Survivor's Skills in the Workplace
I just reviewed some survival training material from the Navy. It sparked several thoughts on what we might put on a small card if we wanted to give new employees survival tips for the workplace. A few nominees:
- Know when to keep your mouth shut.
- Maintain basic competence.
- Show up on time.
- Don't fight with your co-workers.
- Be reliable.
- Take initiative.
- Give a damn about the job.
- Be nice.
- Don't embarrass anyone.
- Help others.
