9 Work Secrets to Keep
By David Najor :: Monday, October 13, 2008 :: 51356 Views :: Career & Education, Business & Finance

Chaldeans are known for their congeniality and good-nature.  What would seem on the surface to be a wonderful trait, can become a huge risk in a corporate setting.  Chaldean professionals making their way through the corporate maze are forewarned that it’s easy to let imprudent information slip out. 

There are at least nine things Chaldeans or any professional minded go-getter should always keep to themselves at work. While some of these points are obvious, anyone who’s spent any time at all in an office can vouch for the fact that this advice bears repeating, and that heeding it could avoid a whole lot of unproductive drama.

1. You’re looking for a new job.
While it can be tempting to tell your friends at work about how well your latest job interview went or how you can’t wait to resign, resist these urges.
  
2. You’re romantically involved with a co-worker.
If you do choose to tempt fate and begin court one of your co-workers, it’s probably wise not to tell anyone else at work about your interest. Not only is revealing too many details about your personal life unprofessional, but if the romance goes south, an already stressful breakup will be intensified by the unwelcome extra attention from your co-workers and negatively impact productivity. 
  
3. You had a wild weekend.
While it’s common for co-workers to talk about what they did over the weekend around the water cooler on Monday morning, it’s wise to avoid sharing details that could paint you in an unflattering light.
  
4. You were really at the beach when you called in sick.
  
5. You frequently “borrow” office supplies.
  
6. You despise your boss or another colleague.
If you’ve found yourself embroiled in a contentious relationship with your manager or a co-worker, do your best not to broadcast your dislike to the entire company. For one thing, talking about a co-worker behind his or her back can make other employees think that you’re unprofessional and disrespectful. Also, open hostility can create an uncomfortable work environment for everyone and decrease other colleagues’ morale and happiness.
  
7. You have a colorful past.
Anecdotes about co-workers have a tendency to morph as they move from employee to employee, so by the time the story gets back to you, your night in jail for being in a bar fight or arguing with a cop over a traffic ticket may well have turned into to a 10-year sentence as  a prohibition style mobster still on the run from the law.
  
8. You’re planning a coup in your department.
Thinking about presenting the CEO with a groundbreaking business idea that will skyrocket you to the top of the department and oust your superiors along the way? Then mum’s the word.

9. You plan starting your own business.
Owning your own businesses is the American dream and a noble goal.  However, letting co-workers know that you plan on siphoning all you can before you start your own firm is just begging for the boot.  Best to learn as much as you can and quietly help improve society by creating a more competitive offering for the public to choose from.
