Throughout our lives, we are constantly learning and growing. Especially after entering the workplace, we face more complex interpersonal relationships and more complicated things. There are often sudden and difficult situations that require you to respond flexibly and find them. Smart solution. Anyone can change from a "workplace novice" to a "workplace veteran". No one can understand the rules of survival in the workplace without experiencing anything, and then be able to swim in the workplace with ease. After work, we seem to have been smoothed out and become more mature, which is actually due to the increase in experience. The longer we work, the more we understand some workplace truths, which things in the workplace should be taken seriously, and which ones should be handled in a casual manner. The knowledge here needs to be learned with humility.

In the workplace, there is a degree of advance and retreat, don't cross the line

The grasp of the "degree" of being a person and doing things requires careful consideration, and you must not step over the boundary. Once you touch the interests of others, others will turn against you in light, or plot against you behind your back. At that time, you will cry without tears.

Survival in the workplace is like walking a tightrope. You need to be extremely cautious and have a peaceful mind in order to walk steadily and finally walk out a road to success.

In the workplace, in the face of some things that you do not know very well and have absolutely no confidence in, you must not express your opinions at will and "get ahead".

Because a lot of times, disasters come out of the mouth. The speaker is unintentional but the listener is intentional. The person who called you brother one second before may betray you the next second, who knows? People are unpredictable.

In the workplace, it is necessary to maintain an appropriate distance with anyone. It is best to be close to each other, to advance and retreat, and to defend, so as to put yourself in a favorable position.

If you have more than enough respect for your superiors, you should also learn to do what you like, find out their temperament, not "step on thunder", win trust, and make work easier.

If you are facing the next, you will mingle with him, integrate into the circle, find common topics, help if you can, move forward together, learn to share, win the hearts of the people, and make the road to promotion smoother.

The workplace is a place where interests are exchanged, not about feelings

There is no doubt that the workplace is utilitarian. Isn’t everyone in the workplace busy all day for promotion and salary increase, and to realize wealth freedom as soon as possible?

In the workplace, please put away your naivety, and only "sophisticated" can be more popular.

Innocence is the least valuable thing in the workplace. Your innocence will eventually kill you, make you lose opportunities, and become farther and farther away from success.

To give an example, Xiao Li, who works with me, is a serious and responsible person, but he only knows how to work hard and never attend company meetings.

His life creed is not to fix those falsehoods, and hard work can bring success. He is naive about many things. For example, he believes that doing things silently does not need to deliberately ask for credit. Leaders can always see themselves and promote and appoint them.

For another example, someone who understands who you are will naturally understand, you don’t have to explain, and you don’t have to aggrieve yourself to deal with those tired and boring social interactions. It doesn’t matter what your colleagues think of you. What matters is that you know what kind of person you are. enough.

It was these naive ideas that made him fail in the selection of managerial talents again and again. He thought that if he worked hard and worked hard, he could achieve success. However, he didn't know that it was not enough to have the ability to work in time. It is more important to know how to get along with leaders and colleagues, and to have trust and people's hearts.

The workplace must learn to seek big from small and achieve yourself

In the workplace, it is useless to be a "bad guy".

If anyone comes to you for help, you will be warm-hearted, and you will sincerely agree to things that are not within your scope of work. In exchange, it may not be the joy of others, and may even encourage others to be "delicious and lazy."

If you don't do well or reject him, others will feel a huge gap, feel that you have become arrogant, and forget that you have no obligation to do this for him in the first place. What's the point of being resentful and blamed?

In the workplace, "seeking big with small", preserving and achieving oneself is great wisdom, and it is the direction we should strive for.

In the final analysis, the workplace is a human society. If you want to do well in the workplace, you must learn to observe and listen more, learn to deal with interpersonal relationships smoothly, and use different ways to deal with different people. Set in stone.
