Dealing with Difficult People

Chances are you know one. Chances are you’ve met one and chances are at some point in your life you will have to deal with one, either face to face or through a mediator. Difficult people are in every organization and can drain you, your employees and your resources. Difficult people can negatively impact your organizations productivity, service, turnover, creativity, and ability to attract high performing personnel. Often times they create a negative culture which clients can sense and often turn away from, which severely impacts the bottom line.

You can’t hide from them, you can’t ignore them and you can’t change them, you must deal with them! Its not as easy as just letting them go. You have invested time energy and resources into training and educating them. You hired them because they brought value to our organization. Giving up on that can be expensive as well. Don’t you owe to yourself and your organization to try and work with them first? After a decade as a correctional officer/hostage negotiator, and a decade being on the front lines of HR, Neil and Jayne have simplified difficult people into two types. Under each type they have identified a variety of different traits such as  “Yes Man” or the “Nay Say- er”, the “Bombastic” and the “Saboteur”.

Learn to identify the multitude of triggers that set off your difficult people, learn tips and techniques to manage and be a S.T.A.R. Join Neil and Jayne to identify, deal with and diffuse the difficult people in your organization and your life.
