It’s easy to forget, but everyone around you is a human being.
Your annoying boss. Your company’s demanding customers. Your lazy co-workers. The CEO you’ve never met.
In today’s busy office, it’s easy to get annoyed, be short tempered, and think poorly of the people around you.
But it would be better to remember that all of these people are human beings. They have their own worries, fears, dream, hopes, and goals. Sometimes all it takes is a smile, a kind word, or a minute of your day to make them feel better.
If you treat these people well and understand what they want, they will enjoy working with you and they will reciprocate. Overtime, your office will be a friendlier and more collegiate environment.
Treating each person like a human being might be the most rewarding part of your climb up the ladder.
