  • 7. You are Your Best Defense
    • Be ready to identify the preliminary jealousy signs.
    • Usually the person starts asking lots of questions… the more you answer the more they ask.
  • 8. Inappropriate Questions to Ask and to Be Asked (laying the jealousy foundation):
    • Any “How Much” questions
    • Or any questions that do not benefit the good of the whole.
      • What does your husband or wife do?
      • Where do you live?
      • What year did you finish college?
      • How much do you get paid?
    • Anything “Nosey”
  • 9. What is a Tactful Response to These Question?
    • Why do you ask?
    • General statement-
      • Example- What does your husband do?
        • “ He works in the city.” and be silent, and silent ..
  • 10. Why are People Jealous in the Workplace?
    • Struggling Under-Achievers
    • Low Self Esteem
    • Insecure
    • Feel threatened
    • Incompetent
    • Fear of Exposure of having a lack of knowledge
  • 11. In Order to be Successful We….
    • Must develop strategies to handle jealousy
      • Discover what the person is good at and praise them at their talent.
      • Acknowledge we cannot change others and regardless of what we do, it may not be enough
      • Must remain positive in the work place and picture ourselves as always being “on stage”
  • 12. How do we handle jealousy?
    • Off-set Jealousy with Modesty:
    • Discover who you can share your joys with and tell those persons, others will think we are bragging and would prefer to hear bad news anyway.
  • 13. Ways of Being Modest (makes being jealous harder)
    • Use your first name and not any titles when appropriate
    • Don’t take every advantage to show how intelligent you are.
    • Come across as a team player
      • Do not say: ”This was all my idea and if it weren’t for me..”
    • Empower others and lead as a transformational leader who wants other to exceed.
  • 14. In Conclusion….
    • Human Resources must recognize the existence of jealousy and envy in the work place and make fair, consistent, timely decisions.
