A colleague has a history of misrepresenting my actions to managers. This is making me look very bad in my company, and is otherwise negatively impacting my brand here.
A typical example is: ask me to arrange a discussion. After the discussion, he write an email to me, CC'ing the manager, misrepresenting what I said in the meeting. For example, if I made a statement "X", he wrote that I made statement "Y", as well as say that I arranged the meeting.
This not only makes it look like I'm making nonsensical statements, but also that I am initiating meetings to make them, which creates the impression I'm wasting time. I feel like the colleague is doing this intentionally to make me look bad.
How do I respond to this kind of behaviour?
