ARE YOU IN A WAR ZONE ... WHILE WORKING?


By Vernalee

Many viewers tuned in for years on Thursday’s nights to watch Kerry Washington in her role as Scandal’s star, Olivia Pope, a crisis management expert to the President and high profiled individuals. However, some of us need not wait to see the weekly series now in re-runs, when we can get a daily snapshot of scandalous activities in our respective workplaces! The intriguing/ inappropriate accompaniments – lies, harassment, innuendos – are included in the roundup that we call standard office conduct. How about that! If shouting matches, humiliating comments, degradation of coworkers, abuse, sabotage of material, discrediting others’ professional character, intellectual gymnastics to prove who is the smartest …. describe your office environment, you can perhaps identify with several of the above imaged post it notes (scandals, rumors, lies, enemies, spying, backstabbing…..). Unbelievable, isn’t it? If your office environment can put the successful “Scandal” to shame, send your information to its creator, Shonda Rhimes. It may become her next blockbuster television series! You then will “be in the money” and out of your scandalous office!

The verdict is out as to how much of this conduct regularly displayed in our physical office environment

will transcend through the airwaves to our virtual offices. We hope that it stays where it is. But as the clock ticks, we’ll see!
