Responding Effectively In Difficult Situations

Every day we encounter situations where people speak or behave in ways that feel disrespectful to us. Often these are people with whom we need to maintain an ongoing relationship. Responding effectively in such situations can prevent ongoing tension and promote understanding opening lines of communication between friends, colleagues and family members.

This interactive course will provide individuals with the knowledge, skills and a framework to help them effectively respond to disrespectful comments, address difficult behavior, and manage difficult conversations inside and outside the workplace.

Topics include:

  • Early response strategies such as:
    • Responding to disrespectful comments, "Did they really just say that?"
    • What not to do - a review of ineffective responses.
    • Considerations to increase the effectiveness of your response.
  • Overcoming communication barriers:
    • Assessing the difficult conversation and setting context.
    • Preparing to deliver the difficult conversation.
    • Actively participating in a difficult conversation (with practice sessions).
  • What if it's your boss?
  • What if you are the boss?
  • When and where to seek help:
    • Indications of deteriorating relations.
    • Identifying and responding to harassing behavior.
