One lovely thing about a new year is that sense of a fresh start and an open calendar. Of course, that calendar tends to fill up pretty quickly with work and travel commitments. One way to make sure you’re factoring…
But the bad news here is that you can’t change someone else’s behavior. If they are miserable and resentful, they are probably having a much worse day than you are. Instead of worrying about what you or the company can do to make them feel better, ask them how they can make the situation better for themselves? Pointing out that they seem unhappy and helping them figure out what’s within their power to change may get you somewhere. But since motivation is intrinsic it may not. Then you need to look at other options.
