To be a social and loved one in the office, to create a good network is just as important in our business relations as in social life. The people we see at work every day, talk by phone, send and receive e-mails are creating this network.
How can we be someone who is loved, effective and able to connect while building this network?
People in the workplace are part of our social network. Sympathetic, antipathic, beautiful, ugly, indecisive, prejudiced, despotic, emotional… No matter which of them, these people are important parts of your social network and at the end of the day they are the people you can define by saying “environment“.
These relations we have established at the workplace both reflect on the quality of our work and lead us to be an effective employee and lead to the development of our leadership skills.
People with effective networks are more charismatic and who are involved in quality projects throughout their careers, who fold their successes day by day, earn more than their colleagues financially, and above all often become more popular.
According to Michelle Tillis Lederman’s famous book “The 11 Laws of Likability”, we need to see networking as a work of connecting with others. It is very important to communicate with our colleagues in a variety of settings in the workplace, and to create a bond without focusing too much on what we can (or can) do.
Leaderman stresses the importance of trying to look at and sympathize with people rather than false smiles.
What can we do to increase your appreciation in our workplace?
