Working with Difficult People: How to Create Positive Relationships at Work and Dispel Workplace Negativity

In every workplace, there are toxic people who create a negative work environment. Maybe they gossip, whine and complain, or undermine and sabotage the work of others. Whatever their behavior, they create a hostile workplace that can lead to reduced productivity, staff turnover, loss of clients and poor morale. It is crucial that staff and managers learn how to deal with negative personalities so they don’t infect the entire workplace.

  • This workshop can be presented fully at 6 hours (6 CEUs – in one or two parts) or condensed to 2 or 3 hour seminars (2 or 3 CEUs).
