Practice Professional Courage

If you are like most people, you don’t like conflict. You’ve never been trained in how to participate in meaningful conflict, so you likely think of conflict as scary, harmful, and hurtful. Conflict can be negative, but if it’s done well, conflict can also help you accomplish your work mission and your personal vision.

Conflict can help you serve customers and create successful products. Happy people accomplish their purpose for working. Why let too little professional courage keep you from achieving your goals and dreams? Make well -done conflict your friend.


If All Else Fails, Job Searching Will Make You Smile

If all of these ideas aren’t making you happy at work, it’s time to reevaluate your employer, your job, or your entire career. You don’t want to spend your life doing work you hate in an unfriendly work environment.

Most work environments don’t change all that much. But unhappy employees tend to grow even more disgruntled. You can secretly smile while you spend all of your non-work time searching for a job. It will only be a matter of time until you can quit your job. It’s okay to pick your happiness and even safety when things have gone too far, and if you do not have the power to change them.
