It’s just 1 apple

Never let a bad apple ruin the bunch.

How many of us heard the phrase or still use it?

I use it many times when working with moms who have a colleague that they don’t get along with.

She gets caught up in the drama of that poor relationship and projects those feelings on the whole company.

But maybe that colleague is just “the bad apple?”

Maybe there are great colleagues on your team or a different department that really exhibit the company’s core values and culture?

I encourage you that before you “write off” that bad bunch of apples:

Consider what would happen if you just removed that one apple.

Or if you can’t remove it, at least limit your interactions or exposure.

Let me know.

Have you ever dealt with a bad apple colleague?

What did you do to make the situation better?
