The Best Ways to Ruin Your Professional Reputation

The Best Ways to Ruin Your Professional Reputation

  1. Don’t Set Expectations
  2. Badmouth a Former Employer
  3. Lose Your Temper
  4. Manage Your Social Media Accounts Poorly
  5. Bring Your Personal Problems to the Office
  • A bad breakup makes you sad, distracted, and disinterested in your work
  • A newborn child causes frequent tardiness at work
  • A family member or close friend dies and your work performance drops

I don’t think I agree with everything since it can be a sign of a good culture if you’re supportive in many ways of your co-workers. The reverse can be true too.

  1. Stephen, I think I’ve broken every one of these rules, and yet, somehow, to quote Stephen Sondheim, “I’m still here.” Hope to see you at ALA!
