  • Don't be afraid to say: "I don't know." If you don't know something, say so. Don't try to fake it;
  • Take responsibility. If you are wrong, admit it, take the blame and apologise;
  • Never gossip. This can hurt the person talked about and the person doing the talking;
  • Never say: "That's not my job." Don't think you are above everything. Pitch in and set a good example, especially if the job is one that nobody else wants to do. Your willingness to do so will be noticed and appreciated:
  • Share the credit. People who share credit make a much better impression than those who take all the credit themselves;
  • Ask for help. Don't let difficult task get out of hand. Ask before things get worse;
  • Keep your dislike to yourself. If you don't like someone, don't let it show. Never burn bridges or offend others as you move ahead in your career;
  • Don't hold grudges. Life isn't always fair. If you were passed over for promotion or didn't get the project you wanted let it go. Be gracious and diplomatic, focus on the future and move on. Harbouring grudges won't advance your career.
  • Be humble. When you are right don't gloat about it. Never say "I told you so"; and
  • Make others feel important. Compliment them, emphasize their strengths and contributions and help them.
