11 Simple Rules for Getting Along with Others at Work

Copyright © 2010 by Ty Howard.   All rights reserved.

With businesses becoming more and more diverse, it will be no surprise to see both friction and tension amongst employees. Put people of different races, genders, nationalities, backgrounds, opinions and preferences in the same environment−and conflict or misunderstanding will surely follow. Sometimes it’s the other person’s fault and sometimes it’s our own fault. I know I’ve had a few friction-filled moments at work, and each time I assessed how I could have handled the situation better.

With the many changes and challenges due to today's economy, I find it timely to provide you with my "11 Simple Rules for Getting Along With Others at Work."

I challenge you to read them and not find at least four or five areas that you can work on daily.

11 Simple Rules for Getting Along with Others at Work

1) Think first of the other person.

2) Accept the fact that people are different.

3) Allow people to start off with a fair shake.

4) Build up the other person’s sense of importance.

5) Respect the other person’s personal rights, space, and belongings (property).

6) Give sincere appreciation and support.

7) Eliminate negative thoughts and stereotypes.

9) Develop genuine interest in people.

10) Strive to build healthy and rewarding relationships.

11) Treat people the way you want to be treated!
