success in a very real way. Good ideas are extremely valuable, both for your company and your own position. They showcase your creativity and intelligence, and if you’re not being recognized for what you bring to the table, you won’t be rewarded.
  • 3. Most bullies are like termites, slowly eating away at your confidence. Rather than screaming at you, they’ll pick on your vulnerabilities in a subtle way.
  • 4. Someone who doesn’t hold his or her own at work can cause serious issues. Lazy co-workers often act as if they’re doing you a favor just for showing up. Then, if you’re on the same team or project, you end up doing their work and resenting them for it. It’s unfair to you, plus the overall product ends up suffering.
  • 5. Gossip is like junk food—tempting to indulge in, but not good for you. The root of her slandering is usually insecurity; she puts other people down to feel powerful, since she lacks confidence in areas of her life.
  • 6. He has to be right, he dominates meetings, he always acts like he has the answer— even when he knows next to nothing about the topic. Not only is it frustrating to feel like you’re fighting for airtime, but because he’s pushy about broadcasting his opinions, they might get adopted over other, better plans.
  • 7. The AMCAT is India’s first employability assessment test that help fresh graduates to get their first job quickly and efficiently.
