Have you ever wondered how to increase your self-esteem in the workplace? We have 3 easy steps for you!
Don’t you wish to be treated with respect and worth in the workplace? Of course, we all secretly dream of it. However, it seems very easy to achieve, but more often than not, it takes people years to accomplish this in their workplace.
The reasons for the delay in achieving this feat may vary from person to person and also company to company. We miss how to read people and situations and make them turn in our favour. The workplace culture also plays a crucial role in getting the respect you deserve.
Before diving deeper into how to earn self-worth and increase your self-esteem, it is important to understand workplace personalities and choose your ways accordingly. If you don’t understand the people you are dealing with, all your efforts will be futile!
There are 10 different workplace personality types, says Jennifer Herrity, career coach and author at Indeed. Knowing each of these personality types can give you the upper hand in managing them better and help you know your self-worth and play along accordingly.
The personalities include:
Based on your understanding of your peers/subordinates or bosses, you get to choose how to tackle them and get them on your side to get the work done without tampering with your self-worth.
Become a keen observer, and pay attention to every detail of how your subordinates are, who plays the good cop, and who plays the bad cop. Being aware of their personalities make you immune to any comments hurting your self-worth.
As you will be well aware of how the person is and how is their personality. You will act wisely and not emotionally.
Speak less and listen more. Listening to people gives you a wider perspective of the situation and how they see the situation or project to be. It gives you a better vision of where you can position yourself.
If you speak more and listen less, there are chances you miss out on other viewpoints, making you feel less valued or less worthy.
Keep everyone who outranks you in the conversation loop – either a mail or through chat. Make sure they are aware of any changes or additions to the project.
Having everyone on the same page as you make you feel confident about the work you have been doing.
These are a few ways I have tried to learn and understand throughout my work tenure. I hope this helps all those reading. If you have encountered any other ways, feel free to share them in the comments, and let’s help each other.

Ms. Kulkarni, please don’t apologise ‘IF’ you think you hurt women. Apologise because you got your facts wrong. Apologise for making sexual harassment a casual joke.
If Sonali Kulkarni’s speech on most modern Indian women being lazy left me shocked and enraged, her apology post left me deeply saddened.
I’d shared my thoughts on her problematic speech in an earlier article. So, I’ll share why I felt Kulkarni’s apology post was more damaging than her speech.
If her speech made her an overnight hero among MRAs, sexists, and people who were awed by her dramatic words, then her apology post made her a legendary saint.
There are many mountains I need to climb just to be, just to live my life, just to have my say... because they are mountains you've built to oppress women.
Trigger Warning: This deals with various kinds of violence against women including rape, and may be triggering for survivors.
I haven’t climbed a literal mountain yet
Was busy with the metaphorical ones – born a woman
Fighting for the air that should have come free
And I am one of the privileged ones, I realize that
Yet, if I get passionate, just like you do
I will pay for it – with burden, shame, – and possibly a life to carry
So, my mountains are the laws you overturn
My mountains are the empty shelves where there should have been pills
