WORKING WITH NEW COLLEAGUES OR…HOW NOT TO HATE PEOPLE YOU WORK WITH?
This chapter continues with our story. Once you have been hired at the bookstore and have learned everything on how to make a good impression during your first day at work, is time for you to get accustomed to working with new colleagues. To do that you will have to refer to social intelligence.
Social intelligence: ability to connect with others in a deep and direct way, to sense and stimulate reactions and desired interactions. Socially intelligent employees are able to quickly assess the emotions of those around them and adapt their words, tone and gestures accordingly. This has always been a key skill for workers who need to collaborate and build relationships of trust, but it is even more important as we are called on to collaborate with larger groups of people in different settings.
