How to Deal With a Coworker Who Doesn't Like You

There are a few things you can do if you have a coworker who doesn’t like you.

First, remember that not everyone is going to like you and that’s okay.

Second, keep your work goals in mind and don’t let the negativity of your coworker affect your productivity.

Third, be mindful of how you interpret their actions towards you. It’s easy to assume that someone is acting out of dislike when they may just be having a bad day.

Finally, assess the power dynamics to build leverage. If your coworker is in a position of power, it may be more difficult to stand up to them. However, if you’re confident in your abilities and ready to act independently, you’ll be able to handle the situation regardless.
