I WORK WITH A GOOD FRIEND AND THERE’S AN OPEN­ING FOR A PRO­MO­TION. HOW DO WE DEAL WITH THE FRIENDLY COM­PE­TI­TION?

Women's Health (South Africa) - - ASK US ANYTHING -

AN­SWER

Pre­serv­ing longterm re­la­tion­ships is just as im­por­tant as jump­ing on new op­por­tu­ni­ties. The bad news here is that some­one’s feel­ings may get hurt. The up­side: you and your pal prob­a­bly al­ready com­mu­ni­cate well. Speak openly about the fact that you’re both ap­ply­ing, agree to put your best bids for­ward and let the chips fall where they may. Re­mem­ber that com­pa­nies are al­ways evolv­ing and po­si­tions are al­ways chang­ing. Trust the out­come what­ever it may be and be happy for your friend if she gets the promo. Be­ing ma­ture and think­ing big­pic­ture will po­si­tion you well for the next op­por­tu­nity. And if you get it, don’t gloat.
