6. Exhibit Respect And Kindness
Take courtesy the extra mile. If you think the other person is pressed for time, be brief. If you think something might be wrong, ask if there is anything you can do to help (but don’t be pushy). Never share observations that might be insulting and never hesitate to share a compliment.
7. Speak Up And Make Yourself Understood
If you don’t say what’s on your mind, you’ll have no chance of connecting with people, getting them to share your interests, influencing their thoughts, or persuading them to do things your way. Of course, sometimes it helps to take a quiet moment and clarify, for yourself, what really is on your mind. If it’s something that ought to be shared, take an extra moment to think about the most effective words and actions to get your message across.
8. Be A Motivator
Visualize positive results. Be enthusiastic and share your positive vision. Never speak of a problem unless you have thought of at least one potential solution.
9. Celebrate The Success Of Others At Workplace
Always give people credit for their achievements, no matter how small. And go out of your way to catch people doing things right.
