Twelve good workplace habits no matter what your position….

by Rod Smith

1. Don’t take sides when faced with a conflict that does not involve you.
2. Don’t gossip or pass on information that is none of your business.
3. Don’t use the Internet for personal reasons while you are at work.
4. Don’t talk out of both sides of your mouth.
5. Ask for clarity (instructions, guidelines) when you face new tasks.
6. Ask for feedback regarding how you are performing and for constructive criticism.
7. Ask about company culture if you are not sure what’s appropriate in any setting.
8. Ask about the history of the company and what are its long-term aspirations.
9. Return calls.
10. Leave succinct and accurate messages.
11. Say “thank you” more than you say anything else.
12. Solve problems, not people.
