I had to work with someone who made it their goal everyday to find conflict with someone. I found the best method to deal with it was not to engage in the behavior with them, but rather to focus on what I needed to do to do my job each day... I. E. Check on customer orders, follow up on quotes, helping customers in the store to create new sales, keep the department in good order.
I had to work with a coworker who seemed to like to make conflict with everyone. I tried not to take it personally as I could see she treated everyone that way. I just kept everything in a professional matter, and took the personal out of it. I would just try to focus on the things I had to worry about every day, such as checking on customer orders, making sales, keeping the department in great shape, etc.
Soml enjoy conflict, enjoy drams. I focus. On my work, keeping the area stocked and orderly, following up on quotes, finalizing designs, and contacting customers to schedule next steps towards appointments.
Work comes first, I am a proffessional and don't let personal relations effect my work.
i did the best of my abilty to work with them and try my best to get the job done
This has happened a few times in my experience. I did my best to stay out of that persons way on a personal level without letting it interfere with my performance.
I do work with a person I do not get along with, I try to say hello to her everyday, tell her what is going on in the department, and try to help her out when I can.
I worked with this person on a profession level.
I asked them to have a quick sit down discussion to determine why there were difficulties in our working relationship. We both agreed to do this with our supervisor and the result was a much better working environment after getting everything out on the table.
I do what is required of me and work with the person and possible through our time together issues may be resolved.
