Lekcja 13: Toksyczni współpracownicy

Większość z nas spędza w pracy niemal połowę swego dorosłego życia, co oznacza, że kilka godzin dziennie przebywamy w towarzystwie tych samych ludzi. Niestety zazwyczaj to nie my ich sobie wybieramy, a choć zdarza się, że możecie tworzyć zgrany zespół życzliwych sobie ludzi, to czasem złośliwość losu sprawia, że tuż obok naszego biurka sroży się prawdziwy potwór. Jak sobie z nim poradzić?

Newest scientific discoveries

Goodbye city life

In his career as a hedge fund manager Ed Venables apologised all too often to his wife, Kate, for missing important family occasions.

Giving your inheritance to charity

Do five simple things a day

The Gap Year - a must for any self-respecting student

Despite tuition fees and student debt, almost a third, or 130,000 sixth-formers, set out from the UK each year on a gap-year adventure before heading off to university, according to Mintel, the market analyst. Few who take a year out ever regret it and most say they have made far more of their time

Tears are no longer taboo

In other words, we cry at moments when our emotions brim over. The precise psychological mechanics of emotional tears are still debated by academics, but there is a general agreement that they perform a cathartic action relieving feelings of stress, supporting the oft-given advice from well meaning

Breaking the e-mail compulsion (part 2)

If you find your mouse straying towards the "check email" button far too often, try these tactics: Turn off intrusive alerts. Anything that pops up, flashes, or goes "ding!" will interrupt you when you're trying to focus and will trigger a response to check your email. Set your e

How to protect your privacy at work

Just how much privacy are you entitled to at work? With some staff being filmed even when they visit the toilets, it's a vexed issue for employee rights. For some staff "Big Brother is watching you" is all too uncomfortably true. After all, it is standard practice in many workplaces to rec

Colour me happy

It's all about function and ratio. If you want a space where people will have a quick meeting, you might use bright and exciting colours - people can only stand them for five minutes to half an hour, and that will influence the way they talk to each other in that space. But a meeting room, where you

Migrants and unattractive told to leave

How ethical are you?

If you return the money would it be because: (a) It is wrong not to return someone else's property; (b) It wouldn't be fair to the bank's shareholders; or (c) I might get found out and prosecuted for theft. Each of the answers a, b or c is correct, with each representing one of the three main moral

Desk jockeys

Take a quick look around your office. Everyone is staring intently at their screens, quietly getting on with their work - or so it seems. But now look for the telltale wires snaking from peoples' ears - and the iPods and music players sitting on their desks. Some workplaces traditionally have a musi

Size matters

Large companies, as the thinking goes, are anonymous places where you simply disappear among the masses. They are more formal, keen on marketing-speak and like horrible, mission-statement posters and strict hierarchy. Small companies are great if you fancy a bit of responsibility - in theory you're

Cover stars

Got a new job? Exciting stuff - even if it is only until the person you're replacing returns to work.

How to retire

That's why it's important to plan ahead - by ensuring your Monopoly board is in good working order and there aren't too many letters missing from your Scrabble set.

Tribulations of the homeworker

Like many people I struggle to get the work-life balance right.

How to retire

Board games will help you through that difficult first weekend, but you'll still need to find a way to fill the next 30 years. Cruises are popular among the recently retired. This is because being trapped with a group of people you don't particularly like - while carrying out a series of repetitive

How to e-network

While nepotism has its limits (you're never going to get a job as a molecular biologist purely on the basis of having the right connections), knowing someone in the industry you want to get into can't do your chances any harm. At the very least you can phone up to cadge a few tips on what to put in

Surviving the social minefield at work

Indeed anyone new is often slightly overwhelmed by trying to find out who the chief is, and how he or she can ingratiate themselves with the witch-doctor. You forget when you've been working somewhere a while that there are secret places, phrases, in-jokes and taboos that took you a while to learn.

Appraisals

Obviously, this will include a fair appraisal of your work so far, an insightful critique of both strengths and shortcomings, and a mutually agreed plan for how to forge ahead to new career successes.Or at least i

Rich Hill has worked as a door-to-door salesman, a receptionist, an administrator, a PR, and an account handler.

How to deal with truants from the workplace

What better place to visit, then, to explore "sick-note culture" than a government agency so endemically unwell that sick leave seems to be a way of life. At the UK Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) every member of staff takes on average more than 11 sick days annually - on top of

Speak up loud and proud

Today's consumer society has become astonishingly adept at inventing pointless, hopeless, resource-sucking gizmos, but let's not pretend we have a monopoly on this.

