What Are Strategies For Getting Along With People At Work Such As Colleagues And My Supervisor?

Question: What are strategies for getting along with people at work such as colleagues and my supervisor?

Answer: Well there's some basic rules that you can follow every day. Those rules are saying hello and making brief eye contact with people in the hallway as you enter work, or saying goodbye to them as you leave work. You can also keep conversations short, brief, and non-personal if you encounter people in the copier room or in the snack room or the break room. With your boss it may be important for he or she to know about your diagnosis, and for he or she to be able to help you with things that you struggle with.

In addition, you should ask your boss for a performance review on a regular basis. So every month when you first start working and every six months after you've been there for a while.
