Jatinder Question by Jatinder on Mar 10, 2023Hindi

Hello mam, I hv recently joined a new organization. I hvn't earlier worked with a female boss. So what are the things that an employee generally should take care of while dealing/working with a female boss ? Thanks ...

Ans: Dear Jatinder,
I don't see any reason to treat two gender differently.
If there's one thing that you might want to keep a check on it would any belief that you have picked up along the way or while you were being raised where women are being treated less than a man at home or where you saw a woman at home becoming submissive to an authority male figure.
This is something that might cause an unconscious bias of you not wanting to take orders from your woman boss as you feel challenged to disobey her. Also guard yourself against generalizations about women like: Women are always emotional, women can never look at things objectively etc. This will affect your judgement and you might lose out working under an accomplished person.
Keep a check on this...other than that, it goes without saying, male or female; respect for another person and their thought processes will help you grow and thrive.

Look forward to a new learning phase!

All the best!

Hello Mam, how to control anger during the job.
Ans: Hi Priyank,

Hope you are doing well.

Apology for the delay in replying.

It's natural to feel angry at times, but it's how you respond to and manage that anger that matters in a professional setting. It's important to decode the emotion (in this case it is anger). For example- when you get angry- ask yourself what is the reason behind. Is it because someone is not listening to you, is it because you are not ok with the idea been shared or is there any other reason. Here, you need to work on yourself in understanding different perspectives of the given situation.

Few simple gateways -
Recognize your triggers- Identify the situations or factors that trigger your anger. This could be a difficult colleague, a heavy workload, or tight deadlines. Awareness is the first step in control.

Take a Break: When you feel anger building, step away from the situation, if possible. A short break can help you cool down and gain perspective.

Use "I" Statements (this is a game changer): When discussing a problem with a colleague or anyone, use "I" statements to express your feelings and needs without blaming or accusing. For example, say, "I feel frustrated when..." instead of "You always..."

Problem-Solve: Instead of focusing on the problem itself, shift your attention to finding solutions. This can help you feel more in control.

These are few navigations which you can start to practice. I will be keen to know your progress.

Until then Be You. Be Confident.

To Your Success

Asked by Anonymous - Jan 30, 2024Hindi
I have recently started my first job in Delhi. The male to female ratio in the office is 60-40. Though some of the girls are pretty but I would like to maintain a proper office decorum. Please guide me as to how can I approach my female colleagues in order to avoid any misunderstanding or walking the wrong path.
Ans: Hello. That’s a rather thoughtful question.

Approaching your female colleagues in a professional and respectful manner is crucial to fostering a healthy work environment.
Here are some tips that can help you avoid misunderstandings while interacting with them:

1. Professionalism First: Regardless of their gender, treat all colleagues with the same level of professionalism. Focus on building work relationships based on mutual respect and common goals.

2. Respect Personal Space: Be mindful of personal space and boundaries. Avoid invading someone's personal space. Be aware of cultural differences that may influence personal boundaries.

3. Use Inclusive Language: Use inclusive language that promotes a sense of equality. Avoid making gender-specific comments or assumptions. Focus on work-related topics and common interests.

4. Be Mindful of Body Language: Pay attention to non-verbal cues and body language. If someone appears uncomfortable, adjust your behavior accordingly. Respect signals indicating when someone may need space or is not interested in engaging in conversation.

5. If you feel the need to give compliments, keep them professional and work-related. Complimenting someone on their professional achievements or contributions is generally safe.

6. Avoid Personal topics: Refrain from discussing personal or sensitive topics, especially in the early stages of getting to know your colleagues. Stick to neutral subjects related to work or common interests.

7. Office Events and Social Gatherings: Participate in office events and social gatherings where you can interact with colleagues in a more relaxed setting. This can contribute to building positive relationships outside of the formal work environment.

8. Request Feedback: If you are unsure about your interactions or if you want to ensure that your behavior is appropriate, consider seeking feedback from colleagues or mentors. Constructive feedback can help you improve and navigate workplace dynamics more effectively.

Remember, the key is to be respectful, considerate and professional in all interactions.

Building positive relationships with your colleagues, irrespective of their gender, will contribute to a more inclusive and supportive work environment.

All the best!
