coworker
Dealing with a difficult coworker
A story – The wise man and his nasty friend
• A long time ago, there was
an old man who lived near
a village and was well
known for his wisdom and
teachings.
• He used to share his
knowledge through
lectures and meetings and
his whole community was
very pleased for having
him around.
Dealing with a difficult coworker
A story – The wise man and his nasty friend

• However, he used to be
followed by a man that
disagreed and criticized his
blessed messages.
• That nasty person was
always trying to damage his
image around the village.
• And because of that many
people didn’t like him.
Dealing with a difficult coworker
A story – The wise man and his nasty friend

• After few years, the nasty man
became very sick and died.
• And many people noticed that
the wise man was quite sad
during the funeral services.
• And then, someone decided to
ask him the reasons of his
sadness and concerns.
Dealing with a difficult coworker
A story – The wise man and his nasty friend
• “Master, why are you so sad?”
• “Well, today a good friend of mine has
died.”
• “But how could he be your friend?
Since he was behaving badly, trying to
damage your image, teaching and
always questioning you.”
• “Believe me, he was the only one that
pushed me to improve myself, helping
me to think and rethink about my words
and actions without any flattering
comments”.
Dealing with a difficult coworker
A difficult point-of-view

• We need to agree that it is
very difficult to accept
the wise man’s teachings
when he referred to a
nasty person.
• And no one would like to
have a friend like that.

  • 10. Dealing with a difficult coworker Strategy 02 – Don’t fuel the fire • Don´t try to retaliate since it could be the worst thing you can do. • Any exchange of negative words will fuel such destructive relationship and you are opening the door for them to make you look like the bad guy. • Instead, use the oldest trick in the book: – Kill it with kindness.
  • 11. Dealing with a difficult coworker Strategy 03 – Lend a helping hand • Although not beneficial in all situations, sometimes a difficult person is simply a troubled person looking for a friend. • Unfortunately, this co-worker ends up making enemies instead of friends because they don’t have the necessary social skills. • Break down that barrier and you may find someone who could use as a friend.
