You’re stuck with a colleague you hate. Rather than complain, be mature. Control your thoughts. Don’t allow yourself to think, “What an idiot.” Judge the content of the individual’s messages, not the style of delivery. Resist the urge to dismiss what you hear. Also watch your body language. Pretend you’re fondly chatting with a friend. Your nonverbal cues, from loose shoulders and arms to enthusiastic smiles, should radiate openness.
