Obviously it is not that easy. Because every one of us always happens big and small embarrassments, whether we want to sink into the next hole. Me too - for example, that I just make it back on an important date but smooth, aplze on my clothes to aplizieren.

Crack point clothes


Apparently, clothing is the sticking point for many people - even if you do not accidentally walk around in a tunic. Personnel service provider OfficeTeam asked 1.300 managers in the US and Canada about their most embarrassing moments in their professional lives.

And most of them say that their own wardrobe is already a disaster: the speaker with an open trouser slit is in front of a big audience, his own shirt is accidentally worn on the left or you notice in the office that you have two different shoes or even the Slippers on.

Laughing fits and wrong ones eMails


But other examples also show how quickly a situation can become unpleasant: That would be laughing fits in meetings, colleagues about a colleague or the Chef blasphemers standing right behind them, personal mails that accidentally reach the wrong addressee or job placements that are sent to the wrong job applicant.

Also happens quickly: In the morning in the hustle and bustle with a wrong buttoned shirt go to work, get hiccup in a meeting due to excitement in a meeting or accidentally locked in the office.

Embarrassments on the net


Incidentally, in the age of social media such embarrassments have happened much faster - just think of how quickly you've just cut out the wrong tweet. Recently, someone tweeted, "Social media proves one thing: we're all just human beings." And one acquaintance remarked: "It is human."

The famous Streisand effect shows that it is fatal to want to iron out such misfortunes at any price. This is why they often attract more interest and make themselves ridiculous. Better: Just standing, working or laughing.

Five tips for dealing with embarrassments:


  • To remain calm: In an embarrassing situation everyone would understandably want to run away. But it is better to remain calm, breathe through and then simply continue.
  • To this end: Everyone has already happened a misfortune. Anyone who recognizes their own situation at an early stage, should take it with humor and, if possible, defuse the situation with an amusing sentence. This makes it easier for the colleagues to go to the agenda more easily.
  • Show humor: It is best to carry the thing with humor, not to take yourself so seriously and to move to the agenda. Embarrassing slip-ups show that the colleague is only human. That's nice.
  • Apologize: Whether blasphemed by a colleague who hears this, or a personal mail is sent to the wrong addressee - in both cases an apology is necessary.
  • Keep working: No matter how uncomfortable the situation is, it's best not to talk about it for long. The faster the matter is over, the faster it is forgotten by others. Incidentally, and especially for the Internet.
