You know better than to discuss politics or make a racist comment in your workplace. These are the obvious things you should not say in your workplace. But do you know that there are other less offensive things you could say that could land you in trouble?
In this article, we are going to be looking at some things you should never say to your college.
“This is boring”
We understand that most of the meeting you attend might seem like a complete waste of time or even unnecessary. But you should never say it out loud or even whisper it to your colleagues. If you do this you boss is not going to consider you as a team player. And this is because you find what he is saying to be boring. If you continue on this path you may lose your job.
Saying “you look nice” only to your female colleagues
It is wise not to comment on the weight or the appearance of your colleagues. Anything you will not be comfortable saying to a man, you shouldn’t be said to a woman. Before complementing your workmate, ensure that you think things through and anticipate the effect it is going to have on them. It is important that you have it at the back of your mind that a simple compliment can easily get out of hand and cause serious damage.
Sharing too many details about your weekend with your boss and colleges
If your boss happens to ask you what you did during your weekend, what will you say? Sharing the details of everything you did is certainly not a good idea. If you are not entirely sure what you should say, you need to remember that saying less is more. And don’t forget to thank him for asking how your weekend went.
It is not my fault
If your boss criticizes a projected you contributed to, not taking responsibility for it certainly not the way to go. Blaming your college or attacking other people will make you sound childish. It also shows your boss that you are not listing to what he is saying.
These are just a few of the things you should not say in your workplace. If you apply the tips in this article, you are going to have a better relationship with your colleges.
