“One of the core elements of a toxic workplace is lack of trust between co-workers and supervisors across the organization.”
–Paul White, Ph.D, Psychologist, Author
Are you trusted at your job? Do people believe they can rely on your integrity, strength, and ability? If not, your working relationships are likely suffering, and so are you.
Improve your work life by demonstrating:
- Competence: Hone your skills until you are an expert at your job and do the best quality work you can.
- Character: Tell the truth, don’t gossip or backbite, and do what you say you are going to do.
- Consistency: Handle your areas of responsibility completely, on time, every day.
As you become known for these characteristics, people will trust you more, treat you better, and may even be inspired by the example you set.
