Everyone knows, or everyone should know, that it’s important to build a relationship with the people above you at work. Building a relationship where both parties are mutually respected will help you to succeed in the company. Relationship building is a huge necessity when you want to be able to move forward. If you can’t build a relationship with the people above you or your peers, then you won’t be able to move forward. How many times have we been in positions where we have a terrible relationship with coworkers? This is definitely a huge frustration for so many people.
Don’t be an Eddy Haskell
It’s always a great thing to be on good terms with the people above you (aka the upline). But, that should go without saying to not be like Eddy Haskell from Leave it to Beaver. Don’t brown-nose your way into getting them to like you. Don’t be a suck-up! You don’t want them to roll their eyes whenever you leave the room due to your consistent sucking up. Yes, it is and can be very intimidating trying to strike up a relationship with the upline, but it’s pertinent that you do so. You want the people above you to actually like you and to want to help you whenever you run into problems. You want and need their support. But, if you can’t create this kind of relationship and earn the support from the upline, then you’re going to run into issues.
Support from the Upline
It is important that you gain this support. Having their support can help you to jump over any minor or major problems that you run into. You want to be able to be comfortable asking for their help. If they’re supportive of you it should show that they want you to succeed just like they have. If someone makes it very obvious that they don’t want you to succeed, then it might be a good idea to steer clear of their help. Having support from someone can create a huge difference in how you work. Knowing that someone wants you to succeed makes you want to succeed even more. Build relationships throughout your industry. Lend your support to your coworkers and gain support from your upline, because then the whole industry will be able to succeed.
That’s all for today’s tips. Be sure to remember, that if you are able to gain the support from the people above you, then your job can become a whole lot easier! Having consistent and solid support can really make any job so much better! If you got some insight or know someone that will, please like, comment, or share this post!
