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.
