Tensions are running high amid the current political climate and talking about politics at work with the wrong approach could make it even worse.
Arizona’s Employers Council President Karen Stafford believes that if a workplace discussion turns political, its best to try and avoid potentially strenuous situations.
“It helps too to understand your own emotional hot buttons and know what kinds of topics you’re very passionate about,” Stafford told KTAR News 92.3 FM.
She also encouraged those in the workplace to always look for the best in people and be mindful of the fact that we can offend a coworker without intending to do so.
