Don’t you just hate those difficult people you have to work with?

“Difficult” people can drain the life out of you, and make you want to quit your business, leave your job or just run away. It might be your supplier, your boss, a team member, colleague.

Either way you’re stuck with them for a while and need to make the best of the relationship.

So let’s look at what you can do.

In this class you’ll learn:

  • What it is that make people “difficult”
  • What the “difficult” person needs and how to give it to them in a way that feels good to both of you
  • A powerful exercise to do before a meeting with a “difficult” person to make sure the meeting flows better
  • How to turn “difficult” relationships into smooth-working partnerships

No prior skills needed.
