Unhappy at work? Change your behaviour!

 Show Interest
If you are unhappy at work here a five specific changes you can make to the way you respond (note well: ‘respond’ not ‘react’) to the world around you. 

1 Become politely rebellious. Don’t be troublesome and constantly disruptive but don’t be afraid to inject your thoughts with a few ‘What if we ...?’ ‘Why don’t we ...?’ Make sure you contribute your ideas! 

2 Become relentlessly positive. Look for the good and praise it, but if you have to challenge someone’s mistake do it privately and remember the difference between offering a critique and voicing a criticism. 

3 Become prudently self critical. Keep a watchful eye on your own behaviour, the path you tread and the results you generate and if you are wrong or make a mistake don’t be afraid to admit it. 

4 Become persistently interactive. Don’t waffle, don't socialise ad nauseam and don't monopolise conversations, but do build professional relationships with colleagues and peers whenever circumstances allow. 

5 Become genuinely optimistic. Don’t expect things to go wrong, but make sure you are prepared when they do. Be prepared just in case your world goes pear shaped: redundancy does happen!
