6. Clearly state what you think and how you feel
If you’ve been disrespected or hurt at work, don’t just let it ride. Making pointed remarks to another person suggests that maybe you’re braver than most. Your gutsy, no nonsense persona is what people respect about you. It takes courage to go toe-to-toe with someone you simply don’t like or can’t stand to be around because not everyone is willing to take chances. Without shouting, lay the facts straight in an assertive and private manner without inviting attention. You don’t want to incite fear or intimidation.
