Working With Difficult People: A Workshop

Tuesday, April 20, 2010, 6:00 PM until 8:30 PM

300 South Wacker, 31st Floor
Chicago, IL  60606
Elene M Cafasso
Professional Development event
Registration is closed

If you ever had to work with a difficult boss or team, you know how challenging it can be to perform your job to your fullest potential and shine.  Whether sabotaging success, creating chaos within teams or entire departments, or just making tasks thornier than they have to be, difficult people can generate unnecessary obstacles and impede or dampen the professional success of others.


In this fun and dynamic workshop, participants will learn how to effectively identify and work with the three most popular behaviors of difficult people: passive/aggressive, help-rejecting/complaining, and projection.  Case studies will be used to illustrate the most common scenarios and specific techniques to successfully intervene will be discussed.  At the end of the workshop, participants will learn how to work effectively with some of the most difficult people, reduce the level of stress they experience in the workplace and get the recognition they deserve!
