Such behavior may negatively impact workplace camaraderie and productivity.
If a co-worker habitually is rude and makes meetings unbearable, follow some tips to combat the bullying behavior.
To handle intimidating
Your close proximity may turn the tables on the bully, who may feel too intimidated to carry out her bullying behavior toward you.
With the bully's sights not set on you, you may be more willing to participate in the meeting and not worry that you'll be her target.
Avoid sitting directly across from a bully and instead sit right beside her.
This way, you have equal power and avoid a sense of competition.
