For high potentials, senior executives, people in transition, and individual contributors

“You can’t change the wind.  You can adjust your sails.” – Anonymous

“There is no such thing as behavioral change. People don’t change their spots, because they have default behavior, just like a computer. They can be helped to become aware of their behavior and then choose to use newly acquired skills or not. I call it a shift or adaptation. Not change. That word is too threatening.

This program incorporates three areas, which impact each other:

            Interpersonal skills       Management/leadership style       Presentation skills

Customized for managers and executives, participants learn to take responsibility for the consequences of their behavior and to be more effective with people in their world.

How to Deal with Difficult People

This interactive and practical program raises awareness of different styles of behavior. In an unthreatening environment, you’ll learn how to use new strategies to overcome negative behavior of others. Often times, people have no clue that their behavior is offensive.  What generally happens is that as you see other styles, you begin to recognize your own behavior as well. 

You’ll learn to be more adept at identifying and dealing with difficult people. There will also be less stress and anxiety when facing challenging situations.

“Ripples of conflict in the workplace can quickly turn into waves of unproductivity and poor morale.  And at some firms, it can eat away at profits and sales.”

                                                                      Nicole Harris, The Star-Ledger

This program, How to Deal With Difficult People is designed for companies that want to increase productivity.

§       Comprehensive workbooks

Results of this Program:
