In the last month or so, I have found my self thinking a lot of unhealthy thoughts at the work place. The retail world has become so competitive, fast paste and stress levels are at an all time high. I have found my self saying curse words at my coworkers ( not out load of course) who work at a very slow paste. I feel like I have become a drill sargeant and I have lost the passion I once had for my coworkers. My manager is receiving a lot of pressure (called accountability) from her manager and is passing it down to us (section managers and leads) and I have passed it on to my coworkers. The cycle need to be broken, but I have not found the solution. The right thing to do, would be to empower the slow folks and teach them sratergies to be more productive. But there is not enough time in an eight hour shift.
