Working With Idiots: Dealing With Difficult People
Who’s Difficult to Work With
What can you do to get the job done in spite of others less competent? Let’s take a look at the 3 different types of people who cause problems when working with others.
1. Shifty Sam
You never know which side of an issue this sly devil will take. Sam is your best friend one minute, and your sworn enemy the next. He vows to back you on Monday, and by Wednesday he’s at your throat using all the information you shared, against you.
2. Pleasing Polly
Polly is concerned about being liked and making everybody happy. Her work style is infuriating. You can’t rely on Polly to make good decisions. Instead, Polly thinks work is one great big popularity contest.
3. Beverly the Bully
Beverly is not afraid to let you have it. She’ll attack you for no apparent reason. She’s an equal opportunity bully, and knows no boundaries when it comes to getting her way.
