OPTION 1: KEEP YOUR COOL

This isn’t really an option at all. Your first reaction should be no reaction whatsoever. You don’t want to lower yourself to their level, otherwise you’re no better than they are. Take time to think before you act.

OPTION 2: BE SMART

Never get negative in writing. If you must, write that email, but don’t click send until you’re feeling calmer and have edited it. But make sure you keep any negative emails they send you – you never know when you’ll need the evidence.

OPTION 3: AVOIDANCE

Avoid them if you can. Negative people will ultimately bring you nothing but negativity, in whatever way you interact with them. Better to avoid them altogether. You may have good intentions to help that stupid colleague, or to encourage the lazy into action, but trust us – they will bring you down before you pull them up.

OPTION 4: TAKE THEM ASIDE

And if you do have to deal with them, you could turn the tables and go OTT on kindness. Invite them to lunch, ask about their day, give them a gift. If they’re evil, this will throw them right out of their comfort zone, and if they’re just annoying you might find that by acting like you like them you might actually like them (fake it ‘til you make it). This may also be useful for noise makers – the odds are they don’t realize they disturb you so much. Disarm them with kindness, then gently explain your issue. If you’ve done a good job, they’ll take it well. If not, go to option 5 or 6.
