Plenty of problems get on your nerves at work, but trying to fight every one of them will leave you exhausted and your colleagues thinking you’re a pain. Harvard Business Review’s Amy Gallo suggests these tips for choosing your workplace battles wisely.
- Stick to issues that are important to the organization and affect productivity, quality of work or ethical issues.
- Present a solution. You’ll just look like a whiner if you bring up a problem without also suggesting a solution—or at least a plan for coming up with a solution.
- Consult trusted colleagues. People you trust will give you a good idea if the problem that’s bugging you is worth bringing up.
