Window Drama

A client, let's call her Susie, emailed to lament about the "window drama" evolving in her workplace. Please don't worry as you read this; we are working on finding her a position in a more collegial workplace!

One staff demands closed window blinds, citing "health issues." Other staff would prefer open blinds as they feel that the sun energizes them. The supervisor is loathe to handle this issue. The result? Can we say an unproductive, unpleasant and thoroughly uninspiring workplace culture?

It is said that people rarely leave a "job"; they leave a "supervisor." I'd be interested to hear your thoughts. Feel free to share.
