We all know that success comes with being consistent and working hard. But if you want to rise up the ladder, workplace manners are really important. They can either make your career, or break it. So while its important to take your work seriously, its also necessary to follow some dos and don'ts in the professional space.  Here are 11 workplace habits that are probably coming in the way of your next promotion.

1. Checking your phone in a meeting or while talking to your manager.



Checking your phone constantly indicates that you are not focused or present in an important discussion.

2. Complaining about your boss, teammates, workload, the coffee or the canteen food!



Complaining about everything makes you a toxic person - which is exactly the sort of person people usually run away from. This behaviour can damage your reputation, and land you in trouble.

3. Agreeing to everything.



Being a people pleaser may seem a sure-shot way to succeed, but it isnt. Agreeing with a bad idea or favouring a non-profitable project can backfire later. Eventually, people will learn that you are acting smart and are not giving constructive criticism.

4. Staying late in office even though you are not required.



Why would you do that? Its a waste of time, and energy and says nothing about your seriousness towards work. It probably gives the impression that you only invest in wasteful things.

5. Returning late from lunch break, or any break for that matter.



If you constantly show up late at work, or return late from breaks, it shows a careless and disinterested attitude. Being a little prompt wont cost you much. All you need to do is time yourself.

6. Ignoring emails, or taking too long to respond.



If you are one of those who has a bad habit of taking too long to check or respond to your e-mails, you can come across as unprofessional. In fact, this attitude could lead to missing important meetings or deadlines and unnecessary delays or confusion. In fact, learning effective email habits can really be a boon.
