Difficult and demanding people come to our workplace daily, whether they are your co-workers or your clients and are unhappy for some reason. Difficult people will not miss a chance to complain about your products or services. How do you deal with them and how do you normally communicate with them?

Difficult people are everywhere, and often in our closest environment. Who they are, how to recognize them and how to deal with them? What to do when there is a conflict with such people? During this training, you will learn how to recognize your own functional and your own destructive behaviors and communication habits. We’ll teach you what is a “Management Coral” and where on its spectrum you are.

During the training, we will do simulations and role plays with the aim of resolving existing conflicts in the organization. The main purpose of this simulation will be to observe and improve the customer relationship by having trainers actively directing members to have an effective interpersonal communication. Also, the training is full of group and individual activities, audio-visual, and other useful materials.

Combined trainings can last from 3-7 days (4hrs per day) depending on the number of selected courses. Training courses are selected together with and according to the client’s needs.
