Dear Dawn… Week 7 – Very Sorry

Dear Dawn… Week 7 – Very Sorry

The Gulf Business agony aunt is back to answer the seventh professional query in the series.

Dawn is back once more to answer your work-related problems, and this week the question is:

Dear Dawn,

I recently made an ill-advised (and quite mean) comment to a colleague behind another colleague’s back. She got to hear about it and now things are strained in the very small office I share with her. How can I make things better?


Really sorry

What are your thoughts on the subject? What should ‘Very sorry’ do to repair the damage caused by their comments?

We await your feedback and hope to initiate a debate with you.
