Dealing with Difficult People

Description

Having to deal with difficult people, whether they be managers, co-workers or clients, can lead to staff members feeling demoralised, de-motivated and stressed. This course will look at ways of assessing the problem, trying to understand why the other person is being difficult and how to resolve such situations.
