Self Confidence is Empowering. As you navigate your career path, consider how you can assert yourself more and earn the respect of your colleagues. The goal is to be more emphatic and self-assured, but not aggressive. Your new persona of respect will be palpable to others and perhaps cause a positive ripple effect in your organization. Don’t ever compromise and sell out on this most precious commodity because you deserve to be respected.
A bonus to being respected at work is that many people will also enjoy being around you and that’s a good thing. You will continue to foster professional relationships at work but keep the “liking” to Facebook.
