Rude Behavior in the Office Is Contagious

According to health enews, researchers found that dealing with rude co-workers on a regular basis not only creates a toxic environment, but their uncivil behavior can be contagious and spread through the office like a virus.  As a result of their findings, researchers advise people to make a conscious effort regarding their attitudes.  One psychiatrist also suggests that “If you feel frustrated after an impolite interaction, take a few minutes to yourself to take deep breaths and regroup before meeting with others.”
