October 4, 2007

Tonight I was serving as Language Evaluator at the Nee Soon East Toastmasters Club. It is one of the Clubs that I am mentoring. Over the last few months, this club has been like a phoenix, rising from the ashes and reviving its days of glory. The membership has been consistently growing and the passion of the members ever present.

One such enthusiastic member was Sweta, She hailed from India and was a lecturer there. Since becoming a Toastmaster a few weeks ago, Sweta has been a regular project speaker at the Club meetings. When you visit our Club meetings, you can see her fervor and intense desire to be a competent speaker.

Tonight, in her project speech, she shared with us her tips for creating a perfect relationship with your boss. They are direct and poignant. Thanks for your sharing, Sweta.

Here’s goes:

1. Be popular.

2. Willing to do extra.

3. Take criticism well.

4. Be open minded.

5. Accompany problem with solution.

6. Praise but not flatter.

7. Be loyal.

8. Under promise, over deliver.

Many of these advices are practical and applicable. Integrate them into your working relationships. Besides, who’s to say you that cannot use these tips when working with colleagues or in our personal relationships?

Do keep these tips in mind whenever it comes to interaction and relationships at the workplace. I’m sure your career will excel beyond excellence!
