    “Think of difficult people as sandpaper. They may rub you and scratch you painfully but eventually you end up smooth and the sandpaper worn out…stay happy and enjoy life.” Raymund Salumbides.

    Just like in the mythological world where there are monsters, the workplace has their own share as well. You may have people working in your organization who display similar characteristics of these mythical monsters. These so called ‘workplace monsters’ have a knack of creating dissonance in the organization through the way they think, talk and contribute their labour. If you are not wary of them they can be dangerous in that they can sap away your enthusiasm and commitment to your work and make you feel emotionally bankrupt. Just like the quote above, these ‘workplace monsters’ are like sandpaper and they may cause emotional distress to you by their words, action and engaging in a process of passive bullying. However if you know and learn how to deal with them it will not only make you more confident of your own merits but you may be able to turn things around and see the benefit of working with these kind of people.

    In this action and result oriented seminar you will learn how to detect these workplace monsters so that you can deal and work with them effectively. Workplace monsters are not necessarily bad people - it is just that they have a certain odd way of dealing with situations such that they wittingly or unwittingly create discord and disorder in the organization. By strategically developing the right mental tools it becomes possible to tame these monsters so that you can get work done and at the same time tap into their nefarious habits to come up with a win-win strategy.

    • Understand why some people are difficult to deal with
