Listen to your boss always


Your boss is the route to your success and the route for you being fired. Your boss is the direct contact to your employer. Whatever you do in the office, is reported to your employer, through your boss. It is better to know your boss well and act accordingly. I would suggest you to know your boss in details, it will also help you in establishing your viewpoints in matters, if you share a good rapport with him/her.

Attend work regularly


Punctuality creates an impression. Reaching the office before your boss, coming regularly, and leaving the premises after your boss leaves is essential. Unnecessary breaks and holidays are never appreciated as such. If you attend to your boss whenever required, and do your job efficiently producing better outcomes, it automatically creates an unseen benefit.

Show your leadership skills


The world believes in dynamics. So keep changing your working ideals and habits. Look for better ways to improve in your field. Keep yourself updated. Be useful to the company and prove yourself to be worthy enough to be questioned. Always be flexible to new ideas. Be tech- friendly. In this way, you can create good impression among your colleagues and boss.

Avoid making enemies


If you really do not want to lose your job, never make enemies. Don’t be too loud and arrogant with your colleagues and don’t trust anyone too much. Stay away from office politics. Sometimes people can be jealous of your success and hence can back stab you. You may end up facing humiliating situations also.

Abide by the rule book



Office is your place of work, were the ambiance requires you to be professional. Idle gossips, pranks, being over friendly with colleagues and substance abuse should very much be avoided. Every office follows certain protocols, which the employees should be well aware. You should make yourself thorough with the rule book and never try to deviate from them. This would save you from landing up in serious problems.
