Avoid discussing these things with your co-worker – In an office environment; the co-workers are what make the work-life a little more interesting.
And talking about the friendship with co-workers; it is something that is unpredictable. Yes, because sometimes there’s no guarantee about how it will turn out to be at the end of the day.
Wondering, why I said so? Well, it’s actually based off on the conversation level. In a workplace; the things you share with your co-workers matters the most even though you think it’s OK.
Well, you must be not having a bad intention when you talk about certain things but what if it backfires you.
Check ‘em out and avoid discussing these things with your co-worker.:-
- How much are you getting paid?
Yes, strictly the salary talk is a big NO-NO. What if you are getting paid double as compared to your co-worker & “what if he gets unhappy listening about your payment”? Do you get it? A little talk can result into making a big difference in a relationship.
- Bitching a lot about others
No matter; what goes around definitely comes around. In a workplace; the person you are gossiping about is actually aware that he/she must be a topic of your talk.
And thus; from here the rivalry starts & that co-worker tries to pull you down each & every time.
- Personal life
When you are often chilling with your co-workers & just talking about each-others life; don’t reveal too much about your personal life. For e.g. personal relationship etc is something you need to avoid totally.
- The big blunders you made in your work
Time changes & the relationship with your co-workers also take a change.
Only because you are friendly with your colleague; avoid mentioning the blunders you once made in your work. It is all because you might never know when the exact friendly “co-worker” will spill the bean in front of others.
- How un-cool the office is
Many people mostly complain about the environment in office about how un-cool it is as compared to others. Well, stop complaining about it because no one is forcing you to be there & it is your own choice you’ve made.
So you have to avoid discussing these things with your co-worker. Such things are often reached out to your superior person & it can thus affect your career.
