Office politics may be a risky business and this is not away to deal with a co-worker who tries to sabotage you instead of help. In an ideal world, co-workers sabotaging does not have an effective on the professional atmosphere, but this is not true; sometimes friends or subordinates can be competitive or envious. Handing these people is a skill that most need to have.

Going through safety precautions to protect yourself against a sabotaging co-worker is a wise move. Identify and conform the source of damage. If you suspect that a co-worker is getting credit for your work or undermining you in other ways, then make sure it is really happening, and not just all in your head. In doing this, you should maintain written records of your job responsibilities and the ideas you contribute. Most of time, workplace stress may skew perspectives, so make sure to take a step back and look at the situation objectively.

You do not have to be drug into their dramatic world; you can simply carry out your job responsibility and try to prevent feeding them bait to sabotage you.

Communication is the ideal option; it can help you talk calmly to the workers who are damaging your reputation, as well as competing with you for a better position. This is one of the best ways to think calmly, and maintain everything in the right sequence. This is the time to set up a meeting with the senior authority of the company. If it is something that truly affects your professional career, then you should speak up and fix the problem. By setting up a meeting with the managers, you can get the best options to solve the problem of damaging co-workers. A number of professionals have experienced this sort of situation; you should take their suggestions and confirmations to save your job.
