Go Ahead, Let Them See You Sweat

Do you participate in any sporting events or leagues with co-workers? If not, you might want to consider it. As this article, from Yahoo! explains, it pays to let them see you sweat:

"Joining your company's athletic teams can enhance your physique and your career. How? The boundaries between cubicles and corner offices disappear on a court, field or pitch. If you work at a large- or even medium-sized company, you'll probably meet people you otherwise wouldn't even nod at on the elevator. "Company partners and people in the mailroom play together," says Crockette an auditor of employee benefit plans at Deloitte. "Your title is left behind the moment you leave the office."

"When Mark Junio was hired at General Casualty in Sun Prairie, Wis., ten years ago, his manager neglected to introduce him to the company's senior execs. Not knowing the top brass made him feel like he was at a disadvantage. So, soon after he was hired, Junio joined the company's bowling league and quickly became friendly with the organization's key officers because they bowled together weekly. "Now I'm at the point where I can discuss business with a senior person with confidence," says Junio, a claim unit manager in the workers compensation department. "That comes from bowling and having a few beers afterwards."
