Management Training: Dealing With Difficult People Seminar

Dealing With Difficult People Seminar

How do you handle someone who constantly interrupts you? Or who accuses you of being unreliable or incompetent? Or who tries to make you feel guilty? Or who threatens you with dire consequences unless you give in? How do you communicate with someone who uses false, phony, or confusing information? Someone who leads you to believe you have an agreement, only to make yet another last-minute demand or request? Or who drags his feet endlessly? Or who just plain refuses to work with you or others? Or who boasts endlessly, or is passive aggressive, or shouts and yells?

What makes that person refuse to cooperate? It is easy to believe that stonewalling, attacks and tricks are just part of his basic nature, and that there is little you can do to change his difficult behavior. But you can affect his behavior if you can deal successfully with his underlying motivations.

Dealing with Difficult People lays out a step-by-step strategy for meeting these challenges -- the strategy of breakthrough communications. Taken in sequence, the steps enable you to change the game from face-to-face confrontation to side-by-side problem solving. While no method can guarantee success, this breakthrough strategy will maximize your chances of getting what you need in even the toughest situations.
