If you are unhappy at work here are five specific changes you can make to the way you interact with the world around you.
1 Become politely rebellious. Don’t be troublesome and constantly disruptive but don’t be afraid to inject your thoughts with a few ‘What if we ....?’ and ‘Why don’t we ....?’ Make sure you contribute your ideas!
2 Become relentlessly positive. Look for the good and praise it, but if you have to challenge someone’s mistake do it privately and remember the difference between offering a critique and voicing a criticism.
3 Become prudently self critical. Keep a watchful eye on your own behaviour, the path you tread and the results you generate and if you are wrong or make a mistake don’t be afraid to admit it.
4 Become persistently interactive. Don’t waffle, don't try to socialise ad nauseam and don't monopolise conversations, but do build professional relationships with colleagues and peers whenever circumstances allow.
5 Become genuinely optimistic. Don’t expect things to go wrong, but be prepared in case they do. Put plans in place against the day when your world goes pear shaped: redundancies and takeovers do happen!
