Jealous Colleagues

Discussion in 'Workplace dilemmas' started by debity, Mar 18, 2012.

  1. Hello,

    Has anyone had experience of working with a jealous colleague?

    Recently, I've come across someone in my work environment who is ( I've been told) extremely jealous of me. Has anyone encountered this type of negative behavior.

    Personally, I think jealous behavior is a waste of energy!

    The key words here are the ones I've put in bold.

     
  4. Hi, I agree that jealousy is very negative, unfortunately it does happen. I would take it with a pinch of salt however as you say (I've been told).
    I was also told this, and it turned out to not be true. I was left out of a social gathering and was told it was due to jealousy when, in fact it had nothing to do with it.
    Just be pleasant and professional to everyone (as I am sure you always will be) and let others think what they like. Jealousy can rear its head for many reasons, sometimes for something as simple as having a good relationship with students.
    If this person is truly being negative leave them to it, they are the ones that end up needing pity.
    Good Luck.
     
  5. Be positive - it might not be jealousy at all .....












    maybe they just don't like you?
