"Stay Upbeat."
Retail Buying is often riddled with social politics because many people clamour to break into the industry. Asserting your confidence, staying upbeat, and remaining calm in the face of changing priorities will keep people on your side. Even if you are an assistant, you should carry yourself like a leader: Act quickly, but don't rush. Be calm and proactive, don't appear flustered and reactive. And finally, keep gossip to a minimum.
