Do your coworkers drive you crazy sometimes?
Do you have pet peeves about your boss and coworkers? If you do, the good news is that you're not alone and that you're - normal. Even sane and likeable people have habits and behaviors that can drive their coworkers crazy.
People miss work; they miss deadlines. Some people are perpetually late for meetings. They dress unprofessionally: in one client company, a customer service representative wears crumpled cotton capris and beachwear to work everyday and wonders why no new opportunity appears on her horizon.
In another, a manager talks down to employees and acts as if he is the only one contributing to accomplishing work. In still another, an employee, who regularly interacts with the public at trade shows, decided to grow long hair and a beard and wear jeans to trade shows.
An otherwise valued employee at another company spoils her boss's day three times a week by repeatedly asking for a raise when the company is not giving raises.
In some organizations, bad boss behavior is legendary. Sometimes, a new boss is assigned a dysfunctional team. Every workplace has different stories about employee behavior that can drive others crazy.
