This dynamic webinar is designed to provide you with hands-on, practical tools for dealing with those who complicate and intensify the workplace by their personality and level of demand. These individuals stop organizational productivity and effectiveness in their department or division, and this can ripple through the organization as a whole.

We will cover key material that can teach you diverse approaches for handling difficult personalities and behaviors that work in a variety of settings. From classic, tried-and-true approaches to newer, well-researched techniques, you will learn multiple strategies for bringing forward more useful behaviors from co-workers, direct reports, managers and supervisors.

Why you should Attend

Dealing with difficult people is a universal challenge in organizations. Having this skill set is essential in order to thrive at your job and career. Those who are unable to identify and work with difficult people and difficult personalities will find that their careers become stopped, salary increases, and promotions don't happen, and the individual may even face job loss in extreme circumstances.

On a more personal level, the stress of dealing with difficult people can lead to stress, worry, sleeplessness and may eventually impact health and overall well being. Chronic health conditions may develop from extreme situations, depending on the severity of the problem.
