Please Stop Bcc’ing Your Boss on Emails

Bcc'ing your boss on emails may seem harmless. You're just keeping your manager in the loop about that important project, and it's no big deal if the other recipients don't know — right? Wrong. Research shows that bbc'ing the boss can corrode trust if teammates find out, because the sender's intentions aren't clear. To your colleagues, it may seem as though you were being underhanded or sneaky. If you need the boss to know what's happening, don't bcc them; forward the relevant email with a note, or write a new email that's personally addressed to them. You can frame the email as an update, which achieves the same goal as bcc'ing — without the risk of alienating your colleagues. These extra steps take a little more time, yes, but they'll also keep you from damaging your relationships at work.

Shift Your Perspective At Work By Telling Yourself A Different Story

We all tell ourselves stories about work, and these stories shape the way we think, lead, and make decisions. For instance, if the story that runs through your head all day is “Everything’s a battle in this office,” you’re more likely to expect hostility and be primed to attack. Negative stories like this one generally don’t help you, so consider shifting to a new narrative. Start by identifying a challenge you’re facing, and then ask: “What is the basic story I’m telling myself about this issue?” Consider how the story is affecting you and your team. Is it constraining or liberating? If the latter, think about what you’d like to change and how your story needs to shift. What reimagined (and true) version of the story would be more useful for pursuing your goals or doing things differently? Rewriting a story is often a matter of choosing to see a situation from a different, more-positive, perspective.

Build A Network That Challenges Your Point Of View

When your network is mostly people whose backgrounds and skill sets are similar to yours, it’s unlikely to help you find new ideas or creative solutions. Diversify your network by connecting with people whose viewpoints, insights, and experiences differ from your own. When you meet someone new, talk about what you don’t have in common. Ask friends to introduce you to their contacts who have an interesting job or who work in a unique space. In particular, try to meet people who will challenge your assumptions and biases. If you’re struggling to build your network in the usual ways, create a reason to bring a diverse group together. For example, a monthly book club can give you the chance to hear a variety of perspectives, as well as to read authors you wouldn’t normally pick up. By making a concerted effort, you can develop a network that both inspires you and pushes you to expand your thinking.
