management tip of the day: before complaining about a colleague, ask yourself these questions:
- Does your short- or long-term success rely on addressing this problem?
- Is this person a direct report or a boss?
- Will you be working for them in the short term? Is it an ongoing relationship?
- How important is it to you and the organization to improve the situation?
- Is the issue affecting your ability to concentrate or how you feel about going to work every day?
