We all encounter people we find difficult, and typically conversations with them leave us feeling stressed and frustrated. This workshop explores what is happening in those exchanges and demonstrates how people can adapt their strategies to bring about more productive conversations with those they find difficult. Individual approaches for dealing with difficult people will be discussed, with an emphasis on understanding and adapting one’s approach to create different results. Participants will explore how to deal with patterns of passive-aggressiveness, resistance, and chronic anger, and how to begin to change difficult patterns using a straightforward, five-step approach.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Understand their own areas of influence and control in their difficult relationships with others
  • See how their personal style may impact their conversation with a person they find difficult
  • Apply a practical approach for dealing with four different types of difficult people, including the Chronically Angry Person, the Resistant Person, the Passive Aggressive Person, and the Bullying Person
  • Develop a plan to positively engage with a difficult person they have identified

Method of Delivery

Presentation, video, case study exercises, experiential practice, personal reflection, delivered electronically.

*Please allow only the registered individual(s) to view the materials.
