Dealing with Difficult People

7th November 2018 in London at CodeNode

This SkillsCast was filmed at Dealing with Difficult People

Aggressive (or passive aggressive), negative, controlling, judgmental, unreliable, inflexible, not a team player, prone to losing it, talks too much / doesn’t listen enough / interrupts... We've all worked with difficult people... It can be distracting at best and de-railing at worst. Especially if this person also happens to be your boss. Often professionals would rather quit than find ways to improve these working relationships.

In this session executive coach Amanda Davie from Equal Talent, will lead London Tech Ladies in working together to explore why it is that some people can be so difficult and how the drama manifests; and to identify strategies for dealing with these people, in order to build (or rebuild) trust, thrive and succeed in our work.

What will people gain? • Insight into why some people are so difficult to work with • Strategies to identify ways to deal with these people • Exercises and practices to start integrating into your life • Tips and guidance to take away
