Virtual Lunch & Learn: How to Deal with Difficult People in Business and in Life!
November 17, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
At some point (or many points) in our lives, we will face difficult people, whether at work or at home. These challenging people seem to defy logic. Some may unconsciously be difficult while others seem to thrive on the chaos. It’s easy to let an unreasonable person affect us and ruin our day. Studies have shown that stress can have a negative, lasting impact on the brain and our overall, health. What are some of the keys to empowering yourself in such situations?
When dealing with difficult people, the main takeaway is YOU are in CONTROL more than you think. We will discuss effective strategies that will enable you to control what you can and let go of things you can’t control.
