Dealing with Difficult Behaviors

One of the greatest causes of workplace stress is dealing with “problem” people: customers, co-workers, employees or managers. Most peoples’ reaction is to “fight fire with fire,” escalating an already tense situation. Through the use of self-assessments, strategy planning exercises and skill-building exercises participants will learn to focus on the behavior and not the person and respond in an effective manner which not only handles the situation, but also maintains dignity and professionalism.
