How Happy Are YOU At Work?

One ofrepparttar main reasons so many people are unhappy at work is because they are experiencing one or more ofrepparttar 131395 three types of conflict mentioned above.

Here are some suggestions to help you resolve these behavioral conflicts.

When you find yourself being mentally "pulled", ask yourself this: "How do I need to behave in order forrepparttar 131396 project that I am CURRENTLY working on to be successful?" Do you need to "have it done yesterday" or is precision and attention to detail more important? Whichever is more important, let yourself be "pulled" in that direction. Acknowledging this internal dialogue and making a conscious decision how to behave will help reducerepparttar 131397 conflict. When interacting with someone who does things differently than you, first realize that this person probably does not intend to give you a hard time. Their behaviors stem from their preferred behavioral style. Just as you have your way of doing things, so do they. The goal is for both of you to discuss how you each prefer to approach your work and reach some type of compromise. When projects are assigned to you that do not match your behavioral design, you have several options. You can enlistrepparttar 131398 help of people whose natural behavior matchesrepparttar 131399 demands ofrepparttar 131400 project. You can also speak with your manager/supervisor aboutrepparttar 131401 type of tasks that energize you and request that inrepparttar 131402 future, those tasks be assigned to you. The most drastic measure (and sometimesrepparttar 131403 most appropriate) is to remove yourself fromrepparttar 131404 environment -- yes, quit! If you are a person who does not likerepparttar 131405 spotlight and prefers to work behindrepparttar 131406 scenes and your position constantly requires you to make presentations and public appearances, you will continuously be unhappy. The single most important factor related to job satisfaction is having a job that closely matches your behavioral design.
