Do excellent work; be pleasant to your co-workers; treat everyone with respect (whether they deserve it or not). And DON'T gossip.
I just do my job and Im friendly to my co workers. I don't have any game plan. Sorry you work at a company where you gotta kiss ***. That would bug me...<br />
Hey..I am the Boss and we have a blast...I tell my crew if you can't laugh and have fun at what you are doing then why do it...You would not even know I was Boss if you walked in I am just one of the gang...I love what I do....
let me know when you find out
LifeInWords said it all for me!!! in my work, you have the group that suck up the managers ***, and you have the group that just like to shut up, do their work and leave when the day is over!! these 2 groups hate each other and if you try to please both groups, then everyone goes asgainst you!!! so i just end up pleasing no one but myself and saying exactly what LifeInWords just said!!!
Its cliche but true<br />
You have to learn to play the game<br />
I recall one of my first evaluations. I was the highest producer in that office that first eyar. And for the most part the evaluation reflected it all,<br />
But my manager at the time had an issue with my non participation in the weekly meetings., I mean Iw as present, but not vocally participative in the effort. In my estimation they were pointless, and an absurd waste of time in which I could be doing something more productive. But they were a big deal to him. And ultimately they are the oens who determine your advancement.<br />
So yes, feign it if you must.
