fbpx How Do I Communicate With a Sensitive Co-Worker?
Authored by Dr. Michelle Murray on March 22, 2022
Dear Dr. Michelle:

I work with someone who is very sensitive and I always feel like I'm walking on eggshells because I don't know what will set her off. When I ask questions or suggest doing things in a different way, she gets very defensive. It makes working on projects together difficult. How do I navigate this?
