The tried and true methods of the past may seem easier, but you'll find that this year, they just won't work as well to help move you into your future. Instead, though they may feel comfortable, they'll be keeping you locked in the past. For example, if you've over-relied on aggression to get the job done and make people see things your way, you might want to try a gentler, more communicative method.
You'll be surprised by how open others are to new ideas if they feel that they've been properly listened to first.Honesty is another good policy when working with others. And it's also a good policy for yourself. Consider your actions carefully. Does it seem like you're trying to get all of the power with none of the responsibility? Unfortunately, the world doesn't work so easily, and if you really expect to move forward, you're going to have to take responsibility for your own actions. At the same time, you'll want to make sure you don't go overboard with this; you don't need to put anyone else's needs before your own, but instead treat everyone (including yourself) equally. Similarly, if you can learn to compromise at work, you'll find yourself on the fast track to success.
