How to Handle Difficult Co-Workers, Bosses and Micromanagers


On average, we spend more time in relationships with the people that we work with than those in our personal life.


However, who we work with often isn’t a choice that we have, making conflict inevitable, because you’re just not going to get along with everyone all the time.


Conflict and confrontation is not something that a lot of us love, so if the idea of addressing difficult people and situations at work is a challenge for you, this episode has the tools you need to be able to speak up, speak out, and handle these relationships.


In today’s episode of The Aligned Achiever podcast I’m talking about how to handle difficult co-workers, bosses and micromanagers so that you know how to deal with difficult people that you can’t consciously cut out of your life.





In this Episode We Explore:

  • The 3 consequences of not addressing the issue of difficult co-workers, bosses and micromanagers
  • How to respect the power dynamic and still disagree with a senior colleague
  • How you can respectfully set boundaries with your boss
  • Setting up a working relationship around trust and credibility so you can move towards greater workplace autonomy
