March 28 @ 9:00 am - 11:15 am
Speaker: Monica Wofford, MBA, CSP | CEO & President, Contagious Companies, Inc.
Difficult people can exist at all levels and dealing with them takes time and effort. Wouldn’t it be easier if you could just make them disappear? But what if that difficult person is your boss? Senior leaders and bosses are people, too, but if you are one, or have one, the way to approach conflict and deal with their difficulty is different than you’d handle a typical HR and employee problem.
Make Difficult People Disappear™ is a powerful session that will provide you with advanced level communication and emotional intelligence strategies appropriate for use with difficult people at the highest levels. While humorous and engaging, this session will also be action packed and provide readily applicable take-aways to elevate your own use of emotional intelligence principles, conflict management strategies, negotiation tactics, and communication methods that will make the difficult behavior of others appear to magically ….DISappear!
