Of­fice net­work tips

Los Angeles Times - - JOBS -

No one works in a vac­uum. You don’t have to be BFFs with ev­ery­body, but you should get to know your co­work­ers on more than a “Hey, how’s it go­ing?” level. De­vel­op­ing pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ships with your col­leagues can be as sim­ple as ask­ing ques­tions about their kids, hob­bies or plans for the week­end. Net­work­ing isn’t just some­thing you do out­side the of­fice; it can help you build trust and co­op­er­a­tion with the peo­ple who could help pro­pel you to the next level — and those who might be work­ing un­der­neath you when you get there. Take the time to learn your co­worker’s in­di­vid­ual work­ing styles so you can bet­ter un­der­stand team dy­nam­ics and know who to turn to in cer­tain sit­u­a­tions.
