For some of us, pet peeves or complaints regarding co-workers have been diminished or taken away by COVID-19 and remote work. But the new remote realm has created more ways in which others get under our skin, even from a distance. Career expert Rhymer Rigby shares more on the quibbles we have with colleagues and how to resolve them in the first of a multipart podcast conversation.

What you’ll learn from this episode:

  • Some common pet peeves about co-workers that remote work has temporarily solved.
  • Rigby’s advice for dealing with a colleague who takes credit for others’ work.
  • How a line manager should approach a direct report who circumvents the manager’s authority.
  • Why in Rigby’s mind some people “hide” from talking by phone.
  • One of Rigby’s pet peeves about phone calls, which he first mentioned during a summer conversation about work amidst the pandemic.
