Social skills and emotional intelligence are one of the most required virtues in order to succeed at work. There are personalities who cannot be victorious because of their following qualities:
1. Members of grapevine
People who actively participate in baseless or unprofessional conversations at their workplace never move ahead in the organization. Speculating rumours and distorting facts are considered unethical and totally unprofessional on the part of the employees. These people are not considered trustworthy and therefore often excluded from assigning any confidential tasks and are hardly entitled to a raise or promotion.
2. Those who never say never
These people struggle to say no and are found doing some meager or not so worthwhile activity. They are not assigned to something authoritative or progressive. They usually become the sidekicks of their seniors and in some cases, their co-workers as well. People take them for granted and therefore, they are left behind in the queue for promotions.
3. Resistant to change
These are the people who are not a very big fan of changes. They are very stringent and restrict any kind of changes. They do not even bother and completely ignore such practices even if the company’s progress is at stake. They are insecure and so attract a lot of problems towards them. They even disagree the most with their colleagues and mostly are not a team player.
4. One who is always in need
Helping someone is not a bad deed and neither is asking for a little help from your co-workers if you are a bit overworked sometimes. There are people in organizations who have the habit of making a fuss about anything. For them, even the slightest of tasks are heavy burdens. Well, pretty obvious, who likes a cry-baby at all?
5. Angry birds of the Company
They easily get irritated and hurt and do not know how to deal with their hot temper. They are not cool while conversing because of their poor judgments. They do not think twice before screaming at people and create a negative environment around themselves.
6. One who is filled with sass
These people are narcissists considering themselves to be the most intelligent and intellectual persons in a room. Not giving the ideal respect to other people’s ideas, they simply think theirs to be the best and brilliant. This kind of behaviour is considered very harmful to the company’s reputation, if, by chance, they act as the company’s representative anywhere.
7. The Mastermind
For them, to get to the top of the ladder is the main and the only priority. They do not care about the price they or others may have to pay for their goals. They do not worry about others. They do not even hesitate in taking credit for other people’s work. Their deeds are not hidden and so they are not well-liked in the organization.
