Frustrations at work get communicated in a variety of ways. Ideally, it should be through a compassionate conversation, but this isn’t always the case! When employees are showing up to team meetings with frowny faces and crossed arms, they’re communicating a real “problem” scenario up to all of their managers—and to their fellow team members.
So what’s really going on? Do these employees realize the implications of their behavior, or is everything just a misunderstanding? When managers remember to practice patience with these scenarios, everyone can start working better.
