Working With People You Don’t Like

5 Aug

No matter who you are or where you work, there will be a time when you have to work with, or do business with, someone you don’t like. This person may be a client, a consultant, a colleague, or your boss.

Start by thinking about why you don’t like this person. What does he or she do, specifically, that irritates you?

It’s possible that the negative or annoying behavior reminds you of a specific trait that you have yourself and that you don’t like.

This person might have several character traits that you dislike. But, chances are, he or she also has many positive attributes. What are they? What behaviors or personality traits do you like or relate to?

You can reduce these feelings by changing the way that you react to tense situations. Learn how to manage your emotions  so that you can respond with assertiveness and dignity in tough situations.

If you have a negative interaction with someone, take immediate steps to calm down: walk away or practice deep breathing exercises  Also, make sure that you don’t let your negative mood affect how you treat others.
