Success At Work7, Jan, 2014, by Seema Bhatnagar
Our work is the main source of joy and success in life. We spend major chunk of our time at work. Unfortunately, for some, it becomes a main source of pain and sorrow in life while for some fortunate ones it works as a main driver of joy and success. As per a study conducted by American Psychological Association, 69% of employees report that work is a significant source of stress and 41% say they typically feel tense or stressed out during the workday. This is indeed alarming because a stressed out individual cannot enjoy life fully.
Work is surely a challenge, because people of different background, skills and temperament come together under a same roof. In such a scenario, frictions, resistance, conflicts, ego clashes are normal, what is important is how we handle them to experience that underlying success and joy.
Personally, I receive many emails from people about issues and challenges faced at work. It doesn't really feel nice, looking at the amount of personal dissatisfaction and constant frustration faced by people at work. Unhappy employees can never bring success to organization and they lead an unhappy life.
Through this series I have tried to present some tips and guidelines to facilitate people in achieving success at work. Topics covered here, are normal scenarios, challenges faced by people at work. Tips shared under each topic are concise and crisp, that can profoundly impact your experiences and responses at work. These tips are based on my own long experience of working in corporate sector.
