Success at Work


Managing Your BossTalk of managing one's boss sounds like controlling or directing the efforts of someone who is supposed to be managing us. But, we manage ourselves, our time, finances and careers, so managing can be framed as a facilitative, supportive or guiding activity. We can manage our bosses in much the same way we manage our customers: by getting close enough to them to understand their needs and by figuring out how we can help them.

Work Life BalanceWork life balance is a major challenge for people under pressure to do more. It's easy to ignore the need for better work life balance until stress levels lead to negative impacts on colleagues, friends, family, your health and your job performance. High stress levels means low tolerance for even the slightest irritation. This means having a short fuse and losing your temper too easily.

Improving Self AwarenessAre you as self-aware as you think? How well do you understand your strengths and development needs? It isn't as easy as it might seem.

Here are some typical anxiety generators: The unknown, change, uncertainty. Your boss, other colleagues. Work and time pressures. Fear of failure, being found incompetent.
