Handling Annoying Coworkers Strategy 01 – Keep your cool Benefit: maintain self-control. Avoid escalation of problem. How: We need to keep our composure; the less reactive we are, the better we can handle the situation.

Handling Annoying Coworkers Strategy 02 – Fly like an eagle Benefit: more peace of mind and we can reduce the risk of friction. How: Remember that your time is valuable, don’t waste it by trying to change or convince a person.
  8. 8. The point is to remind yourself that people do what they do because of their own issues and life problems. They have a problem not you! Handling Annoying Coworkers Strategy 03 – Shift from being reactive to proactive Benefit: Concentrate energy on problem-solving. How: When you feel offended by someone’s words, come up with multiple ways of viewing the situation before reacting.
  9. 9. When appropriately used, humor can shine light on the truth, disarm difficult behavior, and show that you have superior composure. Handling Annoying Coworkers Strategy 04 – Use appropriate humor Benefit: Humor is a powerful communication tool. How: Disarm unreasonable and difficult behavior with detachment.
  10. 10. Studies show that many bullies are victims of violence themselves, when confronting bullies, be sure to place yourself in a safe position. Handling Annoying Coworkers Strategy 05 – Face office bullies Benefit: reduce harmful behavior, increasing confidence and peace of mind. How: Bullies pick on those whom they perceive as weaker, so as long as you remain passive and compliant, you make yourself a target.
