If you see yourself in any of these, it’s time to take a self-inflicted demotion! These are Chiefs NO ONE wants to deal with:
CWO – Chief Whining Officer All good things happen to everyone but you. Everyone has a better job, a better boss, a better cubicle, better pay, better perks, blah, blah, blah.
CNO – Chief Negatron Officer You’re the self-designated dissenter, the perpetual fly in the ointment, always pointing out why it can’t be done – never how it can be done.
CSO – Chief Stress Officer Your boss stresses you out. Her boss stresses you out. Your coworker stresses you out. Your job stresses you out. You couldn’t be creating your own workplace stress, could you?
CBO – Chief Blame Officer Something goes wrong, it’s everyone’s fault but yours, and you’re sure to be the one covering your ass, pointing the finger, heading the witch hunt.
CVO – Chief Victim Officer You have an abusive boss. The head of HR or IT hates you. Your peer makes life miserable for you. They’re all driving you nuts. Maybe you’re the one behind the wheel.
CDO – Chief Disruptive Officer Always acting out or trying to get attention, the drama queen, disrupting meetings and making everything about you. It’s always about you.
CPO – Chief Political Officer The player, manipulator, man behind the curtain, puppet-master, destroyer of enemies. Too bad politics doesn’t win business or keep customers.
CCO – Chief Clueless Officer Always running around like a chicken with your head cut off, asking everybody and his brother for help, never having a clue what to do, how to do it, or even how to start.
CUO – Chief Unreliable Officer When there’s work to be done, finding you is like shooting darts at jello. And when you do get tagged with a task, the only thing we can count on is that it won’t be done right.
CGO – Chief “Grass is Greener” Officer Your friend works for a better company or a better group. Everything is better there. Everything about this place sucks. Well, it would suck a lot less if you quit.
