Ability to reason

So before you lash out at someone who has a different opinion– think. The ability to reason is what sets us apart, so we should do it more often. Set aside differences. Start learning about other points of view. Gather facts and make your own decisions. Then communicate ideas to solve problems instead of perpetuating or escalating them. Never resort to name calling or swearing. This just sets everything back even further. Try talking to the “other side.” And keep trying even if you get shut down.

Turning from negative behaviour at work may mean that people will not automatically see you as changed. Instead, they may continue to interpret your behaviour through a certain box they've put you in. As a result, they may be cautious about offering higher-profile projects or leadership opportunities, as the stakes may feel too high.

Speak candidly to your manager about your changed behaviour and see if you can get more opportunities, but moving on might be the only way to really start over.
