“Working With Difficult People: Handling Types of Problem People Without Losing Your Mind”, May 14 from 10:00 - 11:00 AM PT

Your work day is filled with them--people who frustrate, impede, maneuver, undermine, plot, connive, and whine. In this session, Amy Cooper Hakim details specific techniques for handling them, with easy-to-follow scenarios for different situations. She will discuss modern issues including technology, generation gaps, and language barriers. Learn the kinds of culprits, from tyrants and bullies (regular & cyber) to the pushy and presumptuous; and helpful strategies and phrases for diffusing workplace tensions and effectively resolving conflicts.
