Dealing With Difficult People and Situations
Transform conflict and difficult situations with co-workers/customers into opportunities by equipping your staff with the skills and techniques required to manage these situations with confidence, professionalism, and pride.
Learn ways to resolve conflict with customers and co-workers, influence successful outcomes and develop a peaceful workplace.
We have all experienced the stress that comes from having unresolved conflicts with our customers and co-workers. Conflicts that are ignored or resolved poorly don’t go away, they cause people to feel resentful and to avoid each other. The effects on the business are a loss of productivity, turnover, and absenteeism. Wherever two or more people come together, there is bound to be conflict.
This workshop will give participants a six-step process that they can use and modify to resolve conflicts of any size. Participants will also learn crucial conflict resolution skills, including dealing with anger and using the Agreement Frame.
