Before You Submit Your Question…….

Ask the Workplace Doctors is a FREE resource to help you find solutions to workplace communication problems. If you are thinking about submitting a question, the following information may be useful to you:

1. You may find the answer to your question in our archive of over 3,000 questions and responses. Look for the general category, on the right, then scan the Q & A’s.

2. Your name and email will not appear in our posted answer. An immediate response will be sent you via your email as soon as possible–usually within two days. If you scan our recent posted Q&A and Archives, you will see that all submitted questions are anonymous.

3. Our expertise is workplace communication, not legal or medical. We list sites to which you might submit legal and medical questions.

4. We also are not romantic advisers, unless the situation is having an effect on others in the office. We realize infatuations and affairs can have a tremendous effect on those involved, but you will receive better advice by talking to someone to whom you can fully explain the situation, preferably in person.

5. We do not promise or claim our advice is the only or best you might get elsewhere, and we suggest that in addition to what we advise that you consult other sources.

6. Our advice will be better if you provide background information about the nature of your job, relationship with your boss and coworkers, and incidents that prompt you to submit a question.

7.  A NEW FEATURE: “Good Feeling Workplace Moments!” Use our Question form to tell us about something at work that made you and/or the entire work team feel better. (Working together successfully, someone helping you or you helping them, making a difficult decision, helping a client or customer, or other feel-good moments.)

8. Several LinkedIn posts address the kind of advice we give, such as
