S3 | E11: How Do You Keep From Killing Your Coworkers?

“He/She is so annoying! I can’t work with them anymore!”

-The thought that ran through your head earlier today

Some coworkers are great, others we have trouble getting along with. In this episode, we sit down with two sisters who started Myth Lab Entertainment, an entertainment platform, together, Kyra and Kozi Kyles. The Kyles sisters lived together for many years, and have worked together for many years. Martin and Rajiv have worked together for many years as well, and collectively we have a Festivus-like Airing of Grievances.

We explore:

+Managing a difference in work styles

+Recognizing each other’s strengths and weaknesses

+Agreeing on deadlines, and sticking to them

+What different facial expressions are really conveying

+Why you need to work with people who don’t have the same skills as you

 +What happens when you have too many cooks in the kitchen

+Having other people check your work

+Getting stuck in your own world

+Holding back from jumping to conclusions about your coworker

+You don’t have to do everything yourself

+How Perfectionists can take a step back

+How personality tests can help you understand yourself and your coworkers better.

+Learning the approach that your coworkers take, and how that differs from your own

+Acknowledging that other people are better than you at certain things

+Asking your coworkers what you do that annoys them

+What Martin and Raj find annoying about each other, and Kyra and Kozi find annoying about each other

+Knowing expectations and goals before beginning a project.

+Recognizing the tendencies you and your coworkers exhibit when you are feeling a certain way

+Using performance reviews to actually improve

+It’s on you to make your own ideas happen

+Knowing the difference between who you surround yourself with, and who you see yourself as
