When you think about it, life at work is quite strange. Many of us spend a large portion of our lives in the presence of people who, if it weren't for the fact that we were hired by the same company, we might never hang out with. Sometimes things go swimmingly, but many times not. Given that we all have different personalities, motivations, and aspirations, it's not surprising that we don't all see eye to eye all the time.

Luckily for us, when tension does arise in the workplace, there are things we can do to make life easier. Check out this gallery for some tips on how to diffuse workplace tension.
