Conflict at work can be healthy—if done well. Exploring different viewpoints is essential to innovation, progress, and problem-solving. In this episode, Mary and Chris challenge each other to take completely opposite answers to listeners’ questions. It’s time to rumble.
Tune in to decide whose answers are best to:
Torn in Toronto has a colleague who is just plain rude, snarky, and snippy. They’re tired of being nice and only getting the cold shoulder. Should they tell him how they feel and see if he changes, or should they just return the rude behavior in kind?
The Goose is Loose in Vermont is struggling with a boss who is never prepared for meetings. The boss rambles on and never follows up on action items. What should they do?
A Bird in the Hand in Chicago is torn between staying in her current job or taking an offer that pays more money—but may not be as secure. Should she take the risky—but more high-paying job or stay where she is?
On the Rocks in Rochester has noticed that a regional VP comes to work with alcohol on his breath. Should they say something to him? Should they rat him out?
