Don’t Rob the Workplace of TrustA tattletale quickly destroys team morale and brings about increased conflict in the workplace. In successful organizations, team members set high expectations for one another and push each other to work smarter. When you do complain to your boss, you do not want to raise anything that may seem trivial or vindictive.
If you observe an incident that might constitute a breach of ethics or is significant enough to affect your team, you have every right to blow the whistle through the established channels even at the risk of being branded a tattletale.
The standards of decency require you to talk directly to anybody who offends you before going to your boss. If a peer persistently interferes with your work or sabotages your projects, you should privately warn the offender that if it happens again, you would report it to your boss.
Wisdom Comes from Knowing What to OverlookControl the impulse to be worked up and tattletale on issues that have little to do with your own work. Let your resentment subside.
Be quiet and keep your head down and just worry about YOU-
