Resolve to start the year off right : Don’t let office « schmucks » ruin your working life !

Are you already dreading the day you go back to work ? Set your mind towards a more serene return to the office : don’t let your office “schmucks” ruin your working life !

In your workplace, you probably know at least one person with whom you find it difficult to work. Perhaps it’s a co-worker who constantly tries to undermine you, or a manager who doesn’t show an ounce of gratitude for all of your hard work.

And don’t forget to be on guard against your negative behaviors to avoid becoming somebody else’s office “schmuck”!
