It's ubiquitous - you can find it everywhere you look - and it can be found all across the spectrum from painfully obvious to almost imperceptible. And it exists in all organizations, every sector and every level of the organization. The condition is workplace drama. Once drama gets started, its virulent and insidious, its tentacles reach into every area of organizational life. It can be found in team, staff and exec. meetings, in the lunchroom, at one-on-one meetings, intra-departmentally, with customers and vendors - literally everywhere. There is a remedy - create a drama-free organizational culture. Step one is recognizing where drama lives and all the forms it takes. Drama can only thrive where there is agreement from 2 or more people for the drama to continue. When people know how to decline invitations to participate, the drama dies. Understanding the roles people play in drama is important as well. There are three very distinct roles and actions that go along with each of those roles. When people learn to recognize when someone is playing a role, and inviting others into the drama, they can decline those invitations and the drama doesn't get the oxygen it needs to continue to burn.
