A recent article, Most Common Workplace Worries by Ceren Cubukcu says that most of our daily time is spent at workplace so ideally we want to feel relaxed and comfortable, but many of us feel anxious at work and always keep some fears at the back of our minds.

Below are the most common workplace fears and how we can overcome them.

  1. Unable to handle the workload.

In some workplaces like staffed flexible offices, there can be many days where you have to work overtime or on weekends. If you cannot handle this workload, try to rearrange  your activities to see if you can complete some of them faster or at least try to finish the important ones first. However, if you are still having difficulty organizing your workload, you can try to discuss it with your leader.

  1. Passed over for a promotion

If you really deserve a promotion and someone in the team office space has been trying to discredit you, then “stand up for your right”.   Build relationships with your coworkers so they can support you standing up for your rights.

  1. Dislike by your manager or leader.

We cannot always get along with everyone. If you feel that your manager or leader doesn’t like you, evaluate how you interact with her/him. Perhaps you cannot communicate well or maybe your work styles are different. Whatever the reason is, it is up to you to make it right.

  1. Getting fired.

At one point, anyone has the fear of getting fired due to economic issue or your company has been acquired by a bigger corporation.  If you have confidence with your manager, then you can talk to him/her about your worry of getting fired or you can ask him/her how you’re doing to get an idea about your stand in the workplace.
