Gaining Office Respect is Key to Your Career

detailsfeature3h.jpgDetails Magazine’s November 2006 issue features a ‘guide to getting instant respect at the office.’ This article discusses why and how to be a boss and not a buddy with co-workers. Getting to friendly with team members can often lead to a lack of respect.  Remember it’s ‘Show Business’ not ‘Show Friends’. Here is a 10 Step ‘Power Playbook’ (to gain respect at the office) that is outlined in the article: 

The Power Playbook

1. Get mad as hell
2. Stay just out of reach
3. Have the final say
4. Freeze out the new kids
5. Hold a steady gaze
6. Forget details
7. Remain hard to please
8. Don’t keep pets
9. Fit your britches
10. Be cryptic

You’re the Boss, Not a Buddy. [Details – Karl Taro Greenfield]
