We all know people who are hard to work with, but do people think that about us? There are some signs that we should look out for that’ll show we’re not the easiest to work with but luckily, there are also steps you can take to remedy the issue, according to workplace expert Salman Raza.
- You don’t really listen. Do you tend to think about other things – or think about your response – rather than really listening to what someone is saying to you? If yes, take the time to really understand what is being said to you, rather than thinking about your response. Reflecting is important.
- You don’t look deeper into your feelings. If you tend to be annoyed, frustrated, or impatient while working, it could be because of this. To rectify, keep track of your emotions and be sure to take a break when emotions get overwhelming. It’s important to respond rather than react.
- Your body language and tone of voice aren’t what you think they are. You may be giving out off-putting signals to your colleagues without even realizing it. Ask the people you trust for their feedback/how you came across.
