Challenge Myself: Day #206 Find a Workplace Ally

Today is Day #206 of the Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my daily Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today says to find one person to be your workplace ally or confidante.

The book says,

If there is somone in the company or on your job site that you can trust and shares your level of integrity and ethics, aligning with him or her could benefit your professional goals, especially if that person is a supervisor or further aling the career ladder than you are.

Having someone as a workplace ally means you don't have to feel alone as you navigate through office politics, solve problems, or deal with difficult coworkers.

A workplace ally can serve as your sounding board for new ideas, cheer you on when you day is filled with special challenges, and give you a pep talk to lift your heart and hopes when you need it. Cherish him and nurture that friendship.

I just started at my job. I wish when we were given new tasks that they just didn't assume you know everything about the task given. Like a foobar yesterday. Don't let someone pick an entire sheet and then tell them, oh you should have separated all of that by barcodes.

Just For Today: We all need a workplace ally and friend.

From the book: Live Happy
