Of course, we are street smart, but our boss is smarter to capture what are we as a person and how far our personality trait would prove to maintain peace in the work place... in this regard, many bosses want their employees to maintain secrecy at work place not letting any issue to be known by any other through them, that could lead to unnecessary miss understanding...
I do understand even though we do not tend to reveal a secret about the work or what so ever to our colleagues, situations arise in such a way that many times without our senses we tend to ‘reveal' that top most secret to our colleagues... just imagine if the manager gets to know about this act of us, what would be our impact in his/her mind? To avoid all these learn how you can maintain secrecy at work place;
When it comes to your working life, you need to be emotionally mature and able to act professionally in every situation so that you can be viewed in this light by your managers and bosses. If you act like an immature child, management will likely see you that way, and treat you accordingly. Unless you want to sit at the same desk for the rest of your life without any chance of promotion, you need to buck up, grow up, and prove that you are emotionally mature enough to handle moving up in the company to a better position.
Keep in mind that emotional maturity isn’t all about behaving and acting professional. It’s also about controlling your anger and your personal feelings when something is work related, because you don’t want to get the two confused. You might have a disagreement with a coworker, but that doesn’t mean that you can get angry-or worse yet, physically harm them-because they shoved you out of their way. You simply need to let it go, relax, and focus on the task at hand, which is your work. It’s always nice to make friends and interact socially in the workplace, but the best work environments are those where there aren’t tangled webs of gossip and relationships that are keeping people from being productive. These things show signs of great immaturity on the entire company’s part.
If you really want a professional job, you need a professional attitude and environment to work in. Dealing with people that are less than professional can become stressful, but you shouldn’t waste your time trying to deal with them or even paying attention to them. Instead, you should just let them go and try to do your job the best that you can. Work shouldn’t be boring and repetitive by any means, but it’s also called work for a reason. You can socialize and act silly with your friends after you are off the clock. Those who are the most emotionally mature (or appear to be so) will have the best odds of success in the workplace, after all.
