Course Developer

There are many kinds of “problem employees” in the organizational jungle. Even the most seasoned professionals find it difficult to deal with someone who employs a hard-edged, aggressive, “take-no-prisoners” communication style, or is “passive aggressive”, or is some other type that harms the culture. In this interactive session, participants will learn a systematic approach on how to deal with these “controlling” types without becoming one. By using a systematic approach to identify and disarm the difficult person, participants will be able to eliminate the roadblocks and build a high performing culture. This course is presented through lecture, group discussion and interactive exercise.
