    Dealing with Difficult Individuals and Surviving to Tell the Tale

    A difficult individual is not just someone who is having an off day.  Whether intentionally or unintentionally, difficult individuals do things that create challenges for others in the workplace.  While it is unlikely that you can change the difficult individual, greater awareness can help you to avoid falling into the common traps.  We will explore types such as: Intimidators, time abuses, super "agreeables", chronic complainers and narcissists. Although not technically a difficult type, strategies for dealing with upset and angry people also will be covered.
