One of the most important aspects of managing a successful team is making sure that there is open communication between all the team members and between them and management. Here are some tips for improving communication in the workplace.
A lot of people think that it isn't necessary to be genuine when you're in business. In fact, they might even think the opposite: that you're more likely to be successful when you're a little cunning or wily. We all see the effects of flattery, backbiting and scheming. It often seems like the way in which you present yourself is more important than the way you really are.
When we see successful people, we are blown away by how confident they are. They seem so casual when they appear on TV or when they're addressing a group of people. They seem to know what they're talking about when they write essays or answer questions in an interview. They carry themselves with ease.
