My colleague makes everything an emergency (and the team can’t deal)
I have a great coworker, except for when he makes his job to wage an urgent war for our team’s attention. His email subject lines read “URGENT” and “PLEASE READ” — and if not all caps, includes exclamation points.
I truly think he feels his priorities supersedes my priorities. It’s a time-draining nuisance.. and I’m not sure how to stop this? He means so we’ll but it looks bad on his end and I think it adds unnecessary anxiety to those he’s contacting. I’d love to let him know in a way that doesn’t make him feel bad or make it feel weird in the future. Any thoughts?
