No matter how much you love your job, there will still be some people who get your goat or test your patience. These people make you believe in the saying “what does not kill you makes you stronger.” And stronger I have become in the last 10 years of my career. Below I segment some of these people into three categories. If you have come across any of these species feel free to leave a comment and share your experiences.
Now in my fourth job, I truly believe that no matter which job or industry you are in there is no getting away from these people. The key to your success, however, is learning how to master interacting with each one of them. At least they help keep things interesting. Can you imagine how boring things would get if everyone is alike?
