Never make a comment – either oral or written – when you’re angry or frustrated.If you do have to make a critical comment about someone, be sure that you know all the relevant facts before you form – and, in particular, express – your opinion.
Being diplomatic in the workplace is also about being a good coworker.
This means that you should develop an awareness of your coworkers.
There are two general principles that should be followed to be diplomatic in the workplace – be aware of the corporate culture of the organization, and be a good coworker.
Being diplomatic requires awareness of the organization’s corporate culture.
It requires you to consider and follow some specific guidelines.
Although tact and diplomacy are two different aspects of communicating, both must be brought together to communicate effectively.
It’s important to “tap into” the corporate culture, and ensure that what you say and do are consistent with it.
Failing to adhere to the way things are done will be particularly obvious to others – and may come across as undiplomatic.
You need to develop an awareness of your coworkers, give credit where due, and avoid making negative comments about coworkers.
