Dealing with Difficult People in the Workplace?

If dealing with difficult people in the workplace makes you dread Monday mornings or feel tired before you begin your day – we’re going to take a close look at practical methods and techniques (minus wishful thinking) that you can use in a session hosted by the California Apartment Association next Wednesday.  We’ll post notes here next Thursday for attendees and those who want to tune in virtually.  Concord, CA – Hilton (Noon-2:30 PM).

Try this, google “dealing with difficult people at work”.

What number of results did you get?  We got 12,100,000.  This is a BIG problem for a lot of people.  Gossips, Know-it-alls, The Unteachables, The Stealth Saboteur, Wishy-Washy, the Politician and more -

Sometimes difficulty with others boils down to misunderstanding motivations or personalities, other times there are character flaws which no amount of “trying” will fix. Tough decisions follow absorbing that realization.  Nonetheless, we have to figure out how not to just survive in our job, but thrive.

Let’s explore solutions together. Check back next week for ideas and/or feel free to post your thoughts.
