What You Need to Know: Difficult People, Difficult Personalities ™

Presenter: Dr. Miriam Reiss, DSS, MCC

According to a Gallup poll, more than 75% of employees in the U.S. quit their jobs because of their bosses - and not because of the job, the company, or a lack of opportunity. Dealing with difficult bosses, employees, and co-workers can be demanding as well as emotionally stressful. It can impact your work performance, sleep, home life, personal relationships, self-worth and self-confidence. And it can prevent you from performing at the high levels of excellence you are capable of.

In this practical, nuts-and-bolts webinar, Dr. Miriam Reiss will share real-life examples, and show you how to recognize and constructively deal with difficult workplace personalities. She'll identify thirteen key, difficult personalities, along with six personality sub-types, that you must know about.

Discover how the minds of difficult people work, and how to respond versus react. Gain a concrete roadmap for dealing with difficult personalities, so that you and your job aren't negatively impacted by others' difficult behavior.
