VIP Event - Dale Carnegie Training - Managing stress and dealing with difficult people

This event will be held 19th April 2016 in London

This module will help you confront and deal effectively with stress and the behaviors and attitudes of difficult people, rather than reacting negatively. Managing stress is like managing time: it’s all about managing yourself. In this module, you will assess your current reactions to stress, then explore ways to clarify where you have a measure of control. Additionally, we will also examine people with difficult qualities and what makes them hard to work with and we will also have the opportunity to look inwardly to see if we might be a contributing factor in any way to the person’s negative attitude. 

The impact of stress takes a heavy toll on people and organisations. With the challenges of a highly competitive, global economy, the rate of change will continue to create stress. Being able to cope more effectively is a survival issue for everyone, and even an opportunity to thrive.   
Secondly many people seek to avoid difficult people because confronting the person or situation can be exhausting and emotionally draining.  Yet, avoiding these people or situations can make things worse. Unresolved conflicts and miscommunications waste enormous amounts of time and energy, can destroy morale, and impact the bottom-line cost in lost productivity.  

At the completion of this module, participants will be able to:  

-Examine different types of stress and their impact

-Explore principles for handling stress more effectively

-Develop strategies for managing stress with peers

-Apply tips for negotiating and compromising with difficult people

-Work more effectively with difficult colleagues and change colleague’s behavior without creating resentment
