HOW DO I HANDLE ALWAYS WORKING WITH SOMEONE I CAN’T STAND WORKING WITH?

 

DEAR DALI MAMA:

I always get stuck with one person I can’t stand working with in my team at my warehouse job. How do I handle this?

—Stuck (Canada)

DEAR S.:

What is it about this person that makes you not want to work with him/her? Have you addressed the issue with the person in a constructive manner? If so, and there is never any change, notice what you have in common with that person. Sometimes, people drive us crazy because we have similar qualities or energies within us that drive ourselves crazy, or simply resistance to those particular habits or energies. Once you are aware of your matches with that person and become neutral to them, notice if you still can’t stand working with that person.

At that point, if you still don’t want to work with that person, take proactive measures such as requesting a team member that has a parallel title or skills with that person you don’t want to work with and request that other team member for your team.
