Do’s & Don’ts of Working in a Cube

on Wed, 12/23/2015 - 18:12

Ah, where would the American workforce be without the dreaded grey paneled, four-foot high cubicle. While many offices have re-embraced the open workspace where it’s every man (and woman) for himself as they grab a seat at a long table or sit in a lounge chair to hunker down to work, not to mention the growing phenomenon of working via a home space, still many employees report to work where they are relegated to working in a cube.

Molehills, Mountains and Miscommunication in the Workplace

I love sayings and quotes by the unknown author. Seems like unknown really knows their stuff.  One of my favorite unknown quotes is, ‘Don’t make mountains out of molehills’.  Another quote by an unknown author that expands on the mountain-molehill quote is, ‘A single moment of misunderstanding is so poisonous, that it makes us forget the hundred loveable moments spent together within a minute’.  Misunderstandings at work are unavoidable but there are things that we can do to prevent our molehill sized misunderstandings from becoming mountains we have to climb to communicate with one another.
