    There is nothing worse than an employee that drags down a team, but it happens all the time. Actually, there is something worse…a manager that does nothing about it.

    Dealing with People Not Like Us-It’s Difficult!

    3 things to do differently to make progress with “difficult” people.

    It seems to happen in a lot of workplaces. Someone is difficult. It can be a client, peer or (gulp) your boss.  Or it could be that incommunicative guy in the mailroom, the gossipy sales person, the surly receptionist or the aggressive fill-in-the-blank that puts a crimp in your day.   Might be that new Gen Y that asks too many questions, texts too much and talks too little.
