Event is Full: Accepting Wait List Registrations
Are your friends and loved ones sick of hearing you rant and rave about 'you know who?' Do you experience panic attacks as you walk closer and closer to your office? Does your mother or father-in law know what's best for your child? We encounter difficult people at home, the workplace, parent-teacher meetings, retail stores, or just about anywhere. The inability to cope with difficult people often leads to resentment, frustration, and misunderstanding. The degree to which we are affected depends on our self-esteem, ability to recognize “hot buttons”, and effectiveness of communication skills. In this highly-energized workshop, participants will learn effective coping strategies based on a specific model that can build positive relationships with difficult people.
