We’re watching Netflix’s GLOW at the moment. It’s set in 1980s LA and revolves around a crew of misfit women who reinvent themselves as the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. The thing that stood out and really resonated with us Wonder Women was that they each developed their own wrestling characters but based on who they truly were. Like they had to be themselves before they could be successful.
Some colleagues can be difficult to work with. They can overly criticise, undermine others, and are not trustworthy. I recently had an experience with a difficult colleague and I was really taken aback by it. It was aggressive and unnecessary. And it blindsided me. The emotions that I felt completely distracted me from the work that I was meant to be doing. I felt angry, disappointed, embarrassed, annoyed, dumbfounded, sad, and more. So how to deal with these types of situations at work?
