How to resolve a problem with a co-worker quickly and when to make an accident at work claim against them
In life, it is always best to try to resolve any issues you are having with another person quickly and cleanly, so that you can get on with your life without any of the drama that conflict brings. In the workplace, it is even more critical that you resolve problems quickly, as otherwise conflict can start to affect the quality of your work, and also create a negative atmosphere in the workplace.
If you are caught embroiled in conflict, you could end up losing your job, or at the very least impacting your reputation with your employer, as in the workplace you are expected to remain professional at all times.
- Decide what the problem is. If you are struggling to get along with a co-worker, it might not be immediately obvious what happened to start the fight, or why it has continued as long as it has. You should think back to when you stopped getting along so that you have a real idea as to what caused your dislike of each other.
- Talk to each other. Once you know why the two of you are having a problem, you need to speak to each other and try to get the problem resolved. If you can both remain professional, and each allow the other to have their say, it should be easy to solve the problem.
- Get help from someone else. If you are unable to resolve the problem together, then you need to get someone else to step in and mediate between the two of you, so that you know where you are going wrong in your efforts to be friends.
- Listen. The main thing that stands between you and your co-worker getting along is the fact that you both believe that you are in the right. You need to listen to what they have to say, and they need to listen to what you have to say, to see if there is anything you have been missing about their argument.
