【英語島教學實驗室】避免正面衝突How to Stay Sane in a Toxic Office

在工作中難免遇到和自己合不來的人,特別是那些存心就是要給你好看的人,都令人感到十分挫敗,這些人正是人際中的「毒害人物」,真的能夠帶領世界前進的並不是戰士、酸民(haters),而是治癒者(healers)、領導人或和平締造者(peacemakers),所以在工作上有動不動就劍拔弩張的人,大多數原因是因為他們感到威脅、不安,面對他們最好的方式,就是遠離他們並且避免自己受影響而做出不恰當的行為。

1. 忽視酸民Discard haters:

Never allow someone to certify if you are bothered by their meanness or not. If you can’t help but show that you are upset, find a way to peacefully take control of the situation. Usually, the easiest way to do this is to leave.

2. 沉著面對Stay cool:
