Tool for the Day--Co-workers Serenity Prayer

Put items in the appropriate column--actions that you believe your co-worker can change, and actions or attributes that they probably cannot change. Once completed, you may seek to speak with your co-worker about the items in column 1 and work on accepting the items in column 2.
