Unhealthy Competition At Work: A Manager's Role
As a manager, you will understand the importance of your team working well together.But what happens when you find that there is unhealthy competition amongst your team?
Dealing With Unhealthy Competition at Work
In the workplace, all of us are encouraged to be professional about giving and receiving feedback, and to be gracious when someone else is receiving an award. In the face of competition, there are going to be times when conflicts can arise among colleagues, which can end up getting out of hand. Conflicts at work can arise for a number of reasons.
Emotional Outbursts in the Workplace
We have all heard of road rage and perhaps experienced it at some point in our lives. Just like in traffic, life in office can get hectic and cause us to have a case of desk rage.
More Than A Colleague
Nowadays men and women are working side by side, thus providing much more opportunity for extra-marital affairs to occur. Even people who have a good marriage and value monogamy may find themselves in an affair if they do not uphold strong boundaries with work colleagues.

LGBT - Inclusion at the Workplace
The world of work in recent times is choosing to embrace a culture of Inclusion. Contrary to earlier times, most organizations in India are committed to promoting an inclusive environment for all regardless of age, gender or sexual orientation. There is an atmosphere of greater openness and acceptance of LGBT people which in turn has led to more individuals deciding to “come out” and talk about their sexual orientation at the workplace. As colleagues or managers, it is important for us to be aware of our own attitudes and reactions towards this and ensure that an environment of acceptance is provided.
Preventing Sexual Harassment : A Manager's Role
Managers can do a lot to create work environments where sexual harassment will be less likely to occur. With preventive measures in place managers have the opportunity to address potential harassment before a situation escalates.
Shyness in the Workplace
When shyness is properly managed, there is no limit to the achievement of shy people in the business world. Even the Microsoft co-founder, Paul Allen, one of the world's richest and most successful people in the world, is a shy person. What do shy people who succeed professionally have in common? They are in control of their shyness instead of it controlling them!
Giving negative feedback is dreaded in the personal and professional contexts. Lack of sensitivity and skills in giving constructive feedback can result in feelings of dissatisfaction, unhappiness, resentment, and/or discouragement, none of which serve the purpose for which feedback is intended.
Wishing For A Perfect Boss?
Who is a perfect boss: the one who is cheerful, professional, experienced and fair. But in reality this does not exist. Building a productive working relationship with the existing imperfect boss is a more practical solution.
