Workplace Annoyance

Workplace Annoyance

Annoying, Irritating, Disturbing, Displeasing, Bothering – some of the terms we use to describe some of the co-workers we don’t like.

For coffee-table gossip, this may seem like a light-hearted conversation but  it can have a cascading effect on overall morale and culture at work.

Some steps for leaders to correct this phenomena:

— Create once a month/fortnightly forums for your team-members to let go off the steam collectively. Let them vent and listen in a safe space.

— Guide them to be careful with their thoughts and words.

— Help them see each other’s perspectives and give time to cool down.

— If a member is too stubborn, discuss separately.

Do they listen during meetings?

Do they listen during meetings

Through our surveys and experiences, we have learnt that poor meetings at work are a common-place. There are many factors that make a poor meeting so, and one of the highest rated factors is when ‘members are more interesting in talking than listening to understand.’

Some tips for Leaders to facilitate sound listening skills during meetings:

-Encourage reflection on each other’s point.

-Collectively highlight the positives of points instead of dismissing them on face-value.

-Write down the common vision and task on a board or slide where everybody can see and remind self about the end-goal & largely talk about that only.

Holding Grudges & Grievances?

Holding Grudges & Grievances

Long-lasting Grudges and Grievances at work are such a common-place.

The waves they create can have torrential impact on future of organisation & the professional(s) who hold them.

3C Step-Approach is one of our suggested Models for Leaders to handle this:

  1. Create a regular Schedule to formally dedicate time and efforts to handle them.
  2. Categorize to filter and to know the types of Grudges/Grievances members carry.
  3. Call for collective solution(s) to acknowledge and bring focus towards future.
