Did you ever wish a coworker would stop interrupting you? Or that your boss would stop visiting your desk at 4:45p on Fridays? Begin to influence change by first accepting the things you cannot change. Then look inward to find the change in yourself. If you want them to change their behavior, change your behavior.
How do you react when you are interrupted? Do you say nothing? Let it go? Or do you wait until you are no longer emotional and ask your coworkers to be polite. This gives you license to bring it to their attention the next time it happens. If we want change in others, we start by changing ourselves. If you are leading change (who isn’t these days?) then be a role model and change. Lead On!
