DEALING WITH DIFFICULT PEOPLE
Dealing with Difficult People
Dealing with difficult people is one of the most demanding parts of people’s professional and sometimes personal life. The simplest interactions with these types of people, consumes a lot of time and energy and can leave people feeling tired and emotionally drained. Understanding the characteristics of difficult people, why they do what they do and the origin of their behaviour will enable delegates to deal with them more effectively.
“The course provides easy to follow formulas that can be remembered and used assertively in order to achieve the overall objective.”
Fortunately difficult people are well studied and psychologists have found a great deal on the origin of their behaviour and subsequently on how best to deal with them based on their inherent weaknesses. This course relies heavily on the latest psychological research and provides several concise easy-to-use formulas that delegates can use to deal with challenging situations promptly.
