Don't judge the help offered by others

Employees have various pre-meditated notions about how we feel about the corporate culture, and how we see our colleagues. As a result of it, seldom these notions overshadow the reality.

So, it must be common for you all, where you tried to help your colleague, still faced flak from them. It is a part and parcel of the corporate world- hard to believe in people, even when they are being good.

I have seen many people cribbing about others in this aspect. In fact, a few colleagues of mine used to blame me for I am trying to take advantage while helping them. In some extreme cases, they thought that I offered help only to reap benefits. Even though I tried to explain to them, after a few instances, I stopped helping them. They realized my nature later; and now, even if they ask for help, I don’t respond very positively.
