About This Class

This course is for anyone involved with others – at work or at home – who wants to tackle difficult behaviour wherever it occurs. It'll help you successfully settle those difficult interactions that just won’t resolve themselves.
You'll learn to handle apparently impossible situations where people just won’t co-operate: bosses, co-workers, customers, patients or members of the public who act in unpleasant, unpredictable ways.

And it isn’t limited to the workplace; if you ever find yourself struggling in your personal relationships there's help here too.

This course tells you how to identify seven common difficult characters, recognise clues to the patterns in their behaviour, and most importantly, how to understand how to prepare yourself so that you become more effective more often in your relationships.
