Workplace conflicts often arise because different people have different ways of doing things. Tips for navigating a clash of the styles:
1. Take the high road. Your attitude, effort level and reactions are all in your control, even if others’ behavior isn’t.
When issues arise, always be positive and professional. You don’t have to be best friends; you just need to find a way to collaborate effectively with them.
2. Work with what you have. Accept the person as he is, perceived quirks and all.
3. Make sure you’re on the same page. Simple miscommunication, such as the desired outcome of a project, can cause friction. Arrange a face-to-face meeting, and follow it up with an email recapping what you discussed.
