Toxic people in the workplace are a dime a dozen. In any working environment, there will always be people shaving away at the peace we all try to maintain in our minds. It could be our coworkers, our bosses, partners, rivals, clients, and since we’re on the clock, we usually have no choice but interact with them.
Some people would suggest cutting off the toxicity by directly cutting off the toxic people in our lives. But for situations like work where we are expected to coexist with people we may not agree with, a great way to deal with toxicity is by connecting.
We can’t expect people to change for us out of nowhere, so what we need to do is to connect with them. By starting a conversation with the people that we find toxic, we are giving ourselves a chance to inform them of what they have been doing that makes us stressed and at the same time, giving them an opportunity to make adjustments for our well-being. Aside from that, a conversation would also allow us to understand why they had been acting in such a manner, as their actions may have been caused by something else that we can help them with.
It sounds easy when spelled out on paper, but this of course won’t always work. For when talking fails, make sure to reach out to proper channels in the workplace like your supervisor, human resources, or other support groups for assistance with your situation. Still, it’s always good to start taking action yourself, don’t you agree?
