Try to keep your own body relaxed and in a posture that shows security.
Open your mind
Einstein was right: “The mind is like a parachute. It only works while open”. In a working context, it is not only important to be capable of connecting with colleagues, but also to understand the culture and organization of the new position. Be open to new things and new approaches!
