Are you trying to make friends or fans?

To succeed in your working environment, being on a friendly bases with your peers is a must. Yet many aren't trying to make friends, but would rather see their colleagues become their fans. Once you achieve prominence in your office, after repeatedly doing something well, you'll find people notice you and wanting to praise you. Resist temptation to just let them ask you questions without reciprocating. Don't let them be amazed by you while not finding anything in their work or personal interests that you can be enthusiastic about (and let them know you are).

Person that has just fans in the office will see the initial positive energy eventually turn into envy. The one who returns the praises will be seen as gracious, and would generate loyal followers. Just don't forget to continue to deliver beyond the expectations and not take your fame for granted!

To your success!
