Tips to Deal with Personal Issues at Work

Conflict is a major concern in both your personal and working life. If not dealt with quickly, tactfully and efficiently conflict could lead to serious confrontation and/or a complete breakdown of relationships. It could even lead to violent and dangerous situations.
Don't Take Anything Personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering.

You don't have to let all that office drama and politics get in the way of your career, nor should you allow them to turn you into someone that would cause dismay to your own parents. There are ways of dealing with these issues while keeping your dignity and integrity intact.

Individuals fighting for personal goals and losing sight of organizational goals can create quite a ripple in the organization. Continually remind employees how their personal goals and efforts fit with the organization's strategic business goals.  

As a manager, your job description often goes beyond professional guidance. There will be times when you'll need to provide a helping hand, or even a shoulder to cry on for some employees. Not every employee can separate between work and personal life, so you have to be prepared for these situations.

Planning in advance and being organized also help boost your productivity. If you are proactive in your approach you tend to be more efficient. The reactive and crisis approach to issues in the workplace breeds inefficiency.
