Every workplace has them: whirlers and swirlers. You know the type. They are unable to keep their noses out of other people’s business and they repeatedly turn things topsy-turvy. So how do you deal with a whirler and swirler?
Let me introduce you to Rose.
Remember that saying Everything I need to know I learned in kindergarten? Well, for Rose — a viral sensation thanks to a YouTube video — everything she needs to know, she learned when she was two years old. Just listen to this exchange she had with her dad:
So, what Rose knows at two, we would all do well to remember in the workplace when a whirler and swirler wreaks havoc: I have my job, you have your job. If we all keep focused on our own tasks, others will get the message. This doesn’t mean being self-centered or unsympathetic, but it does mean understanding your role and avoiding getting swept up in other people’s drama.
So, can you channel your inner Rose and worry about yourself?
