Yelling

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about unpleasant climate: How do I cope with this until I find another job?

I work for a small office and all of the owners four of them are constantly yelling about each other and to other employees. The constant arguing, complaining, yelling and cursing make me very anxious and dread going to work every day. How do I cope with this until I find another job?

DearĀ Until:

You are wise to seek work elsewhere. It is unlikely that anything you might do could change the behavior of four owners who apparently have such a pattern as you describe. Can you survive until you find other employment? Yes, I predict you can. Can you not hate to go to work? Probably you will continue to wish you didn’t have to go, but the fact is that many people endure difficult working conditions; from hateful bosses and/or coworkers to unsanitary/unsafe environments.
