Don’t expect your colleagues to be like you!

Of late, Rukmini has been getting frustrated at work. She feels that things are not moving as much as she wants; it is getting increasingly difficult to get any cooperation from colleagues within and outside her department. She made several attempts in recent times, but all in vain.

Being a passionate individual, Rukmini gets restless when others do not match her passion. She is also an aggressive individual, which may come across as imposing on others. She also finds others to be lethargic and at times casual in their approach and particularly gets annoyed when others do not acknowledge or reply to her mails. Out of anger, she shoots out another mail with a stinker.

Suresh also experiences similar feelings with colleagues. He considers himself to be organised; he prefers to have things in place, daily schedules well planned and projects well managed. However, he often finds himself ending up in delayed meetings, cancelled schedules, missed deadlines and endless excuses from colleagues. Suresh wonders why they cannot be organised.

colleagues not like you

As much he expresses his disappointment, others find him to be insensitive to their challenges; in some occasions, others even felt as if he was trying to expose them in front of others which resulted in ruptured relationships.

Why do you think Rukmini and Suresh are having a tough time? Both of them are well-intended professionals. Why are they not able to get through others? They both continue to wonder why others are not like them!

Keep tracking this space for the next part of this article which describes the problem of both Rukmini and Suresh.
