When we go to work, we expect to do the job that we have been assigned to. It is usually pretty straightforward. Your boss gives you a list of tasks to complete and you do them. It’s a professional environment where you know what’s going to happen before it does.
But what happens when people in the office behave in unexpected ways? It could be any number of things that either you, your coworkers, or your customers just didn’t expect to see when they came into your place of work. Here are some examples that we talked about at No Boundaries – Train for Work, Train for Life this week:
- Your boss coming into your workspace to give you a new assignment to complete.
- You show up to work and your supervisor isn’t there to tell you what to do.
- You remember something funny and we laugh out loud while talking to your boss.
- Someone gets fired and they get really, really angry while they’re packing up their belongings.
What are some unexpected behaviors you’ve seen in your personal experiences? What did you do in response?
