Working in an office can be a trying experience. There is bound to be incidents that you wish you could take back. Frustration and resentment build up until the point of heated arguments between management and employee.

Every employee want to be acknowledged by their superiors, however, there are times when management is of one mindset. When this occurs too many times, the results can be disastrous, especially if the employee has a short temper. Often, situations that would normally be discussed get out of control and end up with harsh words being shouted back and forth.

When the sparks die down, the employee is left to figure out how to mend feelings and keep his or her job.

After an argument with a superior, the relationship can remain strained for several days or weeks. This creates poor working conditions and can be prevented with the proper communication. Once this occurs, it often leaves the employee wondering if he or she will have a job in the morning. Losing income for even one week will undoubtedly cause serious financial hardship and a blemish on your employment record.

In the business world today, it is not uncommon to have people who will do anything to gain favor in managements eyes. In instances where a blow out has occurred, this may be the best way to get you out of a big dilemma.

It is important that you handle your supervisor with great care. Think about the situation and the way it was handled by all who were involved.

Sit down over a cup of coffee and discuss the occurrence, making sure that you apologize for the harsh words that were spoken, and explain that if you had a chance to do it over, you would do it differently.

Management prefers professionalism and honesty. When an employee is honest, there is more of a chance that no action will be taken.

Usually, when only harsh words are spoken, a reprimand is added to the employees record. However, too many reprimands can also lead to dismissal.

In today's world, business has adapted a zero tolerance against any type of violence in the workplace. If physical violence was involved, you can expect to loose your job and possible police action may be taken.

Sometimes it may be necessary to involve a third party to arbitrate the meeting. This can be the best way to solve all problems and soothe hurt and angry feelings
