    No matter how lovely most of your co-workers are, there are always a few personality types that tend to bring down office morale. But you don't have to let Mrs. Stress-y Pants or The "No" Man make your 9-to-5 life miserable. Below, our experts give tips on how to deal with the most annoying workplace dispositions in order to have a less stressful workday.

    The Spotlight Stealer

    You're right in the middle of announcing to the team that you scored a new client when The Spotlight Stealer brings the attention of the group where she prefers it: back on her. When she interrupts your big news with her own, simply keep calm and continue with what you were saying after she runs out of steam, suggests Samantha DiGennaro, founder of DiGennaro Communications, a strategic public relations agency specializing in business communications. You can also lead by example by commending the entire team—"Client X signed on with our group"—instead of taking all the credit with a first-person statement, such as "I wrangled Client X into signing on." Lastly, it can help to encourage the non-self-promoters to speak up, so The Spotlight Stealer doesn't get to play "the hero" every time.
