Facing rejection in the workplace

workplace rejection

The sting of rejection doesn’t hurt any less in the professional world than it does in your personal life. Being rejected at work can feel like a breakup. Maybe you were passed over for a promotion or had one of your ideas shot down by a manager.

Many people tend to take rejection as criticism. Try being objective in your thinking rather than taking it personally. A rejection of your idea or proposal is not a rejection of you. Understanding why the rejection happened can help settle your mindset, so seek feedback and try viewing the situation from other perspectives.
