You may think that everybody is so interested in every little detail of your personal life but that’ not true, sorry. Your weekend party selfies and detailed dating antics may seem harmless and fascinating … to you. But too much sharing of details and events may give people the impression you are narcissistic and overly in need of attention.

Complaining

Listening all day long about the things you don’t like or about how tired you are it’s so annoying to everyone else. It’s good to have an office environment where expressing your dissatisfaction is welcome and encouraged. But some people complain about nearly everything without sincere justification.

Some people think a little white lie is acceptable. Everyone exaggerates their resume, right? Wrong! There are many people who actually believe any lying is unacceptable behavior. The same goes for taking things that aren’t yours be they supplies or office trinkets.

Slacking

Workdays are hard enough without having to pick up the extra slack for those who don’t carry their fair share of the load. People on the team know who is not pulling their weight.

No one has time for tantrums and excuses. Life can be a challenge for everyone at one time or another. Having a problem or mild expression of emotion won’t hurt you the first time, but if a pattern develops, people will avoid you like the plague.

Gossiping

People may enjoy hearing you dish salaciously about what’s going on with Susie’s promotion or Bill’s marriage, but at the same time they are judging you.

Dressing too casual

It’s great that many offices don’t require suit and tie anymore, but sweatpants and pajamas takes things a little far even for casual Friday. It’s always better to dress at least one level better than is required. You will feel more professional and people will admire you for your fashion sense.

Blaming others

People appreciate and respect others who can take responsibility for their own actions and experience. Throwing others under the bus makes you look irresponsible and petty. Leadership opportunities go to those who are accountable and can elevate others rather than tearing them down.
