We have all people who we don't like at our workplace or people that we don't see eye to eye with. However, theres a difference between someone you don't like for one reason or another and someone who makes it a point to try their hardest to make your time at work a living nightmare. I have good news for you. This is known as harrassment and its a serious matter in a place of business. If you have a boss or co-worker who constantly tries to start confrontations with you or give you a hard time, then you can have something done about it, up to having that person fired from the job. Read on to learn how you can go about dealing with a rude co-worker.
You should first be patient initially with the person who is giving you a hard time. Try to ignore it and do your job to the best of your ability. Don't feed into the drama or negativity and just do what you have to do in order to complete your job to the best of your ability.
Know that you don't have to put up with harassment. If you feel that your boss or a co-worker is being unfair with you or harassing you, then you can arrange for a meeting with the person who is over him or her to get to the bottom of the problem. If it is a co-worker, then arrange for a meeting between the two of you and your manager to discuss the issue and work to resolve it. Address your issues and voice what exactly has been going on. This is the time to resolve the issue and find a common meeting point between you and the other person.
If you can, consider avoiding that person as much as possible. This is a great way to avoid conflict and them being rude towards you. If you can find a way to maneuver your way around this person at work and limit your the amount of times you are in contact with this person, then consider taking that route.
Try talking to the person one on one to see if you can identify why they may be giving you a hard time and attempt to get through to them. Be sure you pull that person to the side in private and get to the bottom of it. This is much more professional and may actually solve the problem rather than calling them out in a public setting.
If it gets to bad for you to handle, then you may want to consider transferring to another location or department, or getting another job. This should be a last resort after you have exhausted all other options!!! Do not let this person run you out of your job where you make a living at and have to support your family with!
These tips will help you deal with a rude boss or co-workers and develop a better relationship if you apply them. Good luck!
