Have you ever had to put up with a coworker from hell? Please share your experience with your coworker from hell.
No matter what you do, you're always wrong. Your approach to customers or projects is thoughtless and mismanaged. You lie; you cheat; you make excuses for your errors and incorrectly perform assignments. You're incompetent and uncaring. The criticism from this coworker can really wear you down - especially if the coworker has the trusting ear of people who matter.
We talk regularly about the importance of building effective relationships with coworkers to enhance your employee relationships with customers and clients. But, sometimes, no matter what you try, you find that you have a coworker from hell. Nothing that you do, say, or report to others has any significant impact on their behavior, except in passing.
But, when you look back at your work life, the significant impact of your coworker from hell on your life, your family, your self esteem, and your job success and appreciation cannot be overemphasized. A coworker from hell can suck the life right out of you, if you allow it.
Why don't you tell us about your coworker from hell.
