The Reality of Fiery Creatures

Work dominates a huge portion of our lives. Just think about how much time you spend there. It can, at times, become overwhelming and serve as a source of negative feelings. Our tasks and interactions can become a source of anxiety and frustration. We can even find ourselves staring down “office dragons.” Just like with any mythical creature, office dragons can take many different shapes. Our leaders, co-workers, and even ourselves can become a dragon. How does that happen? Dragons are formed from:

  • Lack of direction and clarity
  • Demonstrations of favoritism
  • Constant procrastination
  • Not delivering on part of the job
  • Being guilty of gossiping
  • A lack of self-confidence and assertiveness

The Solution: Fighting Office Dragons

Dragons can be intimidating and make us feel like the best option is to run away. Unfortunately, that just doesn’t work. When we run away or try to ignore the problem, we tend to create more problems. We end up feeling down about ourselves, and we even inadvertently give more power to the dragon. Know this: Office dragons can be defeated.

That’s right. Office dragons can be conquered if you understand how to approach them with the right attitude and mindset. In fact, you will probably even discover that the dragon isn’t really as scary as it once seemed. You’ll have gained a new understanding for the root cause of its behavior and know how to work with, not against it.
