Chapter 6. Office relationships > Positive co-worker relationships

Positive co-worker relationships

The fundamental element for developing positive co-worker relationships is respect. By showing your co-workers that you respect them, you will encourage reciprocal attitudes and improve the climate of your workplace.

A key action that can help you display respect for your co-workers is to maintain a positive attitude. Your attitude greatly affects how you respond to various situations in the workplace, including stressful ones. One action you can take to help you maintain a positive attitude is to focus on the strength of your co-workers instead of their shortcomings. Your co-workers are probably just as busy and as stressed as you are. When you demonstrate a genuine interest in their contributions and concerns rather than focusing solely on your own, you’ll find that people respond positively to you as a person and as a professional.
