— Bring a friend. Be sure to ask a mentor for help when facing a particularly difficult problem, and ask him or her for feedback when working on a critical project.
— Say "thank you." Sincere expressions of gratitude can help build strong business relationships.
— Give out treats. "Volunteer to assist overburdened colleagues, and be quick with praise for those who deliver outstanding work," the Accountemps release said. "You'll make people — including yourself — feel good and foster an environment where colleagues help each other on a regular basis."
This is good advice, and I hope it helps you overcome frightening situations in your own workplace. If there are other fears you've faced at work, let me know. I may revisit this topic in a future column, and maybe I can find some additional advice to help you.
If, on the other hand, your greatest fear is of your coworkers' outrageous Halloween costumes this week ... well, you're on your own!
