Notice that the teacher clearly told the students what was expected. We are focused on what the curricula wants and forgetting that curricula is a series of complex conversations which need to happen between students and teachers.

Why Complaining Is Killing Your Reputation At Work

Why Complaining Is Killing Your Reputation At Work | Education | Scoop.it

In one of my first jobs out of school, at a tender 25 years old, I found myself at a firm with no career ladder and a particularly demoralizing, tyrannical boss. Every morning that I walked from my house to that job, I was wretchedly miserable. My one glimmer of happiness was a smart, funny peer—let’s call her Sarah—who became my instant friend. We were in the same unhappy boat, at a similar level in the organization, and I seized on our lunch breaks as prime opportunities to vent my gloom and misfortune with someone who I knew would understand.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 13, 2014 8:36 PM

Complaining is problematic, but is it really what others think about the complainer that is important. Actually, it might be that the complainer ends up focusing on the negative and ends up in a morass of non-productivity. I used to just go back to my classroom and do what I felt was best. It did not make any difference whether the School manager agreed or not. Once I said my piece, I had better things to do.

John Michel's curator insight, July 14, 2014 7:42 AM

Next time you feel the urge to reflexively complain, think through these common perceptions of workplace whiners (by non-whiners). They may just be the best deterrent when you have the need to gripe:

Debra Walker's curator insight, November 25, 2014 8:22 PM

Complaints should always be accompanied by suggestions for addressing them.  I never advocate suppressing ideas or different perspectives but having a perspective to share comes with a responsibility and a commitment to participate in making things stronger and more effective.
