Difficult people are everywhere! They can be customers, co-workers, bosses, neighbors, even spouses. This program humorously reveals the six basic difficult personality styles that are out to drain you and your organization of vital energy. You will learn what they do, why they do it, and what you can do about it! Participants will learn how to stay empowered in the face of negative, reactive, and draining people – and laugh while they do it.  Unfortunately, every business has its share of difficult people to deal with.