Jealousy in the workplace not always a negative thing

Which might mean we're not such lovely people - but in the workplace, jealousy might not be such a bad thing: keeping an envious eye on your coworkers could help you earn a higher salary and a faster route up the career ladder.While most managers would prefer to keep negative emotions out of the off

Spreading office gossip

Frankly, it's a little unfair. But that makes no difference to anyone. As one who has experienced both playgrounds and offices, I can safely say that the latter is definitely as cruel an environment.The problem is that bitching is such a good bonding experience. Everyone gets to feel simultaneously

The rise of corporate yoga classes

If the prospect of spending any more time with your work colleagues already fills you with dread, having to take a seven-day break in a villa, pagoda or teepee studying yoga with them will probably tip you over the edge altogether. A growing number of bosses, however, think yoga breaks are a great i

How to get a pay rise

Colleagues call you ace, you always look busy and the chief executive knows who you are thanks to some smart moves at the office Christmas party. But have you done enough to earn yourself a raise? Not on that evidence. Here's what it really takes to make the perfect pitch and boost your pay packet:

The hollowing of today's corporations

The company, that place where you spend nearly a third of your life, is being whittled away. It is becoming hollow. The hollow company looks like an old-fashioned business: but vital parts are missing. Some went in the trend for outsourcing core functions, such as manufacturing and customer services

Burned out at work by boredom

Does work drag? Do you start clock watching at 9.35am? Is the only thing that motivated you to return after Christmas the fact that your employer hasn't blocked Facebook yet? If the answer to these is yes, you may be suffering from "rust out".As the name suggests, rust out is burn out's bo

The 10 worst office Christmas gifts

It may be true that it's the thought that counts, but when it comes to distributing 500,000 condoms engraved with the company's details - as one firm did to staff last Christmas - there may be a case for keeping your thoughts to yourself, writes Virginia Matthews in The Times. "We think it was

Beware naked ambition

In some situations it seems that determined careerists should keep the full size of their aspirations under their hats. Overt displays of ambition can damage people's chances at work, says Grace Borelli, a managing partner at the recruitment agency CTPartners. One reason for this is that obvious amb

How to stay permanently temporary

But any well-meaning concerns for the latest office temp - who doesn't know anybody's name and who can't work the coffee machine - may be misplaced.Far from being part of some mournful office underclass desperate for a full-time post, a growing number of workers are viewing temping as a career in it

How to socialise with the boss

So best to take advantage of the situation with some turbo-charged hobnobbing. Why, after all, spend time talking with Steve from the Swindon office when you could be chatting with someone important? Why chain yourself to a group of techies swapping hamster jokes when you could be winning influence

Robots, progress and the human cost

Fulfilling the dreams of bosses everywhere, Wakamaru San is never late, doesn't gossip or throw sickies, and somewhat unnervingly never stops smirking.

Should you dare to take a lunch break?

You would never admit it to your boss, but it is the kind of question that preoccupies modern office workers more than the fate of the company's share price, the impact of the global credit crunch on future profits or whether the firm's strategy in Asia is correct. Should you dare to take a lunch br

Why men and women argue differently

A no-holds barred office brawl could be a very good thing

Why don't people in offices have more fights? I don't mean the interminable biscuit wars where desk one won't share their jam tarts with desk two for reasons that are lost in the mists of time and understanding. I mean honest-to-goodness, stand-up blazing rows. You fight with your family, your partn

Pregnancy at work

Push and shove: ambition in the workplace

Why pets in the office can be a good thing

Pets in the office: four words that surely were never meant to be written together. Or so you'd think - but a growing number of businesses are coming round to the idea that having a furry friend at work can increase productivity while also helping staff to relax (unless, of course, you're allergic t

That is essentially what goes on at IBM, writes Ken Belson in the International Herald Tribune. Each of the 355,000 workers is entitled to three or more weeks of vacation.

For most people, it is an integral part of their working lives, providing a much-

How to look for a new job while still at your old job

But exactly how does one go about the subterfuge of a secret job interview? Read on ... ju

Dealing with conflict at work

It's that really horrid job-interview moment. "So why did you leave your last position?" What to say? "Because the people I sat next to were really horrible." It's certainly not the most impressive line you could give a would-be employer - but it might be the most honest.Accordin

E-mails with kisses

Perhaps the bizarre intimacy of strangers and colleagues in emails is symptomatic of a broader social malaise - namely we don't know how to begin, and, worse yet, we don't know how to end our emails. What's more, because email is such a casual means of communication, it privileges those who prize in

Work is never boring

Work has a bad reputation. Let's play a little game of word association. I say "work" and you say? Grey, boring, hard, boring, dull, boring, repetitive, boring, petty, boring, mind-numbing ... boring. Apart from the fact that you don't actually know the meaning of the word boring until you

What is your motivation?

But even if it's not a question to reflect on out loud, in public places, we should consider what motivates us at work.
