KNOW WHO IS IN THE ROOM: HOW WORKPLACE ETIQUETTE AIDS IN YOUR SUCCESS

Two Persons Hand Shake

“Watch what you say or do.”


know the room

So many of us when we are working don’t understand the environment in which we work. We converse and interact without really knowing the people that are in our immediate surroundings. And this is becoming more and more evident the more time progress. In the years past, you knew who the boss was in the building. You knew the name of “Mr. Big,” sometimes they would call him. Now, Mr. Big could be in a sweater and jeans with sneakers and unshaven. You just have to be aware that this person could be in a bathroom stall next you, our at a vending machine. Places where so many improper conversations take place. You should and have to really mind your manners.

stop looking for the boss

Instead of trying to figure out who is the boss so you can learn to curb your persona, just be that person. Because of you are just putting on for the boss, then other people will see that and word will get around the office. People will talk and eventually the boss will see that you are not one of these genuine people you make yourself out to become. And that will hurt you more than if you were to just come outright and say what you’re about. Faking it will only make the boss like you less once they do meet you. And depending on the boss, they might actually approach you about your behavior.

learn from others mistakes

The people who used to be there and got the boot names will surface. And when they do, you will hear why they got fired. This should be enough to get you to change your ways if you are a similar person. The way these people are talked about, you would think they were individuals you knew personally. So be mindful of the people who used to be you and it didn’t work out for on the job.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography since 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my filmmaking.
