    A simple set of effective communication tools for dealing with difficult people

    The workplace is a complicate place; it is impossible to live a life without discussion and confrontation. For various reasons very often, discussions and confrontation may turn to be very challenging and problematic. Confrontational discussions are normally the reason of many conflicts, which can influence your effectiveness and wellbeing. The way you communicate is the primary determinant of whether the person you are interacting with will listen and think about what you say, be indifferent to it, or fight against it. A lot of conflicts in the workplace can be eliminated through the use of specific language techniques that encourage working together rather than creating ugly confrontation. Some ways of communicating increase friction and anger; other ways motivate people to work with you and not against you. Often the people we label difficult or problematic, including ourselves, just don’t know any better; we may not know how to act differently, or how to deal with a specific situation that is causing us discomfort. Problematic discussions can only be handled when we have a good knowledge of our emotional-ability, conversational-ability and relational-ability. In this workshop we aim to equip you with enough learning and practical tools which will help you to face problematic discussions and general conflicts with confidence and emotional balance.
