I have been thinking about some things that I have been studying for work and in my personal life. It's about how we live today. How we treat each other as fellow human beings. At work, our entire department has read The Fred Factor. Honestly, I'm a people-pleaser and a natural-born Fred. I am also very competitive. That in itself can bring out some not-so-Fred traits. So where's the balance? I have been working on going the extra mile without expecting anything in return. Working with friends and co-workers to make our lives and jobs better than ever. I have been amazed to watch my team come alive with this thought process. Think along this line: Is there anything else I can do for you?
I have always tried to keep clear of office gossip and drama. I also believe it is important that I keep my opinion to myself. I am supportive when needed and constantly holding on to the right attitude. Most often in my experiences, unless you are asked for your opinion, it is best to keep your mouth shut. How someone takes on a specific task is how THEY do it. If they wanted YOU to do it, then they would have asked you to do it. It's all about behavior and how we treat others. It is important in the public world to always be on your best behavior and use your manners. When you put your "idea of right" out there, it is just that...your idea/opinion/belief. The world goes round because we are all different. The important thing to remember is your right is just that....your belief of the right way. Be open and willing to hear other ideas. Don't judge someone else's idea just because it is not your own.
Here are a few things I found to be Pinteresting on the subject:
