With your boss’s peers:

Micetalk - - EXPERT -

If you en­joy a good re­la­tion­ship with your boss, re­quest him to in­tro­duce you to his peers. Tread care­fully, as these could be his ri­vals!

Step out­side your com­fort zone by in­ter­act­ing with col­leagues from other de­part­ments. To be viewed as a team player, it’s im­por­tant to be liked by your col­leagues. A few ideas you can build on: 1. Send con­grat­u­la­tory emails when oth­ers get

pro­moted. 2. Sign-up for cross-func­tional projects and open

day train­ing pro­grams 3. Start an in­ter­nal lunch fo­rum, or news­let­ter/

in­tranet, invit­ing con­tri­bu­tions from oth­ers 4. As­sist with or­gan­is­ing events for ex­am­ple of­fice par­ties, Fri­day drinks, CSR ini­tia­tives, con­fer­ences and cul­tural events Net­work­ing is all about build­ing re­la­tion­ships; it’s a ‘give and take’ process that re­quires time and ef­fort to keep it go­ing but reaps huge div­i­dends. •
