Even if you think that you work extremely hard and that most times, you really do a good job, there still are a few work habits that annoy your boss and could get you fired.
These don’t necessarily make you a bad person, since everyone makes mistakes and we all have certain things we can improve about ourselves. Each employee is first and foremost a person with likes, dislikes, and a unique combination of personality traits — but as an employee they can reflect poorly upon you, and even cost you your job. Here are seven most toxic work habits that could leave you without a job. Pay attention to them and don’t let them jeopardize your work and your career:
Chronic complaining, justified or not, in the workplace leads to no good. In fact, in can be downright toxic and can make a department or even a whole company a terrible place to work. The more you complain, the easier it gets. In the end, everything is bad, every situation is a problem, every co-worker is a jerk and nothing is good.
The more you focus on the negative, the harder it gets to switch into a positive mindset. Being positive, optimistic and appreciative makes you more open towards other people – no matter who they are. It becomes easy to connect to your boss and co-workers.
