Are you taking work interactions personally?

We want to feel valued for our contributions at work. Right?

When you present an idea at work are you expecting a certain reaction? Is that reaction to make you feel personally good or is it that reaction to support the "mission" that is needed to accomplish a task/project a work? This is an important question to ask yourself.

In order to have a thriving career, take the personal out of the equation. Personal feelings are about yourself. Did your employer hire you to think about your personal feelings when accomplishing a task? Probably not! They hired you because they thought you were a good fit for the role and that you would be an asset to the team mission.

When formulating ideas for a work task/project, always keep the corporate mission/vision statement at the forefront of your thoughts. If you accomplish the task with this in mind, guess what? The personal side takes care of yourself. When you work as a team player, you will get noticed. It may take time. Keep working away at being a team player and I bet that your ideas will start to be noticed. If you want to accelerate being noticed sooner, brainstorm with yourself or a close confident of way to make the presentation of your idea memorable.

I urge you to do yourself a favour and not take work interactions personally. If someone disagrees with you, keep you body language in check and ask objectively why. The next skill is to be objective when listening and hearing what they have to say.

I hope you have an amazing day! Stay objective!!
