Make It Work: Strategies to Manage the Crazy-Makers in the Workplace

Presented by by Cynthia Clay, President/CEO of NetSpeed Learning Solutions

The most challenging aspect of any job is working with other people. If you have ever asked yourself, “What on earth is he thinking?” or “Why in the world would she do that?” you will love this session, focused on building your ability to work well with anyone – even the people who are driving you crazy.

Learn how to collaborate with those people who sometimes bedevil you at work. Explore four principles and five strategies that allow you to respond constructively in the face of challenging behavior. The speaker will share engaging video examples of challenging behavior patterns and sample dialogues demonstrating how to respond effectively. From the clueless colleague to the drive-by boss, you’ll recognize nine difficult behavior patterns (and learn how to avoid using these patterns yourself). Take away key practices and models that you can apply immediately to your work relationships. One week prior to the chapter meeting, you’ll complete two online questionnaires. Join us and learn how to transform your workplace relationships.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe four key principles and their related practices
  • Recognize five strategies and when to use them
  • Apply the best practices and the right strategy to address one difficult behavior pattern
