What to do? Col­leagues de­mand re­spect then say it’s not enough for them

7 Days in Dubai - - EVENTS -

I work in a high-paced en­vi­ron­ment, I am a part of a team. I know that com­mu­ni­ca­tion is the main thing a team needs to work to­gether. But the man­ager and su­per­vi­sors con­stantly com­plain, say­ing I don’t re­spect them. On the first day of my work I was yelled at by a su­per­vi­sor to call him “SIR” and he was so dis­ap­pointed with me for not call­ing him Sir. Since then, I know that ad­dress­ing their name, hurts their feel­ings. I call them ‘Sir’ and say ‘Please’ in each in­ter­ac­tion but it is never seems to be enough to them. Some­times they yell, “you don’t have to say both!” Now I don’t know how to work to­gether with the team, and mo­ti­vate them, de­velop pro­duc­tiv­ity but how to re­spond to th­ese peo­ple who de­mand re­spect and when you give them re­spect that is never enough. I some­times ask them to sit down and talk about the prob­lems but they avoid meet­ing. And I am afraid to ap­proach the man­ager. Con­fused UAE
