What Can You Do to Solve This?

 

 

Here’s a no-nonsense take on Handling Co-Worker Complaints and Backstabbing.  I like the first tip:  “Ask the complainer, ‘What can you do to solve this?'” Dan Rockwell goes on to offer simple suggestions, in a succinct post.  Read it.  I also love the “bonus tip”:   “When you bring the two parties together and one of them had no idea there was a problem, you’re dealing with a backstabber. Excuse the one who’s in the dark and deal with the real issue.”

 

Whatever you do, don’t ignore the issue.

 

What tips can you offer on dealing with complaints?
