How To React When Your Boss IMs You

Don’t panic. We’ll get through this.

1. Sit down at your desk feeling pretty good about your day, when suddenly you get an IM…

3. Oh shit…

6. Nope. Just you. OK, OK, OK… Don’t panic. Just think. How do we respond? THINK!

8. Wait… Stay calm. Have you done anything wrong lately?

9. Maybe it’s nothing. Maybe he wants to congratulate you for something. Play it cool…

11. Good. That feels calm and collected. Perfect response…
