The majority of working adults spend a considerable part of their week in the office. As with any space in which you’re forced to spend so much time, irritations and annoyances become magnified, according to recent data from LinkedIn, reports payscale.com.
A recent survey from LinkedIn indicates that there are many things that drive us “up the cubicle wall”, the top three of which are;
- People not taking ownership for their actions: This one is particularly sad, because by dodging responsibility, these folks are cutting themselves out of an opportunity to be seen as leaders.
- Constant complainers: It's easy to fall into doing this pet peeve. After all, where does venting stop and complaining begin? Partly, the line of demarcation is when you start complaining too much about the office, while you're still in the office. Save the griping for after work or conversations with friends who aren't also co-workers.
- Dirty common areas: As the expression goes, your mother doesn't work here. (And even if she did, we'd like to think she'd make you clean up your own mess.) Not picking up after yourself at work is a great way to tell your co-workers that you don't care about how your actions affect them. That's not the message you want to send, when your professional success and happiness depends on getting along with your team.
