So there is the work at work.
And then there is the behind the scenes people stuff that goes on.
And anyone who has been around the block long enough in organizations know that the people stuff is where all the “craziness” happens.
A friend told me a story about their colleague.
The colleague sends a trash-talking email about the person at work, but instead of sending it to the presumed audience they instead send to the person himself….oops.
So the veneer of “how your doing today?” and “hope you have a nice weekend!” is revealed by something else.
Email is generally a positive method of communication, but also can be treacherous and revealing.
No matter at work, the main thing is stay focused on the mission and not to get sidetracked by the zinger of the day.
