The Conflict Cure:
Dealing Well With Difficult People
Do you ever feel that people are getting ruder? Is all the pressure we’re under just making it harder for us to "play well with others"? After years of training people on interpersonal skills, my participants are telling me that their coworkers are not as "co" as they used to be, and everyone is more frustrated with their working relationships. This workshop is designed to give you tools to gain more power in conflict. Not power over others but power over your responses to conflict and power to prevent it from occurring.
