You Will Need
- Positive attitude
- Easygoing manner
Greet people, smile, and cultivate a persuasive manner and tone in relationships with coworkers. Even if you dislike someone, your good behavior reduces tension.
Go along with innocent comments or humor and don't be overly sensitive. Give people room if you sense that your habits annoy them.
Forgive and consider others
Forgive instead of harboring grudges. Remember that most people are doing the best they can. Discuss things and listen sensitively to find areas of agreement.
Admit when you're wrong, take criticism, and show appreciation for the effort others make to reach out.
Lend a hand
Lend a hand or an ear in all situations, establishing yourself as the "go-to" person. Don't speak until you're sure what you say is true, kind, and necessary.
Cooperate and joke
Use humor to cooperate or lighten the mood. Try to understand and respect others, and enjoy getting along with those around you.
