Tip of the Day: Tips to Deal with Negative People

One of the most important things to remember is not to debate with a negative person as a negative person likely has very staunch views and is not going to change that just because of what you say.

You can give constructive comments, and if the person rebutts with no signs of backing down, do not engage further.

People who are negative benefit more from an empathetic ear than suggestions/solutions on what he/she should do, so by helping them to address their emotions, the solutions will automatically come to them.

Take the onus to lend a helping hand, as just a simple “Are you okay?” or “Is there anything I can do to help you?” can do wonders.
