Most jobs cannot be completed by only one person, which means having coworkers. The hard part about working so closely with someone daily is that they can really learn how to get under your skin.

When this occurs you can easily get stuck in a difficult person tango with your coworker leading the way to ineffective practices such as:

  • Inter-office gossiping, lying or backstabbing,
  • Disrespect, conflict and abuse,
  • Arguing and complaining,
  • Loss of communication,
  • Laziness or lack of contribution

Rather than getting stuck in a rut with a co-worker or colleague why not invest in a solution that helps your control your own emotional triggers leaving you calm, confident and ready to successfully handle the difficult person in your workplace.

Ideas, skills and solutions now available instantly! And whenever you need a reminder.
