Working with people you don't like

Working with people you don't like

No matter who you are or where you work, there will be a time when you have to work with, or do business with, someone you don't like.  This person may be a client, a consultant, a colleague, or your boss.  Negative relationships like this can take their toll.  It's likely that you'll find it stressful working with these people; they may reduce your productivity by wasting your time and energy, or upset you with unhelpful comments.  Working with them could leave you feeling emotionally drained or frustrated; and, longer term, they could even cause you to want to leave your job.  If you can learn how to work effectively with them, you'll reduce your own stress, and enjoy work far more.
