Managing Difficult People Training

This 1-day training teaches professionals skills and techniques for building self-awareness, communication, and coping strategies for working with difficult people.

Course Overview

This training course teaches participants how to turn difficult situations into opportunities for growth. Success comes from understanding how we behave, as well as how we can influence others. If we approach difficulties as needing to take place in one or a series of conversations, and we approach those conversations with a plan, we will find that we have less difficult people to deal with. More often than not, we will also have more meaningful and significant conversations.

Course Outline

Conflict as Communication

  • This lecture will help participants define conflict. Participants will also explore how conflict is a very normal part of healthy relationships. To wrap up the session, they will complete a self-assessment to help them analyze how they currently handle conflict and how they might be able to improve.

Benefits of Confrontation

  • This session will give participants a framework for deciding whether or not to become involved in a situation. Participants will also identify some benefits that may arise if they do decide to get involved.

Preventing Problems

  • There are several key ways that we can prevent problems from occurring. These methods will be examined in a lecture and in small group work.

Getting Focused

  • If, as leaders, we are content to only deal with the surface issues, and we are afraid to dig and get at the deeper issues, we will not create a better workplace. This session will give participants some ways to get to the heart of a problem.
