The modern work environment places many demands on the Manager, not least the need to treat ‘difficult’ employees with the same care and respect afforded to those who are less demanding. Recognising and understanding the cause or causes of this behaviour, and the Manager’s self-awareness of their own behaviour and its impact, are vital in the fight to create a working environment where everyone is treated equally and are afforded the same opportunities.

This managing difficult behaviours training course will provide your participants with both the knowledge to appreciate the reasoning behind what we might consider difficult behaviour as well as the communication tools to manage and overcome difficult behaviours in the workplace.
