People are different from each other.
We need not say this as we are certain everyone is aware of it but for the sake of emphasis, we thought we should.
In a group of friends, family members and in every organization there is one (or two) person who will always be difficult to handle, no matter what. From experience, it is not so much as always being difficult, really, they just have a different understanding of things most of the time, and when this happens, you have to spend extra time and exert extra effort with that person to help them be on the same page with everyone else.
To help you out, here are the easiest tricks you can use to effectively handle difficult people they may not even notice you are doing it:
Listen to what they have to say
Everyone needs someone to talk to and would be willing to listen to them. Find out what is making them act the way they do, hear their concerns (because there usually is), and determine what you can do to help and address them. It doesn’t hurt to listen, don’t forget this.
Choose to understand
Once you find out what is bothering the other person, understand as much as you can and do not judge. This will show them that you are treating them the way you treat others. They will probably be more open to having conversations with you and listen to your suggestions.
Show a helping hand
Sometimes, someone is having difficulty making adjustments. While this is something that should not always be tolerated, providing help and guidance will always be appreciated and result in a better relationship, be it working or a personal one, between parties involved.
Play it fair
Treat everyone the same way, whether they are easy or difficult to deal with. This will show your people and everyone else that you favor no one and that you are treating all of them equally. This will earn you respect and will be easy for everyone to follow your example.
Sometimes, we all just need someone to understand to break through the challenges of life and be the best person we can be.
