Dealing with Difficult People

Do you know how to work with difficult people? How many of these personalities do you recognize?

  • The Know-It-Alls
    They're arrogant and usually have an opinion on every issue. When they're wrong, they get defensive
  • The Passives
    These people never offer ideas or let you know where they stand
  • The Dictators
    They bully and intimidate. They're constantly demanding and brutally critical
  • The Gripers
    Is anything ever right with them? They prefer complaining to finding solutions
  • The "Yes" People
    They agree to any commitment, yet rarely deliver. You can't trust them to follow through
  • The "No" People
    They are quick to point out why something won't work. Worse, they're inflexible

Of course you recognize them. They're the people you work with, sell to, depend on, live with. Learn to deal with them quickly and confidently at Dealing with Difficult People.

Concrete Techniques For Dealing With Difficult People In The Workplace And At Home

Never again fall victim to those who love to make life miserable for the rest of us. This training gives you concrete techniques for dealing with difficult people in the workplace and at home.

It provides specific strategies for getting adversaries to cooperate...bullies to back off...wallflowers to open up...chronic complainers to quiet down. Knowing how to deal with difficult people at work will allow you to approach your job with more enjoyment and your coworkers with greater confidence.

Cooperation, collaboration, and compromise will improve — and that makes for a more productive and efficient workplace for everyone.

How This Program Is Structured

It's structured for maximum learning. You'll experience a carefully designed combination of:

  • Informative presentation
    Your trainer is skilled at sharing information in a way that's engaging. Just sit back and take it all in.
  • Practice Exercises
    You'll do some of these alone, and others with groups or a partner. Don't worry — no one will be singled out or embarrassed.
  • Group Discussion
    Get your questions answered. Share your point of view. These are some of the most stimulating segments of the program.


"… lots of practical info! I'm excited about developing my plan of action, and will look at my coworkers in a different, more open-minded and caring way."
~ Denise Weaver, Senior Benefits Specialist

  • 3 tactics that prevent you from being manipulated by others
  • Hot buttons: how to keep people from pushing yours

Bring Out The Best In Even The Most Difficult People

Let's face it, nobody's difficult all the time (and everybody is some of the time). Your new skills will help you reinforce positive behavior in even the most difficult people — at work and at home.

  • How to handle a coworker who is too competitive
  • How to handle someone who wants to get "too personal"
  • What to do when people make promises you suspect they won't keep
