Some people think that the path to success is working hard but trust us, building relationships are important as well. It is important to think about others around you. Are you a teacher who wants to be on good terms with colleagues?
1) Never get into a competition
When you start working at a new place you will eventually realize that there are many teachers working at the same designation. For example, there might be different subject teachers teaching the same students. This means that there will be many teachers working in the same spot as you. You won’t be able to get some attention instantly so you need to wait for it. Don’t ever try to seek attention because this will make you look bad.
The most important thing you need to remember always is avoiding competition. Yes, we know there is competition everywhere and it’s good to be in a competitive environment but always try to perceive things positively. Don’t try to get into a competition with your colleagues. Its true you should think about competition because it will help you grow in terms of knowledge but considering everyone as a competition can actually lead to a bad reputation for you. So, take things positively, yes, they are your competitors but that is on a professional level. Always try to build positive connections personally.
2) Help others
It is always suggested to help others because helping others will make you a better person. You can’t act mean and think about yourself only. If you don’t help your colleagues then they’ll obviously try staying away from you. It’s not necessary to leave your own work to help them but you should always try to help them whenever you can. This will lead to better relationships between you and your colleagues. You should make some efforts to make your colleagues feel important. Your colleagues should be able to trust you. This will help you earn a name for yourself as well.
