Do you sometimes lay awake at night, or daydream on the job, about what to do and say to a co-worker about a recurring sticky situation? Here is a cheat sheet, of the right things to do and say, for when your colleague does the wrong thing.
What can I do about a colleague's perpetual lateness? Five to 10 minutes after the start of our weekly meetings he waltzes in and usually says something like: "What did I miss?" This is more than an annoyance. It is disruptive and unproductive. And frankly, I feel that it is very disrespectful of my time and me. Help!
