Tips for Getting Along Better With Others

Whether it is an overbearing coworker or a frustrating client, dealing with difficult people from time to time is a fact of life. Here are a couple of tips for getting along better with others.

Slow Down
There is great value in being contemplative and reflective. Take time to pause and think about people, situations, and events that cause stress or frustration. Often this simple step can prevent rash commentary, impulsive responses, and unnecessary conflict. When faced with a person or scenario that evokes irritation, stop, take a few slow, deep breaths, evaluate what it is about the situation that is upsetting, and then, if possible, talk it out. Others seldom intend to cause ill-feelings. Pausing to think is often all it takes to clear things up.

Be Positive
Positivity is powerful. People who exude flexibility, kindness, and optimism naturally come across as more attractive and approachable. Simple acts like giving and accepting compliments, being understanding, and smiling contribute greatly to a positive demeanor. Besides just gaining favor from others, being a positive person will also have a ripple effect, contributing to the overall environment. Start by working on just one element of being positive a little each day and it will quickly become second-nature.
