Just about every workplace has at least one difficult employee. In this webinar, we will identify the various types of difficult employees and various strategies that can be used to deal with them. Difficult employees can have an adverse impact on the productivity and morale of the workplace. At times it is necessary to have critical conversations with these employees. These conversations occur when a lot is at stake and emotions run high. The behavior of these employees needs to be confronted. More than likely some of those that we must handle may be workplace bullies.
During the webinar, we will learn the psychological makeup of these difficult individuals and how to have conversations with these employees while confronting their unproductive behavior.
