Some people just press your buttons. For whatever reason, you react differently to them and they do not react well to you. But you must work with them and often rely on them to be able to deliver successful results in the workplace.
This seminar is focused on understanding the dynamics of your relationships with challenging people so that you can develop strategies to work successfully with them.
Led by a WinSETT facilitator and using experience-based learning, self-reflection, and discussion, in this online seminar you will:
- Explore why you find some people “difficult” or challenging to work with.
- Understand how different styles of communication and leadership can contribute to challenging relationships.
- Learn how to turn challenges into opportunities.
- Identify gender factors that can contribute to this topic.
- Share tips to improve working relationships, especially online.
