    What should be done when one of your colleagues would do anything to ruin your concentration?

    I am working in a software company. One of my colleagues has always been jealous of me as I am the favourite of my boss and other senior employees. So now he has started to disturb my concentration by doing random things like shouting, making a lot of noise , chatting with others etc. He will go out of his way to disturb me. How to teach him a good lesson so he stops this nuisance?

    Hello Friend,

    There are many jealous people like him in our society. You have no control over ther behaviour but you have control over your work, responsibility and work ethics. You have to learn to ignore people like him otherwise you will fall pray to his trap. Learn to avoid him when necessary. The best option for you would be to talk o him and resuest him not to disturb you while you are doing your work. Listen carefully what he has to say and based on that you have to make your strategy. As a professional you have to cope with situation like this all the time. Alternatively you should talk to your boss about this issue to find a solution.

    Bye,

    Hi Dear,

    Instead of teaching a lesson to the colleague who is very fond of disturbing and distracting you, my friend you should just focus on your work. Let him play all sorts of pranks against you but you just avoid and ignore his mischief. With passage of time, he himself would get tired and frustrated and stop playing pranks against you.

    You just need to keep two things in mind - Firstly increase your concentration power so that you do not get distracted with the noise that he makes around you and secondly, let him feel that you are not noticing him at all so that he feels unsuccessful in his attempts to distract you.

    In addition, your attitude should be cool, calm and composed so that you do not look perturbed and maintain a balance between your work and leisure as well so that you could not look stressed out because of the irritating behaviour of your colleague.

    Thanks.

    Hello..,

    You will find these kinds of people who can fall to such an extent to disturb you.In such a situation, first of all make maximum attempts to maintain a distance from such people. Try not to share your matters with them as they may try to ruin your plans. If you feel they are too jealous with you ,let them be. You don't get distracted as they will get satisfaction when you don't work properly.
    When they create such noise and try to disturb , you simply change your working area. On being asked by your boss , you can straight forward reply that you face disturbance which affects your work. I am sure that your boss ,who keeps you in his good lists, will definitely understand your problem.

    Thank you.

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is not good to be jealous.The person who is jealous in nature does not rise in life & is not happy.Such person always thinks of others which pain to the persons concerned.Such person does not worry for own shortcoming & thus they don't try to get rid of own problem.So when one is not trying to get rid of own problem,how such person can get achievement & when one does not achieve any target how one can be happy.

    You need not worry for his disturbance.He will be alright.You should talk to him & request not to disturb you with a warning to report the matter to the reporting boss & another higher official who may take action against him which may hamper his job,because it is very serious charges not to allow others to work well in the interest of the organisation.

    I hope he will realize his mistake & will correct him self.If not report the matter to your boss who will look after the complaint.

    Thanks & good luck.

    In office there will be lot of politics played by the employees.If your colleague want to disturb your work you have to say him not to disturb you or you should become angry on you.As he is jealous on you,you should not give him any chance for to prove you bad among the employees.
    If he making acts like shouting,chatting with others and making noise it not only creates you problem it also creates problems to some of your colleagues.so,talk to them.He is trying to spoiling the atmosphere of the office.so,you first say him not to disturb the office atmosphere.If he don't listen to your words then complaint about him to your boss.then he don't disturb you.
    all the best
    thank you

    these are the people who should be ignored and his childish mentality should not be tolerated firstly you should warn him of his behavior and his attitude will not be accepted.. when you have good impression on you by senior employee then ask them to shift your working space as you face a lot of problems indirectly name him without naming him in particular because don't keep any issues with your irritating co-worker and also you need to talk to your boss personally explain him that he is disturbing a lot and tell your boss that he is doing everything to divert your attention from work.. make sure of yourself to change your place and also have other employee notice him tell your co-worker to support you.. i think he is not doing work which is not at all good he is disturbing the office environment .. boss is right person who can understand you next time he does then don't hesitate it to lodge a serious compliant with your boss.. i am sure that there might be CC cameras installed in the office and each and every one will be under surveillance and the actions which your co-worker does like shouting and chatting with other colleagues will be recorded and when he does it again after your repeated warning go to your boss get the cc camera footage recording make your boss catch him red handed i am sure that you boss will know that he is doing a work of a weed who destroys a good plants productivity .. he is spoiling the competitive spirit in the office and playing a wicked role so it would be appropriate that you fix him in a spot all other members will also notice that from cc footage recordings..

    Some of the colleagues have this habit to ruin your concentration to get the success because they have two options either to work hard or making the other works seems useless, so they target the employees who are their competetors, because if they have the competetion then they will like to decrease it any cost, so you need to be aware for the same because thats gonna be tough for you as these colleagues can go to any ossibilities.
    So you should be good from your side to never give the chances to be getting scolded.
    Also you should not like to speak with the colleagues who tries to speak useless with you because it will be the wastage f your time so you need to concentrate on your work only.
    If your colleague is verymuch aggressive in ruining the concentration then you need to give him the warning that he should not come to your place to make you uncomfortablke otherwise he will be complained to the boss for the same if he tries again then you can go to your boss and then explain the total things that he has did with you.
    So always be in a safer side to ge the concentration .
