Types of Coworkers The workplace environment varies tremendously among all settings because of the different personalities and behaviors of all the coworkers. Employee behavior determines how employers and fellow coworkers communicate in the workplace. Once one identifies these certain personalities it is easier to learn how to effectively work alongside them. Problematic coworkers can be most commonly classified as the suck up, the slacker, or the complainer. To start off, the most agitating coworker is the suck up. These coworkers are constantly demanding attention from the boss. Making friendships with the higher ups for the purpose of getting a good reference or a promotion is their top priority and they do not seem to care what their coworkers think. In other words, this coworker is always trying to remind the boss how wonderful he or she is even if it is at the expense of others. They will not hesitate to throw a coworker under the bus in order to make themselves look good. They are constantly around the boss trying to develop a strong relationship with them and even do extra work to stand out over their coworkers. Coworkers often get angry with them because they are too busy trying to impress the boss and not doing their part. The suck up causes many disruptions in the workplace by demanding the boss’ attention all the time and not being a team player. In contrast, we have the slacker coworker who is just there to make money and does not care about anything else. You never see this person working hard. They are the experts at working hard to get absolutely nothing done. They are perfectly content with everyone else doing all the work but showing up to take the credit themselves. They never get their work done on time and get someone else to finish it up for them by using their charm. These coworkers are also the last ones to show up to work and the first ones to leave. This coworker creates imbalance in the workplace, not getting his or her work done
Characteristics of a Coworker
Over the years I have been lucky enough to work for several different firms and, in that time, have had many coworkers with varying degrees of mannerisms and characteristics. My colleague’s personalities ranged from extrovert to introvert, egotistical to insecure, logical to irrational, personable to detached, and so on. I feel that working alongside this assortment of personalities has given me insight into which characteristics are important to being a great coworker. Some….
For my familiar place observation, I decided to spend the day observing my coworkers and my work surroundings. I work at a coating shop in the quality office I have a window facing out into the shop making it easy for me to watch my surroundings. I spend forty hours a week at work and with my coworkers but I never stopped to look around and observe my surrounding while I’m there. My observations took place on November 15th, 2017 from 7:00am to 3:30pm I was stunned at some of the behavior, rules,….
in addition to their own. On the other hand, he felt he was entitled to take his earned time and additional time off without pay. Was he right?
He is taking advantage of the company and his coworkers. This is wrong in my book; he doing this is creating a domino affect within the company. Other coworkers notice and feel it isn’t fair or that it isn’t right and would want to slack off just like him. Hence taking advantage of the company, taking time without pay is not always something frowned upon….

discovered an interesting things I did not know about him after working with him for the past 2 years. It is very interesting how we all have something one doesn’t know and without speaking to each other you will never find out. As I interview my coworker today I discovered that he was a football player for about 15 years of his life. As he grew old in life he played football all along the way. My colleague began playing football at the age of 10 until he was about 25. He told me his dream was to….

contingency theory to measure a person's leadership style. For example, it measures your style by having you describe a coworker with whom you had difficulty completing a job. This does not need to be a co-worker you disliked a great deal, but rather someone with whom you least like to work. After you have selected this individual, the LPC instrument asks you to describe your coworker on 18 sets of adjectives.
Low LPCs are task motivated. They are individuals whose primary needs are to accomplish tasks….
Think about your coworkers. Who is the first one to come to mind? Is it the kind person who always covers your shift when you’re sick, or the irritating one who never does their job? Whether positive or negative, you likely have a much stronger relationship with or opinion about that person than you would if you didn’t work with them. The same is true for many coworkers, even in sitcoms. Through its depiction of the interactions between very different people, Scrubs shows that working together leads….
