PCI Webinar with Beth Weisberg

 

Taking the Difficult Out of Your Difficult People

Tuesday, February 21st from 10:30am – 11:30 am ET

Competency: Personal/Interpersonal Competencies

Sub-Category: Understands a variety of difficult behavior patterns and develops responses appropriate to each

Difficult people…does it sometimes seem they’re everywhere you turn? Co-workers, customers, managers…any of them can be challenging at times. Most of us are pretty quick to decide someone else is difficult – and may register surprise when anyone suggests that we are being difficult.

Fact is, many times the problem isn’t so much that another person is “difficult,” rather they just don’t see things the same way we do, or maybe they approach things differently. The result is that we experience difficult interactions with them.

What if we could slow down our reactions to a person perceived as difficult, and take time to think about what’s really going on, then choose our response so we can bring about a desired outcome?

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

·       Identify whether someone is “difficult,” or just seeing things differently

 

·       Better understand what’s going on when others seem “difficult”

 

·       Recognize their own contribution to difficult interactions

 

·       Slow down emotional reactions which set off difficult interactions

·       Maintain control of an interaction by managing their own behavior.
