4 Survival Tips In The Corporate World

At a point in life, we would need to head into the real world out there, get a job and jostle with many others to put the bacon on the table. It is nothing difficult – doing your job, fulfilling your tasks, function as a team player and so on, but there are many hidden obstacles that may make corporate life tough as hell. Let’s check out some handy survival tips here to make your working life as smooth-sailing as possible:

Ego

If you’re an expert in what you do, take pride in it. But don’t boast about it, or even put others down because their knowledge is not as extensive as yours. When you make your co-workers look bad (especially in front of the boss), or make fun of others, you’re burning bridges.

Similarly, respect those who teach you. If you don’t know, ask, and say thank you. Be humble. Learn to accept criticism too. Leave your ego at home.

Gossip

It is fine to chat with your co-workers now and then, and even hang out after work. However when you complain to one about another and vice versa, the whisperings can go even more ways than expected. This can be very detrimental to your work and reputation when it turns around and bites you back. Above all, don’t spread rumours!

Focus more on your tasks. Finish your reports. Fulfill your KPI. Attend your meetings. Upgrade your skills.

Problem-solving becomes a very important part of our makeup as we grow into maturity or move up the corporate ladder.
~ Zig Ziglar

Proactivity

“Don’t make your problem my problem.” – This was a common saying in the office where this writer worked before. Indeed, if you’re able to provide solutions to problems and resolve them, others will take note of your quick-thinking skills. Your boss will find you reliable!

To some, this is equivalent to boasting, but if you can get things done, why not? This does not necessary apply to problems. Proactively getting things done means you require less management – and you become a valued (indispensable) member of the team.

Work Smart

Work smart and not hard. Find efficient ways of completing your tasks. If you need to learn a new skill or technology, go ahead and do it.

In addition, master the art of time management. When you keep to your deadlines, your day is spent productively!
