FIRST AND FOREMOST OFFICE POLITICS KEEP IT ON THE DOWN LOW
The most important thing to remember is that your office is a working environment. So it’s crucial to keep it practical and useful. Don’t get too personal. Save that for home!
Steer clear of “important,” bigticket items that are too pricey. You’re the boss; don’t be too extravagant!
People feel happy in pleasing spaces, so have fun accessorizing with brightly colored throw pillows and lamps.
