1. Do not engage in office gossip. Ever.
If you encourage gossip on someone else, you will certainly have some gossip around you too.
2. Get to know your colleagues beyond work.
What drives them, what doesn’t.
Who they are, beyond their role and designation.
It will make working with them smoother.
3. Choose to deliver only A-quality work.
Your work is your signature.
So is a lack of good work.
