6 Ways that you can make a better transition into the work place.
Don't you just love the start of a new job? Its almost like the first day of school. You get to meet new people, show off your skills, plus wear some new outfits!
For the first month or so, you are filled with much excitement and ready to take on your new position full force. You are busy learning everyone's names, getting to know where everything is, and your boss has said three times that -"I am so glad to have you with the company." You are making friends and everyone is on their best behavior, helpful and treating you well.
But then somewhere around the second or third month as everyone gets comfortable with you, -and you with them ...the reality of it all - sets in! Your coworkers and managers start to show the true colors and questionable personalities that they have been hiding until now... (miserable, condescending and clearly hating their job or maybe their life existence, (who knows what their problem is!) You start to fully hear the gripe that everyone has with the company and the immense discord that has been going on well before you got there!
The novelty of a new work place has worn in and your eyes are wide open! You can see clearly how the many personalities in one small place can badly mesh together. You start to wonder if you made the right decision to work there.
I consider myself to be an easygoing, fun, friendly person. I can tell silly off color jokes and I get a kick out of hearing them as well! I am quite easy to get along with, ...not to mention a team player. I very rarely use condescending tones in my voice to others, so I sure as hell don't appreciate negative tones coming to me!
So if you are like me - and what I described above has hit the nail on the head, what do you do now? How do you attain balance before you want to move on to greener pasture-(which may not exist).
Here is a list of ways you can make a better transition in your new workplace...
Not everyone in your new workplace is bad, you just need to take your time to get to know them. They have been there long before you and have already have made a bond with each other. They know the ins and outs of the company, plus, they know all of the juicy gossip stories from years passed. Give yourself some time to catch up, and not before too long, you will be all caught up with the company scoop. Knowing who you can trust, who the bosses pets are, and who you can kid around with.
And lastly, consider it a good thing when your new coworkers are feeling comfortable enough with you to show their true sides. It means that they are now accepting you, and they feel that you already blend in. ttyl
