Dealing With Difficult People Course Overview

Learn from the original creator of this course – Mr. Christian Chua.

Everyone at some time is put in a challenging situation and forced to confront difficult people. In today’s offices, we are constantly faced with trying to work with others who may challenge our ability to get things done.

Usually, the difficult person is working from the negative side of their personality, rather than a conscious desire to be difficult.

The person is often unaware of how their attitude or behaviour affects others. They also don’t realise how harmful their actions are to their own career success.

In this experiential workshop, you will understand these challenging people and situations. This course will show you the great value to be gained when you take the time to understand another’s viewpoint. You will be encouraged to change your attitude towards challenging people and change your viewpoint about what they are doing and saying. As a result, you will find a wealth of knowledge to achieve positive outcomes. This will ultimately lead to building better bonds, improving morale and increasing productivity.

Christian will inspire you  to manage your attitude and behaviour so that you bring out the best in everyone, and ultimately improve teamwork and workplace harmony.

At the end of the course, learners are able to:

  • Understanding difficult people and their profiles.
  • Participants will also go through a proprietary profile test Xtreme Behaviours to uncover if they themselves are part of the factor which results in such conflicts. This is part of self-realization. 
  • Understand why conflicts happen and how to avoid them.
