Six Typical Mistakes Women Make at Work

to develop their skills and demonstrate their talents will turn their

job into a career.


As a rule, all that we get from life is what we asked for. Demands should

be clearly and exactly defined. You should declare your wishes and the

efforts that you are ready make to realize them. Successful people are

those who state their ideas clearly, express their wishes, and lay down

demands. Thus, they show that they want to do difficult and non-typical


Mistake #6


Many women who have the chance to rise in their career feel so tied and

obligated to their company or boss that they have no courage to change

anything. They are thankful for being well treated. Emotional affection

is a good ground for manipulations. Your opponent can make you focus on

an emotionally strong but inessential point. Emotionality and capacity

for logical thinking are not opposite character traits, but when we see

an excited person, we immediately come to the conclusion that he cannot

think logically. Value your feelings, but sometimes it is better to hide

them. Very often we take to heart common things. We misunderstand actions

and words and interpret what was said by our interlocutors rather than

ask him about it directly. It opens us up to injury on the way toward

success. Bosses hint at something unpleasant, and we immediately begin

to imagine horrible pictures in our mind, make hasty conclusions, and

feel upset for no reason.


Absence of emotional passions helps you to consider the situation calmly

and coolly and to do your work much better. Try to cut down on private

talks in the presence of your colleagues and boss. Bear in mind that attacks

and criticism are not necessarily aimed at offending you personally. Learn

to react to criticism positively, and use it as a step for further development.

After all, if your mistake was not pointed out, you would not have had

the chance to correct it. Your response should be: "It is good that you

noticed it, I will certainly correct this point in my report". React to

facts, not to emotional implications of criticism.
