Four Tips To Get Along Well With Your Colleague

1. Smile and be friendly

If you're the type of person who comes into work and walks straight to your desk, immediately opening up your email and tuning out everything and everyone around you, you might want to reconsider your attitude. Not only does this behaviour isolate you, it isolates others, too.

While you may want to maintain a work-only mentality at the office, smiling and acting friendly toward others will go a long way, you can say 'Good morning. How are you? How's it going? Be friendly and open  and you look less intimidating when you smile. 

2. Be a team player

Help others when you can. If someone needs help carrying a box or stapling some documents together, or just wants to bounce an idea off of you, make yourself available.

Being available and supportive will help you move ahead in your job and progress in your field. "You'll be perceived as someone who people want to work with. You're not just there to check email, you're there to interact as well.

3. Be aware of how you come across

If you are not aware of your body language, you may come across in a way that is unintentional. Your body language and tone of voice convey more than your actual words. So think before you react and put more effort into creating a friendly impression.

For example, if a coworker comes to talk to you, instead of barking, "What do you want?" ask him politely how you can help. If you're too swamped to chat, let him know that you'd love to talk right now, but you can't,  Be sure to provide the reason why and then set a time to reconnect.

4. Take your relationship to the next step

Spend some time with your coworkers away from the office to get to know them better. If you get to know your office mates as human beings instead of just work colleagues, it will make your relationships that much stronger. You are so much more than your role at work, so this will give you the chance to connect. Talk to people about things that matter to them. This will make them feel cared about as people, not just for what they can do for you.
