Don’t Allow Your Memory to be the Cause of Your Next Conflict

  • What else is the colleague working on? Understanding their bias, overall mood, context & workload will help prevent a recurrence.

Key takeaway?

There is no value in having an argument about the past or getting upset by it. Remove your ego. You might be wrong. They might be right. Ultimately what matters is getting on with the job, not assigning blame. That means having a conversation outlining why the task was important and understanding the bias and context your colleague is working under. Neither of which you will get from an argument.

Coach. Making work a happier, healthier & wealthier place for everyone.
