When a colleague is irritating you, there are numerous tactics to help make their presence more bearable. Whether it’s simply taking the high road and letting it slide, or politely confronting the situation in a way that doesn’t cause any conflict going forward, a simple conversation is often the solution.
This is especially true when it comes to training up a new starter. Taking the colleague aside and explaining why they should or shouldn't do something in future not only resolves the situation but it helps with their personal learning and development at the firm.
