     At work, sharing the right aspects of yourself in the right ways is an art form.
     Disclosures that feel like relationship builders in the moment can wind up as obvious
     no-nos with hindsight.
     Trouble is, you can’t build a strong professional network if you don’t open up to your
     colleagues. Doing so is 
tricky, because revealing the wrong things can have a
     devastating effect on your career.

We’ve all said things that people interpreted much differently than we thought they
    would. These seemingly benign comments lead to the awful feeling that only comes
    when you’ve planted your foot firmly into your mouth.
    Verbal slip-ups often occur because we say things without knowledge of the subtle
    implications they carry. Understanding these implications requires social awareness
    — the ability to pick up on the emotions and experiences of other people.

Everybody makes mistakes—that’s a given—but not everyone learns from them. Some
     people make the same mistakes over and over again, fail to make any real progress, and
     can’t figure out why.
