Communication Skills, Courses for Everyone

How to Deal with Difficult People

Our How to Deal with Difficult People course is designed for people who encounter challenging individuals; you know them: the Aggressor, the Whiner, the Over – agreeable, the Silent Pouter, the Negativist and the Know-it-All. Although their numbers are small their impact can be significant. They can frustrate individuals and teams, creating absenteeism, significant loss in productivity and lost clients.

How can you cope effectively with each one? In this workshop you will learn how to recognise each behaviour, why these styles persist in their incompatible ways and how to cope effectively with them. Delegates will complete their own Personal Profile and learn how to use their own personality style effectively with difficult people.

This course is ideal for anyone who has to interact with difficult people who can cause a disruption to the harmony of the workplace – whether these people be colleagues, supervisors, members of your team or customers.

On this course we will introduce you to the four main behavioural and communication styles. You will learn how to communicate with people effectively and tailor your response to their style so your message gets across. We will show you how you can change a negative attitude into a constructive one. The skills you will learn on this course will be of benefit to you in all interactions and will help you foster an environment of communication and understanding.
