009_yob_andy_heroimageWe’ve retained the services of a talented – but confidential – expert on workplace politics. We’re calling him Andy, and each month we’ll ask her (or is it him?) how to handle an office situation that you may face one day. Send in your questions to dearandy@albertaventure.com

Dear Andy:
I think one of my co-workers is doing an awful job, and dragging the rest of the team down in the process. Do I tell my boss?

Andy says:
Only if you want to get labelled as the office snitch. Trust your superiors to see what you see – and if they don’t, maybe the problem isn’t as big or as bad as you think it is. And if it is, well, dust off that resume and get cracking on adding a new entry to it.

One Off

Having trouble with buttons falling off your dress shirts? Just apply a coat of clear nail polish to them. This keeps the threads from fraying, and eventually
breaking altogether. You’re welcome.
