          Okay, you love your job, but those co-workers can be a pain in your tush. Time for a few workplace stress management strategies. We’re talking about useful conflict resolution ideas you can use when communicating with your less-than-favorite co-workers. We’ve all been there. Consider the co-worker who has soooo many problems at home and can’t seem to stop talking about them. Or the co-worker who has no interest in actually working, let alone finishing any projects on time. Or the co-worker who has all of the answers but can’t seem to find the ability to listen to anyone else’s suggestions—sending the project down the path to certain defeat. What’s a sensible woman to do?
