Dealing with difficult people at work is a universal struggle, but it doesn’t have to ruin your job.

Jessica Reyes and Daniel Hammond remind us that most people just want to feel valued and appreciated at work. But sometimes, personality clashes can get in the way. That’s where understanding and communication come in.

Don’t let that annoying coworker or demanding boss get the best of you. Here are some tips to help you navigate those tricky work relationships:

  • Get to know your coworker better. Sometimes, understanding why someone acts the way they do can help you find ways to deal with their quirks.
  • Set boundaries. If your coworker is distracting you, politely let them know you need to focus when you’re at your desk.
  • Be proactive. If your boss always asks for status updates, try sending them an email first thing in the morning. This shows you’re on top of things.

If things don’t get better, don’t be afraid to talk to your manager or HR. They’re there to help.

You can turn even the most challenging work relationships into positive ones.
