Sticky Notes: Make Sure You Are Not the Jerk at Work!

If you blame others and make excuses when things go wrong, rather than immediately focusing on your role in the problem and what you can do to contribute to the solution, then you arre acting like a jerk at work. 

You know you are acting like a jerk at work if you:

  • Approach relationships from the vantage point of what you want or need from others, rather than what YOU have to offer the other person.
  • Blame others and make excuses when things go wrong, rather than immediately focusing on your role in the problem and what you can do to contribute to the solution.
  • Take yourself seriously, but don’t always take your obligations seriously.
  • Tease others or call them names.
  • Interrupt or don’t pay close attention when others are speaking.
  • Make negative personal observations about individuals or their work.
  • Hold strong opinions about important factors in your working relationship with others, but never articulate your thoughts in a constructive manner.
  • Focus on the negative aspects of situations without volunteering to help make things better.
  • Deny, steal, or begrudge credit for the success of others.
  • Lose your temper and raise your voice, even if you are only “talking to yourself.” If this is you, knock it off!
