In this section, we hope to build a library of stories about how people have overcome challenging work situations.
To survive and succeed in our careers, having strong interpersonal, communication and negotiations skills is critical. We are all taught the clinical skills required to be a competent doctor but not everyone has the opportunities to have formal training developing these people skills.
Help us develop a ‘how to’ manual by sharing with us how you’ve dealt successfully in unpleasant situations.
How to deal with bullies
How to deal with underperforming colleagues
How to deal with colleagues who think they are always right
How to negotiate roster, leave, pay etc.
How to deal with passive aggressive colleagues
How to manage colleagues with unrealistic expectations
