What is Tolerated?

A key question in workplaces is "What is tolerated?"

If negative behavior is tolerated, you can expect to see more of it for there is a fine line between "tolerated" and "encouraged."

A few examples to be on the alert for: Gossiping, forming factions, frequently using sarcasm, being insubordinate, badmouthing others, shunning people, being arrogant, being cruel, being willfully ignorant, failing to take initiative, manipulating, lying, conspiring, whining, withholding information, following the letter but not the spirit of rules, playing favorites, harassing, and engaging in turf wars.
