Dear Experts, I have a co-worker who has a tendency to be extremely critical. He is always negative! He consistently gives out bad vibes and it's starting to bring me down too. I share an office space with him so I listen to it all the time. What do I do? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: #209 If ignoring him doesn't work, talk to him on-on-one and discuss your feelings. If that doesn't work, ask to be moved. (@gradversity) Q#209 Change subject. Disengage from negative chatter (is possible!); turn away/ignore. Read @sweetcareers' great post. (@ValueIntoWords) Q#209 Resp w/positive statements, walk away/don't engage; say "I prefer 2 look 4 good, so stop telling me neg." (@juliaerickson) Q#209 Tell him to cut it out; he probably doesn't realize. Also, get and wear headphones. Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
