Question From Job Seeker
I have been working with an organization for more than a year. I like almost everything about it, i.e. my job, my work and the workplace. However, there is one thing that bothers me the most. Some of my coworkers are very hard-headed and difficult to deal with. Basically, the kind of work I do, requires an enthusiastic team-work, like sharing of ideas and mutual creativity. Basically, I come up with the concepts and the said colleagues have to make graphic designs on it. The problem basically occurs when, after much hard work, I come up with a brilliant idea, and they produce relatively low quality graphics, resulting in absolute deterioration of my idea. Due to these few thorny colleagues of mine, I am unable to give a first-rate performance at the tasks assigned to me.
These things did not bother me much in the past. However, just recently, I got to know that every employee is to be given a pay appraisal in a couple of months, on the basis of his/her performance throughout the year. After learning this, I have become much worried about my performance which has been negatively affected due to the difficult attitude of my colleagues. I have only two months to rectify my image and enhance my performance in order to get the appraisal. I need your expert opinion as how can I deal with these colleagues who hinder my progress through their non-cooperative attitude.
