  • HOW TO DEAL WITH D IFF ICULT COWORKERS

    BY GEOFFREY BYRUCH

  • AT SOME STAGE OF YOUR CAREER, YOU WILL MORE THAN L IKELY RUN INTO A CO-WORKER OR MANAGER THAT YOU

    WILL NOT EXACTLY SEE EYE -TO -EYE WITH.

  • AS FRUSTRATING AS IT MAY BE , IT IS ABSOLUTELY V ITAL THAT YOU KEEP CALM AND RELAX ABOUT THE OVERALL S ITUATION.

  • NOTHING MORE CAN BE DONE TO EXACERBATE A TENSE RELATIONSHIP, BUT THERE ARE A FEW TECHNIQUES YOU CAN UTIL IZE TO HELP ALLEVIATE OR D IFFUSE D IFF ICULT C IRCUMSTANCES IN THE MOST AMICABLE WAY POSSIBLE .

  • TO START, MANY TENSE S ITUATIONS ARISE BECAUSE THERE IS A MISCOMMUNICATION

    BETWEEN YOU AND THE OTHER PERSON.

  • I HAVE SEEN THESE COUNTLESS T IMES WHERE A COWORKER AND I COULD NOT AGREE UPON VARIOUS

    DECIS IONS FOR A SPECIF IC PROJECT.

  • WHILE PERSONALITY DOES PLAY A LARGE ROLE WITHIN THESE PARTICULAR S ITUATIONS, IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU OVERCOME YOUR PRIDE AND EGO AND UNDERSTAND THEIR PERSPECTIVE AND

    MINDSET ON THE MATTER.

  • START BY PROACTIVELY L ISTENING .

  • ONCE YOU HAVE DONE THAT, OPEN UP A D ISCUSSION ON EXPECTATIONS AND STRATEGY.

  • THIS TYPE OF OPENED D ISCUSSION CAN HELP CLARIFY WHAT YOU AND YOUR COWORKERS CAN DO ON A DAY-TO -DAY

    BASIS .

  • LAST BUT NOT LEAST, BE SURE TO TAKE RESPONSIB IL ITY FOR ANY TYPE OF MISCOMMUNICATION THAT WAS YOUR

    OWN FAULT.

  • I F YOU F IND THAT THE ANIMOSITY IS NOT BASED ON MISCOMMUNICATION, BUT PERSONALITY, THEN IT MAY BE YOUR BEST BET TO TRY AND

    AVOID THAT PERSON WITHIN YOUR DAY-TO-DAY.

  • NOW I KNOW WHAT MANY OF YOU ARE THINKING: WE WORK ON A TEAM OR I HAVE TO WORK WITH THIS PERSON D IRECTLY.

  • AS D IFF ICULT AS IT MAY SEEM, THERE IS ALWAYS WAYS IN WHICH YOU CAN EASILY AVOID THE S ITUATION SUCH AS

    PLANNING YOUR DAY AROUND THEM.

  • I F YOU F IND THIS TO BE TOO TAXING , YOU COULD POSSIBLE BRING YOUR PROBLEM UP TO A MANAGER OR SOMEONE IN HUMAN

    RESOURCES TO HELP F IND YOU THAT MUCH NEEDED SUPPORT.

  • NOW THE LAST B IT OF ADVICE I CAN GIVE YOU IS FOR YOU TO CHANGE

    YOUR PERSONALITY.

  • UNLESS YOU ARE COMPLETELY A WARE OF WHAT YOU SAY AND HOW YOU ACT EVERYDAY, YOU ARE MORE THAN L IKELY

    OVERLOOK YOUR OWN PROFESSIONAL BEHAVIOR.

  • TO HELP WITH THIS , START BY TREATING PEOPLE WITH RESPECT.

  • EVEN IF YOUR ASSOCIATE ISN T IN THE SAME F IELD OR JOB DESCRIPTION AS YOU, HAVING THAT LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS

    CAN EARN YOU MORE ADMIRATION THAN STRESS .
