You: Hi [Colleague's Name], do you have a moment to talk? I wanted to discuss something that has been affecting our office environment.


You: I've noticed that there have been instances where your reactions to certain situations or comments have caused disruptions and tension in the office. I understand that everyone can have challenging days, but it's important for us to address this behaviour to maintain a positive and productive work environment.

You: One approach could be taking a moment to pause and take deep breaths before responding to a frustrating situation. It can provide you with a chance to gather your thoughts and respond in a more composed manner. Additionally, finding healthy outlets for stress, such as exercise or engaging in a hobby outside of work, might also contribute to overall well-being.


You: I appreciate your willingness to work on this. It would also be helpful if we could establish open communication channels, so if you're feeling overwhelmed or frustrated, we can address it before it escalates. This way, we can support each other and find solutions together.
