Take a look at these workplace scenarios. Seem familiar?
Frustrated Coworkers: Susan, Terri, and Tom have been working together for years. Although they all get along fairly well, they are frequently frustrated by each other. Susan can’t understand why Terri gets so upset over minor changes or issues and seems to rehash them for weeks. Terri can’t understand why Susan is so “matter-of-fact” and insensitive all of the time, dismissing issues almost as soon as they are identified. And, neither Susan nor Terri can understand why Tom has to endlessly question everything.
Battling Bosses: Zack and Melody manage two competing sales divisions. Zack’s group is known for providing outstanding service and Melody’s group is known for closing deals quickly. Both are constantly bad mouthing and blaming the other for problems occurring with shared accounts. Senior management is fed up with their behavior and expects them to resolve their conflicts and create an environment of mutual respect or both will be asked to step down even though they are both valuable team members.
Top Performer: Lee out performs everyone in the department and has consistently had outstanding reviews from his manager and customers. Senior management wants to know how he does this and if he can be cloned.
