When you’re at a team meeting, don’t use your time to bitch and complain. If you’re going to ask a question, wait for someone to answer it—don’t start immediately yammering about your problems if you don’t have any useful suggestions to offer in return.
Slowly count to three after bringing up an issue and wait for a response—after all, you’re there to resolve company matters as a team, not let off steam by whining. When other employees are complaining, the last thing you want to do is jump on the bitch bandwagon; instead, offer advice and solutions.
And if you can’t keep your mouth shut and just have to vent, it’s best you don’t say anything at all.
