Unfortunately, ill-bred and bad-mannered co-workers exist at virtually every workplace and communicating with them can put a major impact on your mood. As you deal with this problem especially when you work in a business center, it's important to not let their behavior hurt you. Industrial psychologists suggest even though it affects your day, never let it come between your work and productivity.
Are you one of them who is not sure how to react with such ill-mannered behavior? Then apply the below-mentioned tips to get in a better position to deal with it.
Don’t let it affect you personally: The employees who are regularly condescending to their coworkers with harsh comments may be overcompensating for their confidence and a sentiment of mediocrity. While it’s something that is beyond your control, still once you figure out their behavior you will be less inclined to take it personally and stay objective about what’s happening. Understand that the rudeness is not just about you.
Consult with a friend: Find out what your other coworkers think about that rude person. A small discussion with others, especially those who have encountered the rudeness themselves, can lead to a fruitful solution you may have never thought of yourself.
Confront at the right time: When you are prepared to confront about the rude conduct, don’t start with the past incidences. That will probably spark counter-allegations and disagreements. Rather, stand up to the rudeness by responding to the specific current situation. Respond like, “Are you calling me an idiot, what do you mean by that?”
Know their conditions: A lot of bad behavior occurs because of the rude person’s inadequate understanding of their limits. It may be the case that the person grew up in a family where bad behavior was the regular day event. You can respond, “let’s talk when you are in good state of mind.”
Keep Distance: While you may end up battling into handling rude coworkers, it might be counterproductive. When you work with a couple of different employees in a business centre, getting excessively associated with someone’s else rudeness isn’t probably going to stop it. Often, the best solution to keep a distance from that person if you don’t require coordination regarding your work. There is a possibility of positive outcome, once they realize you have stepped back, they may improve their behavior to win you back.
It the problem persists and is a consistent distraction for you, going to the human resource division can help you deal with the coworker by reporting his behavior.
