How to Be Transparent at Work

By Sandy Schroeder

We all want to be respected at work, and one of the best ways to make that happen is to be genuine.

Think about the people that you know who are totally transparent, and others who may or may not be. The level of trust that you have in the individuals is usually very different. tackles this subject and gives us some quick tips on being real.

Be Clear about Your Job

Do your best work and keep everyone apprised of what you are doing. When you are direct about your job, it makes it much easier for others to work with you. I have worked with people who did just the opposite. They worked on their own and seldom told anyone anything. That always made it interesting when they were absent and jobs had to be completed.

Be Clear about Your Views

Often there are opposing views on work issues. Don't insist on your way. Just be clear about what you think and why you feel that way. Sometimes a good discussion can generate a compromise that becomes the best choice. Always be willing to listen and ask questions to understand opposing views.

Avoid Gossips and Troublemakers

Every office has them, but it is smart to head in the opposite direction when they appear. The grapevine goes on, but you don't have to support it. Do your best to sidestep gossip and reserve comment if you are confronted.

Lend a Hand When You Can

Genuine people monitor what is going on and step up when they can help others. If you see someone with a problem, offer to help if you can. Also volunteer when workloads build.

Share the Glory

Most of us have worked with someone who was eager to claim glory, but never willing to accept blame. Keep a low profile. Bosses always know who is doing the work.

Stay Informed and Alert

Real people who are interested in getting the job done pay attention. They have an overview of the company, and an awareness of how their efforts fit in the process. They also take the time to go beyond their workplace to meet more people. Often when they reach out they pick up information that makes them more effective.

Every job is different, but the ability to spot genuine people seldom changes. Most of us know real when we see it, and we are happy to support it.
