I'm in a medium-sized slightly struggling financial institution. I've got a pb with a guy (reports to one of my peers) who is consistently rude and offensive to just about anyone. This defeats just about every attempt at teamworking. Several people have reported it to HR and many have made formal complaints to his manager, who protects him because of results - he's a smart kid, who's more effective than many of his peers.
The senior's reluctance to deal with it is dragging us all down...are we boxed in by our weak business situation which sets the dept. mood? How can I articulate to management the idea that we'll only improve if we get this obstacle to teamwork fixed?
I love this forum and would really value your thoughts...thanks.
