More often than not, we don’t realize when someone is displaying passive-aggressive behavior until it’s too late. However, when we’re able to understand the situation quickly, we can take positive measures to better the situation.
We first must see what we have contributed to the situation. Is there something we’ve done or didn’t do to make the person feel undervalued or powerless? If so, then we can straighten the situation out, if not, then we need to go further to understand.
In order to positively make changes to the situation, we must take the leadership role, identifying the part we play in the situation. Once we take the leadership role, we then work to step back emotionally to allow for clarity in the situation. Watch this video to get the information you need to positively deal with a person displaying passive-aggressive behavior.
