Listen In -> Awkward Communication #4: The Nagger

Is there anything more annoying than a supervisor that doesn’t trust you? They hover over your shoulders, check in repeatedly, and ask petty follow-up questions so often that there’s hardly time to act upon the previous interruption.

We call this person the nagger.

Maybe this person is you!

The problem is different depending who on the team is the nagger.

When you are the nagger, you would be well-advised to take another look at its “effectiveness” as a communication approach.

When your boss or someone else on the team is the nagger, then you have to explore what drives their need to nag. Once you understand where they’re coming from, you’ll be better positioned to communicate why it doesn’t work with you.

Listen in. (Before you go crazy!)
