Do you feel demotivated because of some notorious colleagues who are looking for opportunities to put you down? In this post, Vishwas shares some insights on how to not let such negativity affect you.
Beware of people who play office politics!
One of the key things they do is never allow anyone to settle in by creating an environment of distrust and uncertainty. They spread false rumours about the management, clients and colleagues. Why do they do this? You may ask.
The answer is simple. Their attempt will always be to either push you out of the company or make you expendable. These are the people who will never leave the organisation, but they will fill venom in everyone’s mind so that they quit. Sadly, people never realize this. And they unknowingly ruin their careers.
I saw this happening in one of my previous organisations, multiple times. So, if anyone in the office is cribbing or ranting about things, don’t take it at face value. It could just be a ploy.
Be faithful to your company. Have an open dialogue with your colleagues and management before making any conclusions based on others’ opinions.
This is the only way to succeed in your workplace-by shunning the whinny manipulative noises around you.
