Workplace is the area where people spend most of the time in working. Most of them may have to face new challenges in their work, some may take up the challenges easily but some will have a fear to take up new challenges because they feel that they might commit some mistakes. If you are the only person in the office to face the challenge then it becomes a bit difficult to take up that challenge. But if there is a strong team to support you, then you will feel that you can easily face the challenge. Therefore if one maintains good relations at the work place, they will get good support and this will in turn help them to perform well at the workplace. To maintain good relations, one should have good interpersonal skills. Unfortunately many people do not possess these skills and they fail to maintain good relations at the work place. Here are some suggestions on how to maintain good workplace relations:
• Communicate effectively: Having effective communication with everyone in the office will make you feel comfortable and you will not feel demoralized by others. Make your colleagues know who you are. For this you have to share at meetings, speak with all your colleagues and share your knowledge and proficiency during the meeting so that your colleagues will know what your capabilities are. Try to open up a little and be friendly with all your colleagues. This will help to build good relationship at work place.
