Stop Letting That Difficult Person Ruin Your Day
Effectively Handle Negative Attitudes And Difficult People For Better Productivity and Less Drama
We all have people who push our buttons. They drain our energy, take us off track, and infect other areas of our life. The key is to find effective ways to work with your boss, colleagues, or family members by building positive, successful relationships.
HAVE YOU EVER...
From bosses to customers, from family members to friends, difficult people create situations and drama in which we become frustrated, powerless, and ill-equipped to find solutions. This negativity costs you and those around you.
Many of us have learned to avoid, rather than deal with the bullies, know-it-alls, and other difficult people in our life because it is easier than confronting the source of the problem. But, overlooking the problem is the worst thing you can do.
You have more control than you might think.
Nothing can change the fact that some people are simply more difficult to deal with. What you can change is your reaction and your tactics. Success depends on being able to recognize and respond appropriately to different behaviours and situations.
This workshop is MORE than just about learning effective communication skills. Learn specific and successful strategies for dealing with iconic difficult people such as the know-it-all's, bullies, avoiders, victimizers, gossiper, and attention seekers. Discover how to effectively respond, cope and manage the impact of their behaviour, so that you can end your frustration, act rather than re-act, and be more successful.
