Our department doesn't work as a team. Some team members are rude and disrespectful, and the work environment is so hostile I dread each day. Help!
—Ready to Leave

Dear Ready to Leave,

No one should work in this type of environment. It's very difficult, if not impossible, to change others' personalities. However, the workplace can—and should—require certain behavior from all staff members. It's time you speak to your manager or owner.

You need to discuss the hostile behaviors that are causing problems privately. If the owner or manager can't or won't require behavior changes, your best option may be to find a more enjoyable place to work. Everyone deserves to pursue happiness—and sometimes you just can't find that utopia where you are.
