Cafeteria or break room
Move past it. You always have to factor in some deadweight on your team, and sometimes it’s more trouble than it’s worth to fight it out.
Eliminate the person. No time for nonsense.
Address the issue squarely and give the person a chance to correct the situation.
Yes, always or almost always. I’ll sacrifice my needs for others, even when I shouldn’t.
In some situations. I do whatever is best collectively for the good of the team and project. Sometimes that means tending to my needs, and sometimes it means catering to theirs.
Heck, no. Each person needs to pull their own weight.
Heavy coffee mug
I’m an open book, and that’s how it should be.
I like to play my cards close to the vest until I’ve fleshed out my ideas or made significant progress.
I mostly keep my work to myself. It’s not really their concern.
I like being in the loop with what’s going on with other people.
I'm a team player. I pull my own weight and also support others.
I take charge and get it done.
I focus on my tasks and let the others worry about theirs.
This is my nightmare. I’m not comfortable at all without enough information.
Bring it on. I’m super decisive, even without all the details.
I’m cautious. I’ll make a decision, but it might take me a while to weigh the pros and cons and figure out which way to go.
They’re usually calm, cool and collected.
Drama queens galore.
They don’t know what to do or are paralyzed with indecision.
Panic and chaos.
Organized and decisive
Aimless and lost
Couldn’t manage their way out of a paper bag
Strangers in the night. I know nothing about their personal lives, and they know nothing about mine.
We’ve exchanged pleasantries and know a few of the basics about each other.
I know more about them than they know about me.
They know more about me than I know about them.
We know each other fairly well on a personal basis.
Definitely. I wouldn’t even look back to see if they’re behind me.
Yes, I’m very physically fit.
Not sure. They look athletic.
No chance. I only run for cupcakes.
We mostly work independently.
We mostly work in small, departmental teams.
We mostly work in small, cross-functional teams.
We mostly work in lots of big, cross-functional teams.
Very well. Like peas and carrots!
Meh. We survive.
Lots of fighting. Everyone has separate agendas.
It’s chaos. One hand doesn’t know what the other is doing.
I’d rather get a root canal.
I could take it or leave it.
I like it – most of the time, anyway.
I love it! It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to be part of something bigger.
