Blind loyalty serves no one. Before you commit to anything at work, gather all the details to avoid promising something which you cannot deliver. Attempting to establish harmony by cultivating reciprocity between your colleagues and you is a daunting task. Consequently, be sure you fully understand what is expected of you now, and the role others can play in your success. Although requesting clarification from your boss or supervisor may feel awkward at first, your outreach will prevent multiple headaches down the road. Transparency saves time.
