How Not to Lose Your Cool at the Office
How not to lose your cool at the office. Like many of us, you may work with or for someone you immensely dislike at some point in your career. You might think it would feel so great to unleash on them and let them know how you feel and how horrible they are - but remember the downside.
Here are my top three reasons why taking the high road will only benefit you in the end.
1. Most industries are very tight knit and people talk. You don’t want to be known for being unprofessional or as someone who flies off the handle easily.
2. You may need your former employer as a reference.
3. You want to protect your reputation. Think about what you could lose by letting your emotions get the best of you. Ask yourself if it’s worth it in the long run.
A way to avoid feeling frustrated and powerless is to regularly speak up for yourself and clear the air. And remember it’s business not personal.
