The Sounds of Advice #17
How to deal with a co-worker you don't like:
Aisling: Try to maintain distance when you can. Be polite to them when they're around. If it's a serious matter then speak to a boss about it. Basically follow the golden rule. Treat others how you want to be treated. Also, if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all.
Sandy: Best thing to do is stay professional. Only say what you have to when you have to talk to them. Depending on the issue, you can always talk to someone higher up as well. I try my best as well to ignore things they tell me as well.
Kate: Always try to be professional and appropriate, even if it's difficult. Workplace issues are never easy to deal with. I know from personal experience. Try not to let it get to you, but if it's hindering you from doing your job duties, speak to someone from management or human resources. They'll be able to better direct you in how to deal with the issue in an appropriate way.
